Side by Side Bartending: Making Malaysian-inspired cocktails at Pacific Standard Bar

The real blind test

Text: Rachel Au

Would you be able to make a cocktail following a bartender's instructions without looking at how he does it? Results may vary but this is how Lifestyle Editor Rachel fared

It all boils down to two things: How much you know about making cocktails and how good of a listener you are. Personally, I thought it was doable. The challenge, which I have decided to call Side by Side Bartending, required bartender-in-charge and me to be separated in a way where I can't see what he's doing, but only able to hear what he's saying. As Pacific Standard Bar at Alila Bangsar has been serving three delicious Malaysian-inspired cocktails since early August, who better to ask to participate in this challenge than its Principal Bartender, Ruben Anandha.

Watch the video below to see how it went down:

All three Malaysian-inspired cocktails — Spirit of Tebu, Gula Melaka Old Fashion and A New Era — will be available at Pacific Standard Bar till 30 September 2018. For more info, follow them on Instagram.
