Get your Cocktail On @ Crime Cocktail Bar, TREC KL

What’s a fun-loving girl without a good cocktail in her hand? I was invited to check out Crime Cocktail Bara new speakeasy bar in town right here in TREC KL. Its founder, Soulmaker Mixologist Kevin Lee, has won numerous awards throughout his 7 years of being a professional bartender. 

Some of his latest awards include Martell’s Rise and Above Award 2015/2016 and Bols Around The World (BATW) 2015/2016.

Modeled after “The Godfather”, the concept of Crime was inspired by the alcohol prohibition era back in the 1920s and the trickiness to find Crime is one of the most refreshing approaches a speakeasy bar in KL could have. Hidden away from the prying eyes of the public, it’s located just above Crave Oysters and Seafood House.

The Tiki was one of my favourite of the night! Light and refreshing, it’s made out of banana, fresh pineapple juice, speculoos syrup, honey, lime and Kraken Dark Spiced Rum.

Jade of Thousand Layer was an interesting concoction of Puer Ginseng tea with Gin, Don Benedict and Chrysanthemum syrup. It was sweet and super strong.
