View Rooftop Bar @ GTower (Cocktail Review)

I had been to View Rooftop Bar couple of times for events such as the Unveiling of ABSOLUT ELYX. The bar which is located at Level 29 of GTower has the breathtaking panoramic night view of KL city. I am sure most of you who's working in KL especially those who's driving might want to find a place to chill especially on a Friday evening where the traffic jam is bad, so this is one of the place that I would recommend for you to chill at.

Guest can enjoy their drinks and the KL night view at the same time.
On my recent visit, we were given four choices of drinks after our satisfying buffet dinner before that at Rajang Hall. You can read about my review at the link here. The four choices of drinks were the Carlsberg Extra Cold, Kronenberry, Watermelon Dream and Passion-Tini.

The Carlsberg Extra Cold is a premium beer chilled with extra cold at -2’C. It is available on draught and served a few degrees colder than standard lagers. Carlsberg Export was the first leading premium lager to be available in Extra Cold and has been perfected to keep you cool and quench your thirst especially if you are having a tiring day at work.

Carlsberg Extra Cold
The stylish Carlsberg Export is a premium strength lager (5% ABV) with a refined and satisfying taste. Brewed to the original Danish recipe, it has deep malty notes and a distinct bitterness that which generate a full flavored beer. I enjoyed this beer than the usual Carlsberg beer although it doesn't feel as cold as it stated at -2’C but I feel that it has a slightly taste and easier to drink.



Bartender mixing the Passion-Tini.

Passion-Tini
The Passion-Tini is a mixture of Absolut Blue Vodka, Shaken with Fresh passion fruit pulp, fresh lemon juice, sweetened with home-made syrup. It has the lemon and syrup sweet and sour taste with a great blend of the passion fruit pulp. I'm not a fan of sour cocktail but this might be a suitable drink to have after a heavy meal.

Kronenberry
One of my favorite drinks of the evening, the Kronenberry. It's actually a beer cocktail and it's the first time I had a beer cocktail with Kronenberg beer instead of the usual Carlsberg, Tiger or even Guinness. It's a mixture of freshly sliced strawberry with lemon juice, Monin strawberry liqueur, coriander and homemade syrup, topped with Kronenberg beer and mint leaves. This beer cocktail was so addictive that I don't mind to have a few more glasses.

Watermelon Dream
Last but not least, the Watermelon Dream. It's a mixture of Absolut Blue Vodka, fresh water melon juice, fresh lemon juice with home–made syrup. It's sweet and refreshing, most of the ladies love it. I recommend this cocktail to those who are not a casual drinker and prefer something that is smooth and sweet.
