Since it’s inception, Singapore’s Junior has had a revolving stream of concepts, changing up the menu and even the interiors every six months. When we visited them last week, we discovered that we were catching the tail end of one of these periods.
The Night Nurse is a boozy, mezcal-driven concoction from this current tiki-centric offering. Specifically, the drink headlines a hibiscus mezcal, stacked with spiced orange soda, quinoa wine, and finished off with a little bit of fresh lime. Though quite a visual treat to see the drink as it’s shown in this photo, the bartender instructs you to stir before drinking, because all that red liquid on the top layer? That’s all mezcal. Excellent job, Junior.
If you wish to try The Night Nurse, get to Junior soon, as it’s very likely going away with just a few days. The bartender says that as they are quickly approaching their 6 month mark for this current tiki/island theme, we can expect that major concept overhaul to drop within August. Can’t wait to see what’s up next, Junior.
