Skybar's Slew of New Cocktails (and Mocktails)

Yikes, thousand apologies to the good people at Traders for this belated post...for some reason I thought I had posted about this long ago.

The Skybar in Traders is really one of the nicest place to have a drink in KL, and a great place to bring visitors, for its almost 360 Degree vistas of KL, with the iconic KLCC on the one side and the upcoming TRX (aka Sauron's tower) tower on the other....Both sides, at night especially, is rather breathtaking.

In addition to their comprehensive selection of drinks, they have recently added a slew of new cocktails to the menu.  The mixologist, Hafiz, whipped up a couple of interesting concoctions.

Iz Bananz, (sounds like It's bananas), Cachaca Rum, Amaro Monetegro, Banana Liqeur and Lemon Juice...A bit too sweet for me, but definitely those who like sweet cocktails will find this refreshing.

The Fig Sour was popular, a long queue waiting for this...
Walnuts and Figs Infused Bourbon, Fig, Lemon Juice, Eggwhite. 

It's never too early for a cocktail, according to Noel Coward.  And I totally agree.

Tropical Gin Fizz, one of my favourites, Tanqueray, pineapple juice, lemon juice..

East and Zest, belvedere vodka based, lychee, pineapple, etc, and is listed as a signature cocktail.  Cocktails like these can be dangerously deceptive, cos the effects of the alcohol hits you only later, masked by the effervescent flavours of the tropical fruit juices.

Pandan Sour, pandan infused gin, egg white, lemon juice. 

The Asian Delight, basically tequila based, which basically I would shy away from, as tequila and I have a bad history together.

Traders Events are always very generous with their food, even if it is at Traders Bar, so we went back happy and stuffed.

Another angle of the FIG SOUR...

Most of the cocktails are priced around RM46.
