Move over Coppersmith – Pewtersmith is in town for one night only! A short while back, Monica, Caning and I were treated to cocktails served in beautiful Royal Selangor glassware with pewter detailing. The new collection called Bar evokes nostalgic memories of elegant witty cocktail parties held in elegant homes. It certainly added sophistication and style to our drinks.
Rick Joore, Beverage Manager and Mixologist of Coppersmith, created some delicious cocktails and a mocktail, which were inspired by Royal Selangor’s pewter roots. Envious of our beautiful drinks? Don’t be! Here are some of Rick’s exclusive recipes which you can try at home:
