Bespoke Cocktails & Alcoholic Libations

Part of my job as a dining and nightlife writer requires a passion and knowledge of spirits and liqueurs. In my free time, I find myself (more often than not) dishing out recommendations to the best spots to have a drink or two. Drink up, baby.

It's the weekend! Time to get your drink on. A mix of vodka, elderflower liqueur, grapefruit, and tonic – one Mariko's many cocktail creations that fits in nicely with the bar's sexy, Japanese izakaya vibe.

How bout some Japanese cocktails tonight?

One of our favorite cocktail bars, Manhattan's newly launched Harlem menu is a spanking array of the spirit-driven cocktails we appreciate.

This potent creation is deceptively sweet and aromatic, and a great representation of Manhatten's new Harlem district theme – multidimensional yet simple on the palette, a feat only possible by using their own house-made barrel aged Applejack from the rickhouse.

This Tsukasa Botan [$36] is exceptionally soft and clean with a cloudy mouthfeel, focusing on texture rather than taste. Kanpai!

How are you spending your Wednesday night? Here's a tip: have some spanking cocktails at Studio 1939!

We love taking the complex Silk Tea Route [$24] and getting Hooked On A Feeling [$24] with sweet and smooth rum flavors.

With head bartender Irwan at helm, it's no wonder this is one of our favorite bars in the city!

A spin off the Manhattan, this cocktail on the newly launched Manhattan's "Hell's Kitchen" menu is set to revive you from your Monday (work) stupor.

Daron calvados, Ferrand dry orange curaçao, and Carpano Antica Formula vermouth consisting of house-made cherry brandy (it's a smooth mix of Rittenhouse rye with vanilla pods, cinnamon and cherry) form this spirited cocktail with a soft fruitiness that's exactly what you need to chase the blues away.

Refreshing and mildly creamy with a touch of floral sweetness, this vodka based number is infused with chrysanthemum tea and shaken with elderflower liqueur and fresh lemon juice, finished with a touch of lavender bitters.

The perfect pick-me-up on a Saturday.

Just some of the 20 craft beers available on tap at TAP Craft Beer Bar, opening this Friday at Capitol Piazza. Our personal favorite goes to Strand Beach's House Amber with its caramelized malt and hoppy notes, and the not-to-be-missed 24th Steer Pale Ale by The Strand that's full of savory notes such as cheese, fresh fruitiness of grape and a lingering finish of warm honey.

There's also over 80 bottled beers for you to knock back. Get a move on, this might take a while.

The Cufflink Club serves amazing pizzas (coupled with amazing service) alongside some darn good cocktails. We're absolutely digging the NYC Style pizza ($18) with its delicious thin crust and intense flavors of cherry tomatoes.

Drinks wise, Head Bartender, Aarob Goodall, has set us up with some spanking tipples like Berlusconi ($23), Jack the Ripper ($23) and Porn Star ($28)—cause we all could use a little naughty fun in our lives. 🍸
