THE NORTH CHINA
It doesn’t get any luckier than this. Aptly titled the North China, IB HQ’s signature cocktail lets you sip on liquid luck even if the new year is over.

THE ORIENT NEGRONI
With a name as deliciously opulent as the Orient Negroni, this unfussed Aura Bar cocktail evokes and celebrates all that is excellent and exotic in the east. A delicate blend of barrel-aged Japanese whisky, this Negroni is layered with honey and citrus and even boasts woody and refreshingly bitter undertones.

THE ITALIAN SUMMER
Don’t let its name fool you, the Italian Summer is the perfect drink to prolong the celebrations. With its vivid reds – from ingredients like cheeky cherry, pomegranate and lemons from the Amalfi coast, Southbridge bar’s iconic gin and vermouth tipple will be sure to keep the post new year blues at bay!

THE TIKI APOSTLE
We don’t care what you say about this prickly juicy gem, but the pineapple is the ultimate fruit for wealth. And the Manhattan bar’s Tiki Apostle features just that. So bright, golden and yellow, it is a drink that even Midas would gladly succumb to. With a delicious bouquet that comprises of rum, hazelnut liqueur, champagne, lime, mint and of course pineapples, this cocktail is a mouthful.
Manhattan is located in the Regent Hotel Singapore, 1 Cuscaden Road, Level 2, Singapore 249715
With a name that translates to energy and vitality, and with a glorious orange shade, Cin Cin’s Japanese inspired drink is a delicious concoction with bright refreshing notes. Using the famous bar’s own blend of green tea infused with gin, Prosecco, fresh lemon juice and yujacha, it goes down smooth, and then some.
