To the working adult, the words “we have a long weekend!” are probably some of the most beautiful to hear, possibly second to “you’re getting a pay raise”. Luxuriating in bed through the whole weekend may seem like a fantastic idea, but here are some better options to make the most out of the Labour Day Holiday, and ease up the Monday blues when the dreaded day comes around.
New Makegolli Cocktails for the Rice Brew Lover at Joo
Inspired by the diversity found in Korean cities and their renowned districts, Korean bartender for Joo Bar, Eddy Jang, conceptualized a series of five cocktails to encapsulate the unique atmosphere of these areas. Each cocktail is based with Joo Brew, a house-made, organic makegeolli that is a light-bodied and mild accompaniment to the flavourful tipples. The heady Itaewon Freedom cocktail is one of the richest on the menu – a Balvenie 17 Year Double Wood Single Malt and cinnamon-coffee infused vodka mix, laced with Joo Brew.
