Sunquick SELECT rewarded 11 Sunquick SELECT contest winners, media, and invited guests with a premium dining experience at RuMa Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur on 10 January 2020, creatively showcasing their latest product range with specially made mocktails paired with a customised fusion menu. Complementing the drinks and the food was a magic show by Andrew Lee, as well as performances by special guest artistes Dennis Lau, Fara and Elaine Lee, performing some of their hit songs including “The Journey”, “Good Fight” and “Esok”.
New additions to the Sunquick SELECT product range includes Mixed Berries, Pink Guava and Blackcurrant, are made from handpicked premium quality fruits produced in Europe. It is high in Vitamin C and more value for money as it is twice as strobing with its 1:9 dilution versus 1:4 dilution with other brands in the market. The SELECT range, which can be enjoyed on its own, is very versatile and can also be used as a mixer of part of cocktails.
Sunquick SELECT showcased their three (3) new flavours in three (3) complex mocktail recipes that were specially crafted by up-and-coming female mixologist, Raz Ng. The mocktails named ‘Berries First Crush’, ‘Pink Rush’ and ‘XOX’ were individually paired with a personalised Sunquick SELECT 4-course menu by the hotel’s Executive Chef, Chef Tyson, which further increases the dining experience to a whole different level.
“Tonight, is all about creating a flavourful experience as we felt it was the right time to leverage on our knowledge in concentrate as the number one (1) brand in concentrate drinks in Malaysia”, said Soren Ravn, Executive Vice President, Asia
With me was hot Instagrammer Collins!
The first pairing of the evening was ‘Berries First Crush’ mocktail with Chicken Parfait infused with Sunquick Pink-Guava and Strawberry reduction, sorrel and savoury crumble. The combination of this pairing gave a delicate flavour, striking a balance between fresh tangy taste and sweetness. The mocktail was also complex and refreshing due to the use of ginger and hint of mint.
The second course consisted of the “Pink Rush” mocktail paired with local clams, tomatoes, saffron spiced broth with hint of Sunquick Lemon. This menu-pairing offered an intense musk flavour and an overall fruity-inspired recipe. The ‘Pink Rush’ mocktail gave a hint of umami from the Aquafaba and Sunquick Pink Guava and strawberry syrup while the use of basil added a fragrant herb aroma to the mocktail.
For the main course, the ‘XOX’ mocktail was paired with the Sunquick Blackcurrant-inspired Roasted Duck Breast. The mocktail was served warm, with its aromatic essence from the use of spices complementing the earthy flavours of the main course, delivering a good balance of flavours. This was my favourite pairing of the evening.
