Enter Cassis & Rose (200ml: $34, 500ml: $78) and Martini 2021 (200ml: $33, 500ml: $76), the two new handcrafted concoctions of PONY’s line of bottled cocktails, by Asia’s best bar Jigger & Pony. The former features notes of blackcurrant with a smokey finish, almost like a grown-up version of your childhood favourite Ribena – perfect for a boozy dessert. The latter is PONY’s zesty take on the King of Cocktails, with citrus essences of Amalfi lemon and Buddha’s Hand on a base of Roku gin. Time to bring your cocktail game at home to the next level.

Origin’s Executive Set Lunch (from S$34++) got a whole lot better with their three-course Milk Punch pairings (additional S$28++).
