Axis Bar and Lounge, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore’s main bar, serves up several sweet and fruity specialty cocktails along with its menu of wines, champagnes and fine whiskeys. Try the Mandarin mojito, made with Absolut mandarin vodka, mint leaves and ginger syrup topped off with fresh orange, lemon and lime. If you’ve come to the bar after a meal at one of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s five restaurants and prefer to drink your dessert instead, go for the Tiramisu: Absolut vanilla vodka, espresso, Kahlúa, fresh chocolate and mascarpone. Of course, you shouldn’t come to Singapore without indulging in the city’s signature drink, the Singapore Sling, so try this bar’s version, which is made with Absolut mandarin vodka, kirschwasser (fruit brandy), Dom Benedictine and cream.
