From 1 September through the end of the year, destination rooftop bar Smoke & Mirrors will offer a special menu of cocktails featuring Marques de Casa Concha wines paired with canapes as part of the Perfect Match pairing programme.
Highlighting the diversity and pairing flexibility of Marques de Casa Concha wines, Head Bartender Jorge A. Conde has put his unique twist on the challenge, developing two cocktails with wine as the base.
The floral, citrusy El Marques blends Marques de Casa Concha Chardonnay 2017 with lemon shrub macerated with Cognac and jasmine aroma. Combining complexity with elegance and vibrancy, the light and minerally Chardonnay integrates seamlessly with the bright, acidic flavours of the lemon shrub.
Finished with jasmine aroma, the drink is an unexpected delight for the senses.
For a robust, fruit-forward option guests can try the Sirena de Chile, which mixes Marques de Casa Concha Merlot 2016 with single malt whisky, cherry liqueur and Aquafaba. Rich and complex, the notes of vanilla, oak and mocha from the merlot stand up perfectly to the bold flavours of whisky and cherry. Shaken with Aquafaba, a vegan replacement for egg whites, the resulting cocktail is light and refreshing.
Evoking Smoke & Mirrors’ current “Illusion of Flavours” cocktail menu, Jorge’s two cocktails for the pairing challenge push the boundaries of expectations with modern techniques and house-made ingredients. Each cocktail will be priced at S$25++ and served with an array of canapes, including Smoked Salmon, Chilled Pasta, and Prawn with Mango Salsa.
Perched on the rooftop of the National Gallery Singapore, Smoke & Mirrors is known for its spectacular panoramic views of Singapore’s skyline and creative cocktail programme helmed by Head Bartender Jorge Conde.
The destination rooftop bar sets out to elevate the cocktail experience by exploring classic drinks with experimental new twists. Guests can expect innovative menu concepts driven by modern techniques and unique flavour combinations to artfully challenge perceptions. With an emphasis on thought-provoking flavour profiles, Smoke & Mirrors continues to entice curious imbibers and cocktail aficionados alike.
Upon entering, one is floored by the stunning sculptural bar, anchoring the space which is designed to allow for a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors. With plenty of woods, copper tones and warm lighting, the bar exudes a magnetic intimacy. The service reflects this persona too; discreet and engaging.
