Flying Monkey’s New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices – Kampong Glam, Singapore

If you are looking for some gastrobar that serve exotic cocktail, we recommend you to try Flying Monkey’s New Cocktail Menu. It was hardly seen or heard that Indian spices were added to the cocktail and I was skeptical. However, after sampling the cocktail, we think this was wise. 

 

Being an Indian restaurant and bar, one may think that it is located in Little India, however, this is incorrect. Instead, they are situated in Kampong Glam.

Flying Monkey’s New Cocktail Menu

 

A total of 12 concoctions are in this Flying Monkey’s New Cocktail Menu. Among the creation, we selected 5 of our favourite.

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - Flying Monkey ($20)

 

On the top of the list is the signature cocktail, Flying Monkey ($20) named after its restaurant. To be true to its name, the bar-tender selected a blended malt whisky, Monkey Shoulder, together with Cognac, Bitters, Orgeat, Lemon and the Indian Spice that is used for this drink is Tamarind. The end result was a tangy and fruity smooth dark-coloured alcohol. 

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - Mumbai To Milan ($19)

 

Mumbai To Milan ($19) is created as the owner has an Italian restaurant in addition to this Indian Gastrobar. In it are Darjeeling Tea in the mix of Gin, Campari, Aperol and both dry and sweet Vermouth. I enjoyed.

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - Quick Gun Murugan ($19)

 

Quick Gun Murugan ($19) reminded me of Margarita mainly due to the rim of chilli powder and salt and it is also a tequila based drink with lemon, cointreau among other ingredients added. Spicy is what most will notice instantaneously before the citrusy and alcohol.

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - India 47 ($18)

 

India 47 ($18) though consist of caramel which is usually very sweet and ginger which is an ingredient I usually avoid in Rum and Lemon, I like the flavour.

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - Holy Water ($20)

 

Holy Water ($20) is a Jasmine infused in a reservoir of alcohol, Gin, Vodka and Vermouth. I always love floral hint beverage, therefore no surprise.

 

 

The Rest of The Cocktail

 

The Remaining six cocktails are as inviting.

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - Honey Where's My Chai ($20)

 

Honey Where’s My Chai ($20), a espresso and chai infused in dark rum and the spice is cardamon bitters. End result is very much a sweetish alcoholic coffee. Personally, I find it a little too saccharine since I like more of the bitterness of coffee.

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - Lassi Wassi

 

Lassi Wassi is adapted from the popular Indian beverage, Mango Lassi. Monkey Shoulder is the alcohol while the spice is Tumeric that are added to this mixture. 

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - Baby Doll ($18)

 

Baby Doll ($18), blend of Vodka, Pineapple, Vanilla, Lemon and Egg White with Saffron.  I hardly enjoyed Vanilla, hence, no exception to this. Not my kind of drink.

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - Master Blaster  ($20)

 

One of the cocktail without spice is the Master Blaster ($20). It has all my favourite ingredients, a pity I am neutral to the combination.

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - The Japanese Wife ($18)

 

The Japanese Wife ($18) is influence by a love story that started with a letter. Two components made up this creation. Top portion is the sake. At the bottom, to enjoy only after the sake is drunk, is the old monk, guava, maraschino, citrus and saline solution. I like the latter but not so much of the former.

 

Flying Monkey's New Cocktail Menu With Indian Elixir And Spices - Bang Bang ($19)

 

Bang Bang ($19) is at the bottom of my list, as I didn’t like the smoky hint.

 

Lastly, the Gulaboo ($18) a very pretty reddish drink, a pity, I didn’t try.
