As reported by Balidiscovery,com [Simply Because You’re Sundara],
we’re very much taken by Bali’s newest destination for dining and entertainment – Sundara – the lavish beachfront restaurant at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay.
In fact, Sundara appeal is such is that it can literally be downright intoxicating.
To achieve its rightful place at the pinnacle of Bali’s lively nightlife scene, Four Seasons
invited Barcelona’s celebrated cocktail master Javier de las Muelas and his trainers to spend an entire month at the Resort creating recipes and training the staff at Sundara.
“Javier’s company, DRY, is at the leading edge of cocktails internationally,” says Michael Branham, general manager of Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay
. “We wanted to bring that spirit of creativity and innovation here to Bali to elevate the island’s standard of mixology.”
Javier de las Muelas is known for creating avant-garde
cocktails – combining intricate preparations, unique textures and complex flavors. He owns internationally influential Barcelona bars, such as Gimlet
and Dry Martini,
and also serves internationally as a consultant and trainer. He is responsible for major cocktail trends including spoon cocktails (jelly shots), fresh fruit cocktails and a world-famous mojito recipe - as well as serving as the brand mixologist for Nespresso
where he develops delicious coffee cocktails.
To complement the eclectic international cuisine at Sundara,
de las Muelas has created an impressive cocktail menu, featuring his own refinements of classic favorites, as well as one-of-a-kind signature recipes.
“My inspiration for cocktails comes from both the destination and its ingredients,” says de las Muelas. “Sundara is very inspiring with its beachside setting and the beautiful mix of sea, sand and firelight. There’s a delicate sophistication here that’s very romantic.
Unique Balinese ingredients definitely play a role in his creations. For example, several Sundara cocktails
feature local fruits such as star fruit and the island’s special passion fruit. Another intriguing ingredient is Balinese chili – inspiring las Muelas to make a vodka cocktail infused with chili that uses chili as a garnish.
Three cocktails by Javier de las Muelas stand out as Sundara’s Signature Cocktails:
• Jim-Let Fox-Trot
is a modern variation on the traditional gimlet. The recipe involves creating a unique texture of gin, lime and spring water from a slushy machine, and topping a glass of tonic water and ice cubes with this cocktail mix. It’s a prime choice when lounging in the shade on the Sundara sundeck.
• Thousand Nights
entices with a brilliant yellow reflecting the sun above Jimbaran Bay. The taste is delicate and exotic, combining diverse ingredients including star anise, green cardamom, passion fruit, limejuice and dark rum. It’s ideal for sipping at sunset or after dark when flaming torches light the beach.
• Coconut Rhapsody
is a ripe and creamy cocktail, mixing coconut and gin. It’s refreshing and perfect for afternoons on the beach.
s wine list has been prepared by staff sommelier Suryaveer Singh. The list includes 105 labels with a perfect balance of old and new world wines from both established and up-and-coming regions. Eleven select wines are available by the glass, while premium wines are conserved in state-of-the-art Le Verre de Vin
. The wine list is presented on electronic tablets, making it fully interactive and informational.
With outstanding options for food and drink, Sundara
offers the perfect mix of five-star flair and relaxed beach-club vibe.
