Buro Tries: Making Malaysian-inspired cocktails with RAD Impressions

When it comes to house or dinner parties, we all want to play the part of a good host. Besides making sure the table setting is gorgeous, the menu absolutely salivating and the ambience one where no one would want to leave at the end of the night, the selection of drinks is just as important. Having an impressive wine collection is key but for those who prefer something a little more light-hearted and fun, cocktails are the way to go.

Make them yourself or get your guests to do some work as part of an activity—either way, it’s easier than you think. Alcohol educators RAD Impressions can help you make that rad impression on your guests. They’ve done a series of informative sessions such as whisky cocktail workshops, an introductory level of The Whisky Academy and even built a Buro 24/7 Cocktail Lab at our #BuroTurnsTwo party.

This time, we’ve enlisted their help to make three delicious cocktails inspired by local ‘healthy’ ingredients and ‘instruments’ that you can easily find (and make) at home. Watch the video below to see how we fared—and what a RAD Impressions workshop is like.

Here are the recipes of the cocktails made in the video:

30ml vodka

15ml lime juice

10ml ginger juice

10ml elderflower syrup
