Drinking establishments in Bali are quick in keeping up with global drinking trends. In fact, sometimes they even set the trends by producing distinctive drinks.
The Jakarta Post Travel samples these unique drinks that can be found in bars and hotels in Bali.
Boozy popsicles are a big hit abroad, especially during this summer when it’s too hot for coffee but too early in the day for a glass of beer.
The combination of popsicles and alcohol is a suitable drink for Bali as a summer destination.
L Hotels have been quick to latch on to this great idea – coming up with the Popsicohol program.
In its latest beverage offer, Popsicohol combines fruit-flavored popsicles with a glass of alcohol. They have a wide range of flavors that you can choose from, from grape to lime.
There are recommended pairs that you might want to consider. For example, an orange-flavored Popsicle goes well with a Campari, while strawberry is excellent when taken with vodka.
Sparkling water is also a great choice for those who seek the non-alcoholic version of this treat – it tastes like candy.
Mulia Big Apple Martini
The apple martini is a known cocktail that offers a sweet concoction from a vodka tonic. It is usually garnished with a slice of apple, but The Mulia Bali took things further with its own version of a big apple martini.
The name comes from a literal appearance of the beverage itself, which – instead of a slice – uses a whole roasted Granny Smith apple. The vodka is infused inside the apple, with the top of the fruit carved up for the straw.
Cocktails of Stadium Bar
Stadium Bar in Kuta serves a collection of unique beverages, created by Samuele Morabito, the bar manager. Some of the drinks might be surprising as they combine alcohol with tastes and things that you may not think of.
Their tiramisu cocktail is one of the many examples available on the menu; it gives you a tiramisu-flavored Kahlua. Other examples include the giant sized fish bowl cocktail that can serve five people, and a mix of martini with raisins.
Our pick of the bunch is the condom martini – the drink comes with a condom – described by Morabito as your weapon of seduction to experience a passionate night in Bali.
