I liked Honi Honi’s Mojito although it was orange, I liked it.  There was a fair share of mint and lime, which i like.  Sometimes the mojito taste really bad when their isn’t enough lime and sugar.  A great drink for a hot summer,

So pretty

Lots of fruits

POLYNESIAN SANGRIA

The Sangria was unsatisfying.  The fruits are obviously added to it before serving to me, so I had to let it soak in the liquor until the fruitiness comes out.  It was rather tasteless until the fruitiness was coming out. i wouldn’t order it again from here though, there so much more creative cocktails to choose from.

This bar is one of a kind. With an outdoor terrace, it is the best place to come to in the summer. Surrounded by green plants, timber and bamboo furnitures, you would think you are on a beach sipping on some nice cool cocktails.  A mini getaway for half a day it seems like!
