Bartending and cocktail crafting are an art. What looks like a simple mix and stir of liqueurs and juices is actually a form of chemistry that takes time and patience to master. On the occasion of World Bartender Day (February 24), we have listed down eight mixologists to know in Kuala Lumpur.
1. Joel Poon of Reka Bar
As one of the bartenders at the post-modern flavour lab Reka Bar, Poon designs some of the most unconventional and well-balanced cocktails this city has to offer.
"My motto is live well, laugh often, love much," he quips.
When asked about this, Poon just says: "The next drink I’ll be making for you!" Still, we have a soft spot for his Malay-Sian Rose, which is seasonal.
