Time Out KL’s Cocktail Workshop

Cocktail Workshop at Social@KL, G Tower








Honestly speaking, I was hoping to go for this workshop since long time ago after attending TimeOutKL's coffee journey with illy...I learnt so much during the TimeOutKL's coffee journey! Was looking forward for this the moment I knew that I'm going for this workshop...





So what is a cocktail?

A cocktail is an alcoholic mixed drink that contains two or more ingredients — at least one of the ingredients must be a spirit.

Cocktails were originally a mixture of spirits, sugar, water, and bitters. The word has come to mean almost any mixed drink that contains alcohol. A cocktail today usually contains one or more kinds of spirit and one or more mixers, such as soda or fruit juice. Additional ingredients may be ice, sugar, honey, milk, cream and various different types of herbs.


Cocktail has been around for quite some times, but there is a misperception about it. People tends to think that cocktail is actually a gal's drink, ie margarita, or even long island tea. Sad to say, those people are not only at the wrong side, but has actually downgraded the value of a Cocktail. Cocktail is actually an excellent electioneering potion, inasmuch as it would renders the heart stout and bold, at the same time that it fuddles the head.


So the main reason why TimeOutKL is running this workshop, it is to install the correct idea of what a Cocktail actually is to Malaysian. It is not just an alcohol, it is not gal's drink, it is more than that!



and here goes what the workshop is all about....

here's how the bar and the place looks like....lots of collection of wine you can see on the right hand side...
