New Drinks Menus And Cocktails This June

Creative Cocktails At Newly Opened Vesu Pizza Bar

Aqua Group’s latest dining destination is a casual yet elevated pizza joint perched at the former aqua location at One Peking. Whilst we were there, we sampled a couple cocktails from its drinks menu and loved Rapa Nui (a spicy mezcal-based drink), the Unicorn (rum-based and more on the sweet side) and the refreshing Vuo Fà L’Americano. Here you’ll also find an equal number of mocktails (think espresso martini minus the alcoholic kick!), and an extensive list of wines.

Caprice Bar’s Terroir Volume Two

The thoughtfully curated cocktail menu features 10 concoctions that play with words and presentation.
