Swinging in the Trà Ling
A delicious spin on the mule
The Anh and Chi bar team is batching and canning it’s own delicious spin on the mule: the Trà Ling!
"Trà" meaning tea and "Ling" meaning spirit. Starting with Teeling small batch Irish Whiskey at the base, you are going to find sweet notes of green tea and pandan followed by a healthy helping of ginger.
Anh and Chi started canning our best selling cocktails in Spring of 2021, the Lotus Paloma was our first born, out of passion, and now we continue out of neccessity. Everyone LOVES it! Our canned beverages are limited edition, max two cans per person.
We value quality and all things local and small-scaled, exempified by the natural and fresh ingredients that go into our recipes, alluring art and design that envelopes each can, and the pure nature and love that goes into hand-batching - this mircro mule - for you.
This time, we have teamed up with Teeling Whiskey to create the Trà Ling Mule. Enjoy, while supplies last!
