Singapore Sips at Changi
So they say that there's no free lunch in the world, but they didn't say anything about cocktails.
From now till 30 June, as part of the DFS Cocktail Festival, travelers at Changi Airport can pop by the Raffles Long Bar at the DFS Wines and Spirits Duplex in terminal 3 to enjoy a complimentary cocktail (or three) - for FREE!
A collaboration with the award-winning bar 28 Hong Kong Street (by award-winning, we mean they were crowned the best bar in Asia - no biggie), Singapore Sips features three unique cocktails inspired by the flavours and culture of Singapore:
Chop Chop Lah
A refreshing drink inspired by chicken rice, made with Absolut Vodka, ginger syrup, lemon juice, East Imperial soda, fresh cucumber and parsley.
Zesty and vibrant, this features Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, lemon juice, date syrup, Luxardo Maraschino, egg white, goji berries and takes its cue from cheng tng, a traditional herbal soup dessert.
The quintessential tropical holiday drink using the beloved Singaporean flavors of coconut and pandan, this is made with Ron Zacapa rum, Benedictine D.O.M., fresh pineapple juice, fresh orange juice and coconut pandan syrup.
If you're traveling over a Friday or Saturday evening, there'll also be mini master classes and guest bartending sessions byJigger & Pony, Manhattan, The Library, and Smoke & Mirrors. Each weekend, the bartenders from each bar will present their interpretation of a Singapore-inspired cocktail.
Cocktail aficionados, you may want to arrive at the airport a little earlier before your flight (and make sure not to miss it).
