It was inspired by Samsui women* who helped constructing Singapore brick by brick. The cocktail had clear ginger overtones, thus connoting with traditional kitchen.

*The notion “Samsui women” is widely used for Malaysian immigrants, who came to Singapore in 1920-s – 1940-s looking for work in construction and industry. Their hard work helped to develop settlements at the Strait and later to set the basis for new nations of Singapore and Malaysia.

Last Push

Glasgow Competition lasted for two days. It was a real drama that totally ceased everyone’s attention. The Final was really exciting:

“The final task was to make six classical cocktails by heart. The quality and the speed were the main criteria. So, you get six random requests, and you need to revive recipes and make them. After that each referee tried the cocktail, and decided if he pays for it or if he gives it back. For every discontent the bartender was given few more seconds. Bannie was the fastest: six cocktails for five minutes an ten seconds. Bravo!” – comments Oxana Smirnova from Russian telegram channel Na dne

That was the way the lady got the title of the Best World Bartender. The third woman who got the first prize for the 11-year history of the contest.

We wish you a good luck and further victories, Bannie Kang!
