MANDARIN ORIENTAL SINGAPORE’S sophisticated bar has a beguiling cocktail list inspired by the flavors and cultures in Southeast Asia, the Pacific Ocean and the Coral Sea. Liquid treasures in bar manager Michele Mariotti’s experimental chest include a barrel-aged water and herb cognac in-house concoction called Rough Waters by the Coral Sea, topped with an edible coral garnish that is dotted with mild red-pepper sauce. In the 7,000 Leagues Ahead is the unlikely scientific mix of gin and oils from kaffir lime skin using a sonic-wave machine that results in a highly concentrated version of the light and zesty gimlet.
