We’ve travelled around the globe from Brazil to New York City, to bring you the most innovative and exotic national classic cocktails, served up by some of the world’s top bartenders. We explore the origins of each cocktail and look at how they can be served in your bar.

Brazil: Caipirinha

Brazil is best known for its soccer, beautiful beaches, samba dancing and – of course – Caipirinhas. Top bartender, Tai Barbin, shares his favourite twists on the classic Caipirinha recipe to bring a little bit of Brazil to your bar.

Humble Beginnings

As with most of the classics, the history of Brazil’s most famous cocktail, the Caipirinha, is shrouded in mystery. According to the experts, it was probably first created by a civil engineer named João Pinto Gomes Lamego in the city of Paraty in 1856, in an attempt to stop people drinking normal water which was contaminated with cholera. In his recipe, he recommended that people drink a mixture of cachaca, water, lime and sugar.

A traditional Caipirinha is created by combining fresh lime, sugar, ice and cachaça; a “kind of” rum very similar to the Rhum Agricole. Since cachaça became its own spirit category, it now needs to be distilled from sugar cane juice and produced in Brazil.

Below is my favourite twist on the Caipirinha;

Passionfruit and Honey Caipirinha


½ Fresh lime cut in wedges

2 Spoons of passionfruit pulp

2 ½ Spoons of honey

A fresh mint sprig

19 grams of alcohol*(according to mls of the serve)


Muddle the lime into an Old Fashioned glass.

Fill the glass ¾ full with crushed ice.

Add the honey, cachaça and passionfruit pulp to the ice.

Stir well to mix all the ingredients and serve.

Garnish with a fresh mint sprig

Singapore: Singapore Sling

A force to be reckoned with on the international bar scene, nothing captures Singapore’s burgeoning cocktail culture quite like its eponymous national classic, the Singapore Sling. Din Hassan, head bartender at CÉ LA VI, reveals his favourite twist on this timeless classic.

Sling Beginnings

The Singapore Sling was created by Ngiam Tong Boon, some time between 1913 and 1915, while he was bartending at Long Bar, located in the heart of one of Singapore’s most iconic establishments, the Raffles Hotel. Today, they still have the reputation of making the best Singapore Slings in the world!

The traditional Singapore Sling recipe contains gin, orange liqueur, cherry liqueur, Benedictine, lime juice, pineapple juice, grenadine and angostura bitters.

I reinvented this national favourite and named it the “Retro Sling”. An experimenter by nature, I conceptualise cocktails that deliver a multi-sensory experience; engaging the senses visually and texturally, with a focus on a seamless harmony of flavours. In this serve, one of the ingredients is tabasco sauce which gives a subtle, spicy aftertaste. I also garnish it with a chocolate-coated biscuit, evoking fond memories amongst Singaporeans of their favourite childhood snack.

The Retro Sling

20ml Cherry liqueur

40ml Freshly squeezed lime juice

22ml Simple syrup

3 Dashes chocolate bitters

2 Dashes of tabasco sauce

Chocolate biscuit for garnish

16 grams of alcohol*(according to mls of the serve)


Combine all the ingredients in the shaker.

Shake hard then top up with soda water in the shaker.

Strain into a coupe glass.

Garnish with a chocolate wafer and a mint sprig.

New York: The Manhattan

New York is renowned for being one of the global leaders in craft cocktail culture, and there’s no shortage of nightlife in the city that never sleeps! Jess Vida, bartender at Atlas, Singapore shares the history behind the famous Manhattan cocktail and reveals his very own twist on the classic.

Manhattan Mystery

The Manhattan’s history stems back to the late 1800’s in the north-eastern region of the United States. However, as with any classic cocktail worth its salt, there are countless origin stories floating around. Several sources claim that it was created in Maryland, then popularised in New York as the “Manhattan”. As one story has it, in 1876 a bartender at the Palo Alto Hotel in Maryland made it up on the spot for a customer who had just won a dual and was a bit shaken up.

