5 MIN­UTES WITH ... TASHA LU

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Culture -

BAZAAR em­barks on a cu­cum­ber ex­cur­sion with Hen­drick’s Gin’s brand am­bas­sador for South­east Asia, to dis­cover her creative dis­po­si­tions. BEST DE­CI­SION THIS YEAR ... Mov­ing out of Aus­tralia to Sin­ga­pore as I got to ex­pe­ri­ence dif­fer­ent cul­tures here. The bar­tend­ing scene in South­east Asia is very in­ter­est­ing, es­pe­cially with the re­cent trend of speakeasies, so I have a lot to ob­serve and learn. SIG­NA­TURE DRINK ... Gin Gar­den—one of the drinks I came up with Hen­drick’s in mind. It is a re­fresh­ing mix­ture of sour and sweet with in­gre­di­ents like lime, co­rian­der, green ap­ple juice, black pep­per, and the un­ex­pected egg white. SIG­NA­TURE SHAKE ... I don’t re­ally have one but bar­tend­ing has given my arms a more mas­cu­line edge. When I first started in this in­dus­try, the old shak­ers were heavy glass bot­tomed tins, and I had bi­ceps as big as the Hulk’s! COM­PET­I­TIVE AD­VAN­TAGE ... It has never been an is­sue for me in this male-dom­i­nant in­dus­try. Some­times, it can be a strug­gle but it’s put down to the in­di­vid­ual. If you are strong, in­de­pen­dent, and a team player, the guys will pick it up and they will treat you with re­spect.
