Concocted by a champion mixologist, no less.

Who doesn’t love a good tiki cocktail? While most of us won’t get to while away days on the beach too often, having a potent mix of rum, tropical fruits and a bit of spice within easy reach is the next best thing. Capella Singapore is the place to be for all tiki cocktail aficionados from May 4 to 7 when the resort welcomes Daniele Dalla Pola from Nu Lounge Bar in Bologna, Italy. A rum specialty bar, Nu Lounge has ranked among the world’s top 100 bars while Dalla Pola himself has picked up international awards for his bartending expertise.

Taking up residence at Bob’s Bar, Dalla Pola will mix signature drinks like the Kama’aina’ (medley of aged rums and tropical fruits), Nu Mai Tai (Nu Lounge rum blend, aged Martinique rhum, orange curacao and passion fruit puree) and Sexy Colada (Bacardi Carta Oro, fresh coconut water, pineapple juice and ginger). Each cocktail will be priced at $20. In addition to his stint at Bob’s Bar, Dalla Pola will conduct a tiki masterclass on May 4 ($48) and make cocktails for Sunday brunch at The Knolls on May 7 ($148). Bob’s Bar will also host a Hawaiian night on May 5 featuring live Polynesian music and a spread of barbecued meats.
