Frangipani – we love the Passionfruit (and the ambience)

Omakase + Appreciate – hidden in the basement of the Ming Annexe – this find is a jewel. Drink the bartender’s cocktail of the day or request the Johnnie Nut Crusta, one of our favourites.

Gaya Island Resort – okay, so it’s not really in KL, but just might be worth traveling for – the Aquastaria looks just like a dreamy snorkeling trip under the sea and tastes just as fresh too

La Boca – authentic Latin American cocktails and possibly the best Caipirinha in town

Frozen Strawberry Margarita

Ante Kitchen and Bar – the Mocharita is a mouthful of deliciousness that could easily replace dessert

Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur – We love their wine by the glass but cocktails are a bargain too! Where else can you get a cocktail for RM18++ with a bird’s eye view of the twin towers right at your nose?

Sky Bar – You can’t go past the classic Lychee Martini in this rooftop bar

Mai Bar, Aloft – Their Birthday Cocktail is a White Russian served in a baby’s bottle. It’s delicious but a bit of cheeky fun too.
