Penfolds Presents: Peter Chua at SKAI Bar
May 18 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Penfolds presents award-winning mixologist Peter Chua for some wine-based cocktail libations at SKAI Bar for one night only on 18 May 2022.
For one night only, award-winning bartender Peter Chua of 28 Hong Kong Street, Crackerjack and Junior fame will get behind the stick at the bar of SKAI Bar in Swissôtel The Stamford. The mixologist, who won the title of Southeast Asia Bartender of the Year at the Diageo Reserve World Class Southeast Asia Finals and Bar Show 2014, has designed an exclusive cocktail menu of seven different wine-based cocktails that celebrate the signature flavours of Penfolds wines.
Chua’s cocktail creations include the Sparkling Kir, which combines the Penfolds Koonunga Hill 76 Shiraz Cabernet with fresh and fruity ingredients including raspberry liqueur, lemon, syrup and soda for a refreshing tipple. Similarly invigorating is the Bubbly Sangria uses the same wine but marries it with cognac, spiced apple syrup, orange and soda.
Two of Chua’s cocktails celebrate the Penfolds Father Tawny Port, a wine style that goes right to the heart and history of many iconic Australian wineries based in the Barossa Valley, including Penfolds. There’s Port of Crossing, which mixes the port with amontillado sherry, cherry liqueur and angostura bitters, while the Port Flip is his coffee twist on the signature flip, adding a dash of coffee syrup, crème de cacao and egg to the port.
Spotlighting the Penfolds Bin 23 Pinot Noir is the Pinot-Groni and the Picnic Specials. The former is a wine and mezcal take on the classic Negroni, combining the Pinot Noir with mezcal, vermouth, Campari, crème de cacao, and saline, while the latter sees the wine blended with gin, lemon, dry curacao, strawberry and basil.
Last but not least, Max’s Mojito celebrates the Penfolds Max’s Chardonnay by turning it into a fruity mojito using white peach purée, lime, rum, soda and mint.
An array of bar bites is available from SKAI for pairing with your Penfolds-based cocktails. The full Penfolds x SKAI Bar menu is available here.
The exclusive cocktail menu by Peter Chua will be available at SKAI Bar from 18 May to end May 2022. The launch of the Penfolds Cocktail Menu in collaboration with Peter Chua is part of the brand’s takeover of SKAI Bar.
