Chilling out at Bartini Kitchen

When I learnt of the chance to try out cocktail mixing at 'Nuffnang Lovin' x Cocktail Fun' @ Bartini Kitchen,  I jumped on the chance and RSVPed.  And YES!!! I got it!!!  I just can't help but get excited.

Under the umbrella of the WWW Concepts Group, the Bartini Kitchen is of simple modern aesthetic, juxtaposed with the warm wood accents, vintage floor tiles with original artwork by Fran Holden, a UK-based illustrator.  This creates a quirky yet welcoming atmosphere, perfect for all occasions.

Before the bartending workshop, we were treated to a sumptuous dinner by the kind folks at Bartini Kitchen.

The beetroot, spinach and goat cheese salad simply taste great especially when the spinach is really fresh, don't you think the spinach looks seductive? Goat cheese is not my cup of tea, nonetheless, it does not reduce my liking for this delightful salad.

Love the The Retrospective’s legendary Mac & Cheese best, it is truly a crowd pleaser. Creamy and cheesy, yet not overwhelming.  A very comforting dish, I think I prefer to have the whole plate by myself, lol...

Heard the Mussels in White Wine & Creamy Sauce is great, but before I get to try any, they are all gobbled up! I scooped a spoonful of the creamy White Wine sauce to taste and it is really delectable. I regret for spending too much time on the photography that I missed out to try this dish... Urghhh!!!

Yay, finally came to the cocktail mixing timing!  We were splits into groups of 4 to do different cocktail mixing and our team is doing the Bartini Esspresso.  I have always fancy coffee though am in no way a coffee connoisseur; anything that associates with coffee simply attracts me. 

After using all my strength to do all the shaking, My Bartini Espresso is finally completed with 3 coffee beans as the final garnishing.  What do you think of my cocktail mix and how do I fare as a bartender? :P 

Other teams consist of the Pornstar Martini, Fire & Ice, Elderflower Collins, Mojito, The Hunk (inspired by Sex and the City movie), etc...

There is a competition held, where all teams compete against for the 'Best Tasting Cocktail' and 'Best Looking Cocktail' award.

Which  team do you team will win the 'Best Looking Cocktail' and 'Best Tasting Cocktail'?

Drum Roll.... ...

The  'Best Looking Cocktail' goes to the Pornstar Martini team!  The Pornstar Martini is a mixture of vodka, raspberry liquor, passionfruit, a dash of sugar syrup served with a shot of Champagne won the 'Best Looking Cocktail'!  Congrats Charlene and Hannah!

And the 'Best Tasting Cocktail' goes to... the Bartini Espresso team, which is our team!!!  Woohoo!!!  I believe the reason we won is mainly due to, we managed to strike a balance in the portion of the Martini and coffee. The aroma of the coffee lingers around without overpowering the alcohol taste.

All good things come to an end, so before we bid farewell, a group photo is definitely a MUST!

And not forgetting a shot with our mentor for the night  -- Barnaby Murdoch, Cocktail Director of Bartini Kitchen.  Thanks for the awesome experience as a one night bartender!

Last but not least, thanks Nuffnang SG for organizing 'Nuffnang Lovin' x Cocktail Fun', we really had much fun and definitely looking forward to more similar sessions in the future! I would love to attend barista or latte workshop, can you hear me? ;P
