Trendy drinks for Xmas

Posted by: Phat Mama, 24-Nov-2009

I just got home from the newly opened lounge cum bar twenty one tables + terrace in Bangsar Shopping Centre. It was a special invite for a small group of media friends to witness one of the outlet owners Dan Thompson, concoct several Christmas cocktails in view of the arriving festive season.

Dan and the Cucumber Sandwich Christmas cocktails he prepared for guests.

Dan, an Englishman who openly admits he sounds like an Australian, is an expert at mixing cocktails as he has more than 15 years of experience in the bar and restaurant business. twenty one tables + terrace located on the third floor of the mall is the second outlet. The first is Twentyone at Changkat Bukit Bintang, which opened about two-and-a-half years ago.

Wow! That's a lot of cocktails to finish.

Dan prepared all six drinks Ė the Popcorn Martini, Kiss My Fat Lips, Cucumber Sandwich, French Berry Martini and THE Bloody Mary.

All these cocktails said Dan, are so easy to prepare at home and you don't need special skills to make them. All you need are some of the basic ingredients like cucumber, pineapple, apples and raspberries and blackberry syrup and horseradish foam to combine with your Grey Goose vodka.

twenty one tables + terrace is also a restaurant that serves modern European cuisine with chefs from Denmark. Dan said they are starting with a small menu, although the menu will grow in time to come.

21 might just be the next favorite hangout for KL's trendy people.

 Danís career has been a successful one in the UK but his search for a more challenging career took him to Malaysia where he helped set up Grappa Soho before moving on to Gastrodome, introducing his London cocktails in Telawi Street Bistro. He runs twenty one tables + terrace with his business partner Richard Holland.

Drop me an email if you want a copy of the recipes for the Xmas cocktails. Till then, check out twenty one tables + terrace. It could well be Bangsarís latest hangout for KLís beautiful trendy people.

Wednesday evenings and the weekends are busy as people chill out to chill house played by the eight deejays who take turns to spin on different nights.

Want to be seen? See you at 21.
