World Signature Cocktails

Kawai Ylang (Spirit of Madagascar)

The first of the four World Signature Cocktails brings diners to Madagascar. The Kawai Ylang allows spectators to enjoy the sweet taste of watermelon and at the same time, the gentle kick of the Ylang Ylang.

Jack Legacy (Spirit of America)

The Jack Legacy, which comes with caramel-flavored popcorns, tours Buddha-Bar regulars to the United States. Its upfront and uncompromising taste convinces one that this is definitely a bite of the west.

Sakura, Japan’s representative in the Cocktail Festival 2014, on the other hand offers that distinct – complicated you can say – but very interesting Asian flavor.

And the Goa Masala of India is the closest taste you can get to authentic Indian spices.

More in store

True enough, on the second day, Giroud brings out the artist in him as he shows off his skills through Cocktail Painting Limited Edition.
