Sneak Preview of the cocktails for Johnnie Walker Step inside the circuit lounge 2014

Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Hello everyone, 
I was so lucky to be invited to the sneak preview of the cocktails Johnnie Walker step inside the circuit lounge event 2014, crafted by Ambassadors Shawn Chong and Karl Too of Omakase+ Appreciate, all thanks to Manoah. 

The venue chosen for this particular event was at Omakase+ Appreciate. I never heard of Omakase+ Appreciate before, It is my first time here. I was so surprised that the venue is so unique because they don't have any proper door, they are using forbidden door, and it is located at basement where you have no idea that inside was a bar. The whole environment is so exclusive and Its a great place to hang out with friends and few cocktails for the night. The owners of Omakase+ Appreciate were Shawn and Karl.

Shawn and karl both created two bespoke cocktails especially for the event: " GOLD Cocoa" and "Black Strike". Complementing the rich, bold flavours of JOHNNIE WALKER BLACK LABEL and JOHNNIE WALKER GOLD LABEL RESERVE, these cocktails personify the individual mixing styles of Shawn and Karl respectively, that have established their names in the industry.
