gummy bear

Hands up if you’re guilty of patronising a bar every weekend to get your weekly dose of booze. Well, if you’re part of the clan, we’ve got some exciting news for you. Taking cues from its first memory-triggering edition of its sensorium menu, the folks at Tippling Club have once again embarked on its award-winning cocktail programme now known as Dreams and Desires.

Instead of browsing through a selection of cocktails like you normally would at any other bar, you are now able to get a taste of each tipple before choosing your pick. A first-of-its-kind drinking experience spearheaded by head bartender Joe Schofield and chef-owner Ryan Clift, in partnership with International Flavors & Fragrances Inc., the menu is centered around 12 unique cocktails and presented in the form of 12 edible gummy bears served in a candy bag, scented with the whiff of an English confectionery store. Each gummy bear is named after a specific dream or desire and infused with its associated flavours (think of it as an intro to the real deal).

Beyond the gummy bears, Schofield proves his bartending mettle with 12 all-new cocktails, each designed as a tipple-worthy tribute to the individual namesake dream and desire.

Happiness is a honeyed, citrus concoction spiked with tequila and served with a passionfruit “acid” tab that fizzes into a tart tongue sizzle. If you’re not down for something refreshing, opt for Lust, which is made with a seductive swirl of peach, tonka bean, vanilla and champagne. Fans of vodka: Revenge is a blood-inspired vodka martini teased with umami bitters or tank up your SuperCar (it is listed with a “eat me if you dare” disclaimer) ambitions with a potent fuel of butter, white wine, citrus, petrol (truffle oil) and gin.

In true Tippling Club fashion, the cocktails bring together the best of bar and kitchen, by using cutting-edge culinary techniques and edible garnishes to enhance the overall drinking experience.
