Signatures are inspired by flavours and ingredients across Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, and even the South Pacific, to present clever concoctions made with advanced techniques such as fat-washing and clarification.
From 22 June to 3 July 2022, seasoned bartender Giuseppe Carneli from Lennon’s located in Rosewood Bangkok will be delighting guests with “Lennon’s Favourites”.
