It was a night of awesome new whisky cocktail concoctions at our second bar crawl!
We had a blast last week at Go Away’s second Come Ride With Me event! Some 13 participants went on a whisky bar crawl and enjoyed yummy whisky cocktails from three incredible cocktail bars – The Flagship, The Secret Mermaid, and House of Dandy.
Our first stop was The Flagship, a bar quietly tucked away in Bukit Pasoh Road. Here, participants had a refreshing rye and apple mixer, made with Rittenhouse rye and fresh green apple juice. This tart and sweet cocktail was the perfect drink to start the night with.
Participants were then zipped off to the next location, The Secret Mermaid, in Volkswagen Jetta and Touareg, helmed by friendly drivers.
At The Secret Mermaid, we had our pick of four cocktails to partake in – Old Fashioned, Salted Caramel Old Fashioned, Sangria Sour, and a Whiskey Sour. Some participants went for the traditional Old Fashioned, while others were game to try the quirky salted caramel cocktail – and they loved it!
Our last stop for the evening was House of Dandy. After waving goodbye to our drivers for the night (and to our sweet Volkswagen rides), we entered the eclectic vintage bar at Tras Street. The bartender served up an awesome New York sour called Red or Dead.
It was certainly a night of great tipples and mingling. Many participants enjoyed new cocktails that they’ve never tried before. Says Yee Yern, “I really enjoyed the whisky cocktails – they were a perfect mix, not too strong or sweet. It is also nice going to different new places. My favourite is the last bar [House of Dandy]. I love the Victorian charm!”
