Cocktails have a way of making us feel slightly better, fancier, and happier. A good glass of cocktail will get our party mood on, whether we are drinking with friends or alone. Conversely, a bad one can really dampen our mood. There are limitless variations to cocktails and restricting yourself to a favourite is like only having vanilla ice cream for the rest of your life.
On the rooftop of Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur, we met with Skybar’s seasoned mixologist, Elvis Sun who showed us how to make our own glamorous concoctions using fresh ingredients. Placing emphasis on mixing Belvedere Vodka cocktails, we learned how to shake, stir, strain, and muddle our ingredients together with the luxurious vodka to make a well-balanced cocktail.
The cocktails we made were pleasing to the palate, but we were curious to know what Buro 24/7 would taste like as a cocktail. Elvis was kind enough to show us how to make a cocktail that represents us using Belvedere Vodka. The flavours in this glass made us swoon with delight. We highly recommend that you try this at home — it is a recipe to make any party better.
