Belvedere Vodka cocktails inspired by the fashion and glamour of Jimmy Choo
Belvedere Vodka, the world’s first luxury vodka, is synonymous with fashion and glamour around the world, playing host to key parties during London and New York Fashion Week every year. Cementing this fashion association is Belvedere Vodka’s latest collaboration with luxury brand Jimmy Choo that will run at participating bars from July to August 2013.
Taking cues from Jimmy Choo’s second fragrance, Flash, an ultra modern white floral fragrance, five of Kuala Lumpur’s top bars have created signature Belvedere Vodka cocktails that capture the cool rush of excitement and the sense of power a woman feels when dressed in a pair of sexy shoes. The Jimmy Choo woman is at once provocative and a little bit naughty, she challenges convention; she’s a risk taker, charming, audacious and magnetic.
On that particular noon, we were let looseand went wondering in the city centre trailing 3 participating outlets – Twenty One Kitchen + Bar at Changkat, Sky Bar at Traders Hotel and Circus at Pavilion.
Just love the cosy Twenty One Kitchen + Bar whereby the bar is located upstairs. Bartenders were busy preping their cocktails. Fresh herbs were put into play that pungents my scent of smell, love it – lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf. Felt truly exciting.
Exciting to see the cocktail pouring, a set of four shots cost only RM99nett or if you have a preferred cocktail it is only within the range of RM30 a glass. Here the cocktail, Parading on Catwalk smells deliciousas the present of thyme and lemon lime were detected, nice. Flash has a light brilliant taste as orange, lemon and egg white marriaged well with Belvedre. Silver took a different direction, a strong present of Asian character came into play, strong lemongrass to the lead while merged well with lemon and Belvedre. Fragrance Sour was really good as Kaffir lime leaf stayed well with me and a dash of pineapple juice and Belvedere truly refreshing. Delicious!
The jetting to the Sky Bar was smooth and we waited for our serving. Here the mix was well prepared ahead and the waiting was short. Sky bar at noon was warm and hot defintely will make one to drink more due to thirst. Here the Prometheus was simple and nice done with a dash of lone and pomegrante syrup and the Belvedere present was noticeable. Vanilla Sour had a strong citrusy in taste and played refreshingly. Summer Crush was exciting indeed, I just love the twist of having some sweet balsamic reduction in my cocktail. Fire Passion was definitey furious with strong citrus as passionfruit was marriaged into this cocktail, brilliant indeed.
Well our last stop was at Circus and I was totally numbed with joy watching with such a delight over such strong vibrant coloured cocktails. I loved it, just like love at the first sight. Beautiful and yet elegantly prepared. Cruise was sexy in red, definitely a ladies charm. Triple Sec and lemon played their role well on this cocktail. Jimmy’s Shoe had a great delicious present of peach and played smooth over my sipping. Not bad discovery, will defintely get this shoe home in pairs. Stiletto sounded classy and sexy to me, looked slightly mysterious in colour but sipping it up was easy. As for Runway definelt a show off to me and I just like it, delicious in taste and had a nice body in it too, defintely a well shape recipe. Delicious quattro ! Wish I can take them home with me and giving it a warm cuddle while slurping it away.
The excitement continues at the bar as you and your friends can sample all four of the Jimmy Choo Flash inspired Belvedere Vodka cocktails from each bar in a “flight” – a sampler of four shot glasses available at RM99nett.

About Jimmy Choo “FLASH”
Anticipation. Build-up. Excitement. Those heartbeat moments every woman feels whilst getting ready to go out for an evening of unadulterated fun. Jimmy Choo Creative Director Sandra Choi had a distinct vision for the Jimmy Choo FLASH muse and the emotions she wanted the fragrance to evoke. FLASH is a white floral with a character that is effervescent, carnal and provocative. The fragrance opens with pink pepper, tangerine and strawberry, for a fresh, sparkling introduction. As these glittering top notes evaporate, heart notes of strong, exotic white flowers, with a tuberose signature enriched with notes of jasmine and white lily, reveal a heady, sexy character. A base of white, powdery woods gives a lasting impression that is both seductive and sensual, but never too much.
