For the Love of Cof­fee & Al­co­hol

Wine & Dine - - APERITIFS -

Shar­ing a love and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for qual­ity cof­fee and de­lec­ta­ble cock­tails, the founders of 78 Alkofelic saw a col­lab­o­ra­tive op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate a haven for their fel­low con­nois­seurs.

A café by day and bar by night, the es­tab­lish­ment prides it­self on its wide va­ri­ety of bev­er­ages, from freshly brewed cof­fees and teas to beers and clas­sic cock­tails, and even cold-pressed juices. Their main fea­ture, how­ever, is their range of cof­fee-based cock­tails.

Their sig­na­ture al­co­holic cof­fee mix­tures fea­ture uniquely Sin­ga­porean twists such as the Fly­ing Sin­ga­porean ($15), which in­volves a heady com­bi­na­tion of ab­sinthe, XO and cof­fee; and the re­fresh­ing Ice Boozy Alkofee ($15), which boasts tangy and sweet notes, and con­tains a bal­ance of Coin­treau, brandy, Kahlua, Ir­ish cream and hot cof­fee. Clas­sic cof­fee cock­tails are also avail­able, of course, such as the ever-pop­u­lar Espresso Mar­tini ($15), which com­bines café liqueur, Kahlua, te­quila, espresso and white rum; the Old Fash­ioned Cof­fee ($15), a dou­ble espresso mixed with bour­bon, bit­ters and brown sugar; and the Alko White Rus­sian ($15) with vodka, cof­fee and Ir­ish cream. The cof­fee used in these cock­tails are from the avail­able daily brews, which vary ac­cord­ing to the beans used—typ­i­cally sin­gle ori­gin beans from Ethiopia, or unique in-house blends.

For cof­fee and cock­tail lovers, it’s a per­fect ad­di­tion to the pop­u­lar restau­rant-dense stretch of Purvis Street and a great stop to toast their favourite bev­er­ages—prefer­ably as a drink in one. 6 Purvis Street. Tel: 9275 9864
