If you remember the last time Belvedere Vodka was mentioned on this blog, you will remember the Jimmy Choo Event that we attended. This time, the fragrance that will inspire a host of Belvedere cocktails, would be Invictus, by Paco Rabanne.
For Belvedere Vodka & Paco Rabanne Invictus, 7 of Kuala Lumpur’s top bars decided to create some exciting Belvedere Vodka cocktails that would exemplify Sensuality and Freshness. Would it work? Well read on to see for yourselves..
Incidentally, if you are a fan of Belvedere Vodka, this promotion will run from September to October 2013. Customized Belvedere cocktails will be priced from RM26 – RM45 for full sized cocktails. Or you can opt for four shots of cocktails in each flight, just like the ones you will see above. Each flight ordered at RM78 nett will receive a Paco Rabanne Invictus fragrance miniature bottle as well, so that’s a great way to win a cool fragrance, if you are a fan of Paco Rabanne. By the way, the shot should actually a full shot glass – mine looks a lot less because I already drank mine.. was too delicious to resist!
And for this Belvedere Vodka & Paco Rabanne Cocktail Tasting event, we only managed to make it for the last two bars, in a series of bar crawl locations, so, here is our account of the cocktails we tried at Frangipani & Marini’s.
Frangipani’s 4 titillating, fragrance inspired cocktails included:
Tomato ‘Jelly cubes’
Fresh Basil Leaves
Balsamic Vinegar ‘Caviar’
Bird’s Eye Chili Infused Belvedere
Dark Valrhona Chocolate
Dash of White & Dark Crème de Cacao Liqueur
Vanilla Infused Belvedere
Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge Liqueur
Passion Fruit Puree
Blood Orange Puree
Then it was time to head on over to Marini’s on 57. Marini’s on 57, located on Level 57 of Menara 3 Petronas in the Kuala Lumpur City Centre, is possibly the highest bar you can drink at, in KL. Housing on of Malaysia’s coolest rooftop bars, a contemporary Italian Restaurant and one of Malaysia’s largest rooftop cigar and whisky lounges, Marini’s on 57 is a swanky joint that has a great view of the Twin Towers.
At Marini’s 57, the Paco Rabanne inspired cocktails that we had included:
Belvedere Vodka, Fresh Lemon, Honey, Kiwi Fruit & Grapefruit Juice.
2. Black Xs
Belvedere Vodka, Orgeat Syrup, Matcha Powder, Milk, Chocolate Syrup.
3. Rock My Skull
Belvedere Vodka, Ginger, Red Chilli, Tamarind Syrup, Fresh Lime & Dilmah Ceylon Cinnamon Tea.
4. 1 Million Dude
Belvedere Vodka, Basil Leaves Passion Fruit Puree, Fresh Lime Juice, and Butterscotch Syrup & Blood Orange.
Great pizzas from the kitchen – Marini’s Pizzas come highly recommended
Apparently, there are more goodies to be won – if you purchase a 70CL Belvedere Vodka Pure or Paco Rabanne cocktail flights you will qualify for the bi-weekly lucky draw with 3 chances to win the full sized 50ml bottle of Paco Rabanne Invictus fragrance worth RM235. And if you are a big vodka drinker anyway, consider the 1.75l Magnum Belvedere Vodka Pure that will give you 10 chances to win the full sized 50ml bottle of Paco Rabanne Invictus fragrance worth RM235! Wow, that’s enough drinking activities to keep one busy all September and October, if you ask me!
