The Unmistakable

Growing up in Malaysia, I was exposed to many different aromas and spices that have influenced my drinking and eating habits. I love finding ingredients that traditionally wouldn’t go together, but in some weird and wonderful way combine to make a flavour profile that is greater than the sum of its parts. Australia (now my home) has native ingredients unlike anywhere else in the world. When I was asked to create a cocktail using Untold Spiced Rum, I wanted to create a recipe that UNMISTAKABLY said something about where I grew up and where I now call home. To me, this was sesame seeds and macadamias.

Vermouth Brings the Funk

Kombucha, a fermented tea drink, has come into vogue over the past few years, with different brands popping up all over the place. Finding a good brand is key and I always prefer to use the unflavoured varieties, as the flavoured ones tend to mask the other ingredients in a drink. Dolin Blanc is a light vermouth with a floral finish that gives the coconut water a lift.

Casablanca

I wrote this cocktail in 2014, when we discovered the local fruit and veg’ shop was selling fresh turmeric.
