Barchef- Daiquiri Adaptation

The drink: ****1/2

This is my first review of a drink but Barchef’s cocktails are exceptional and if you’ve been there or know of the bar then you know exactly what I am talking about. Their cocktails not only taste amazing but invoke your other senses to participate in the experience. The presentation and aromas are extraordinary.

My choice was from the modernist cocktails, the ‘Daiquiri adaptation which is a spiced blend of tropical juices (lime, pineapple, & coconut). They try and have both an edible and drinkable version. As the theme was tropical, the latter was served in a coconut and the former in a glass bowl. The spiced lime snow with fruits was quite refreshing. To top it off, they were both served in a box of sand! Whaaat!

The place: ***

More of a lounge than a bar. There are bites/snacks that you can order but they specialize is cocktails. The lights are quite dim and localized which is intentionally done to ensure your attention/senses are tuned to your immediate surroundings. Good spot for a date but be prepared to spend as a cocktail is $25 average.

The price: $$

Heads up to the friends who don’t consume alcohol, there is some in this one!
I decided to try this to get a taste of a non-traditional mimosa, usually made with orange juice and champagne. I found the blend quite perfect! The right amount of mango sweetness and raspberry tanginess, and just enough bubbly to enhance it all. I would definitely recommend this one!
– Mocha –
(Drink in the front in picture above)
As a mocha-girl, I have to say that I was not impressed by this one. It was almost like hot chocolate with a hint of coffee, as opposed to coffee with a hint of cocoa. A very sweet drink that could please some that have a rather sweet tooth, but definitely not quite the pick for coffee lovers!
