It’s my first time attending a cocktail tasting and I’ve developed a whole new understanding for the phrase “cocktail tasting” – we’re treated to a day of marathon-ish tasting of vodka-infused cocktails at 4 top bars in Malaysia, with each introducing 6 cocktail recipes.
The world’s first luxury vodka Belvedere teamed up with the luxury fashion giant to create 2 sets of cocktail flights inspired by their latest fragrance offering, Carolina Herrera 212 VIP for Him and for Her.
If you’re in the market for a new woody scent (yes I love), take note of 212 VIP Men. The masculine fragrance contains cocktail of vodka, gin, passion fruit, ginger, spices and other ingredients that makes it perfect as a night time fragrance. Perfume cocktail + vodka cocktail = so much pun.

It’s a great experience and it’s different from what I expected (well I didn’t see the marathon coming whoops). Of course, I didn’t down every single shot (things counted in “sip” haha) or people would remember me as a guy who likes Carolala Herrara perfume and mumbles nonsensically like my 1-year-old cousin.
Chateau De Caffeinees + Black Market
Marini’s on 57
Located at level 57 of Petronas Tower, the views pretty much can inebriate you without the help of vodka.
Fascinated by the views for about 5 minutes. And then when you realised you’re actually standing near the window at level 57 of a building…
