In a time of limited travel, MO Bar at Mandarin Oriental, which ranks as one of Asia’s 50 Best Bars, wants to take you on a trip around the region. The bar has debuted a new menu featuring innovative cocktails inspired by the unique flavours of Asian cities.

Starting with Singapore, sip on the Thunder, a thunder tea-rice inspired beverage that integrates rice and herbs served in a locally made ceramic mug (S$12++). While this is a non-alcoholic option, you may also choose to add on a Singaporean gin for an extra kick (S$22++).

The cocktail flavours also take you to exotic locales in the region, including New Delhi with the Soma, a clarified drink with yoghurt, chutney and spices (S$14++; S$24++ with gin). Miss travelling to Korea for your fill of its local cuisine? Order the White Rabbit, which features tomato, kimchi (yes, you read that right), and black garlic (S$14++; S$24++ with tequila).