A Manhattan in its simplest form is a dash of bitters, 1 part sweet vermouth, 2 parts rye whiskey stirred with ice and strained into a cocktail glass. There are many people who have either claimed, or had a claim put in for them, that they created the Manhattan. Who actually did? To be honest, I have no idea! But here is my favourite way of making it – a slight twist on the notorious classic.

Turtle Coffee Cocktail for National Coffee Day

Thanks to Staples for sponsoring today’s post. As always, all opinions are honestly my own.

Happy National Coffee Day, friends!! A day just for celebrating one of my favorite things! My friends at Staples asked me if I’d be interested in helping kick off the party by sharing an original recipe made with coffee. Um, YES. Erin and I got together on a Friday night to brainstorm and create a tasty treat for you, and I finally get to share it with you today. Get ready for the Turtle Coffee Cocktail!

Before I share the recipe, first things first. I have to give you a sneak peek at my new toy, the Starbucks Verismo Brewing System. It’s the next best thing to having your favorite barista living in your house. It’s so easy to use, and you can quickly brew espresso, an Americano, a Café Latte, brewed coffee, and so much more at the touch of a button or two.

Before using the machine, fill the water tank in the back all the way up to the line, which will last a good while. Then, all you have to do is choose what you want to make, lift the lever on the top of the machine, and place your pod inside. The pods are available in a variety of blends, including Espresso roast, Veranda Blend, Pike Place Roast, Caffé Verona, and more. If you’re not a coffee lover, they also come in a yummy Masala Chai, and there are Milk Pods you can use with any roast.

Once your pod is in place, just lower the handle firmly and push the button that corresponds to what you’re using…the top one is for espresso, the middle one is for regular coffee, and the bottom is for a milk pod. The machine will take it from there and brew you the perfect cup. I’m loving it; not only do I use it for coffee, I often brew chai for myself in the morning, starting with a chai pod then adding a milk pod to finish up. I also came up with a fun recipe for a fancy espresso shot. But right now it’s time to talk about a different recipe…check it out.


Turtle Coffee Cocktail Ingredients :

1/4 cup <2 oz>brewed coffee – we used Pike Place, which is a medium roast
1/4 cup <2 oz>Bailey’s Original Irish Cream
1/2 cup <4 oz>milk
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
chocolate and caramel syrup
whipped cream
crushed pecans

Pour coffee (make sure the coffee is cold, or throw some ice in), Bailey’s, and milk into a blender and add 2 scoops of ice cream. Squeeze chocolate and caramel syrup in, as much as you like. Blend until smooth. Drizzle chocolate and caramel syrup on the inside of your glass, then pour the mixture in. Top with whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate and caramel syrup, and crushed pecans.

Of course, as with any recipe, there are variations you can make for your dietary needs and preferences.

ALCOHOL FREE: Substitute Bailey’s non-alcoholic Irish Creamer for the actual Bailey’s.

LOW-FAT: We actually did this for ours; we used nonfat milk and lowfat ice cream. You can also get light whipped cream or leave off the whipped cream altogether.

GLUTEN FREE: To the best of our knowledge and research, this recipe is gluten free as is. However, always check the labels on each individual product you’re using to be sure, since there are a huge variety of brands when it comes to ice cream, whipped cream, syrups, etc.

NUT FREE: Simply leave off the pecan topping and you should be good to go! As always, though, double check the ingredient labels on your specific products to be sure.

CAFFEINE FREE: Use a decaf roast, as we did, or leave out the coffee . Additionally, chocolate has a small amount of caffeine, so you may also want to leave out the chocolate syrup and just enjoy the caramel.

DAIRY FREE: Sorry, this one isn’t easy. Ice cream, milk, Bailey’s, whipped cream, and caramel all have dairy in them. There aren’t a ton of good substitutions, but your best alternative is probably to use soy milk and soy ice cream, leave off the caramel and whipped cream, and substitute Kalhua for the Bailey’s. Or you could just brew yourself a cup of coffee. Probably easier.

Honestly? This drink was absolutely, amazingly delicious. We were just kind of playing around with the ingredients and taking guesses at how much to use, figuring we’d tweak what we needed to, but after one taste, we decided the recipe didn’t need a single change! I hope you get a chance to give it a try and that you enjoy it as much as we did!
