If you’re one who wonders why people are crazy over bubble tea, you’re not alone: I myself wonder why people would spend $5 on a cup of milk tea with tapioca pearls when they can easily buy a pack of cai png with a drink for the same amount of money.
But the young wise people in the office disagree: one mentioned that it’s the second best invention in the world (the first is Instagram), and another one said that life without bubble tea is like life without Internet.
With their obsession over the calorie-filled Instagram-worthy drink, they even made a video about bubble tea (and went crazily happy when they realized they’d have free bubble tea on the day they did the filming):
Me? I prefer the good old vodka. Gin’s good as well. Nothing beats a hard liquor after a long day at work.
Then my colleague sent me this:
Okay, just another bubble tea—
Wait. Vodka…with bubble tea?
That’s like a drink that’ll attract both my young colleagues and the old me.
Alcoholic Bubble Tea Series
If you think you’ve seen it all, you’re wrong.
Started by Miss Taiwan 2016, the Taiwanese had gone all out to craft out the best-est bubble tea by trying more than 2,000 cups of milk tea.
The relatively new store, Cotton Dreams, opened on 1 March 2018 and is popular primarily for its Cotton Candy Milk Tea—a cup of regular bubble tea topped with large cotton candy for the added calories an Instagram-worthy experience.
But beyond the Instagram-worthy drinks and its Instagram-worthy seats is its alcoholic bubble tea, perfect for people who like to down a cocktail after every meal.
At $11.90, it’s obviously more expensive than the regular bubble teas and that’s understandable because we’re talking about high-SES liquor like Vodka, Gin or Malibu.
Located at *SCAPE, the shop also sells many other Instagram-worthy products like Cotton Candy Bouquet…
…bubble tea bag (?!?!)…
…and many more.
Check them out here:
*SCAPE Singapore, 2 Orchard Link, #02-18D, Singapore 237978
As you can see from the flyer, there’s an ongoing promotion whereby you’ll get a cup of regular bubble tea for free when you buy an alcoholic bubble tea. That’s like $11.90 for two cups of bubble tea, with one being alcoholic: damn worth it, man.
First Store to Offer Alcoholic Bubble Tea in Singapore?
Now, here’s a question: Cotton Dreams might be the first store in Singapore to bring in cotton candy for its bubble tea, but are they also the first store to have alcoholic bubble tea?
The honour actually goes to The Local Box, which first introduced its alcoholic bubble tea two months before Cotton Dreams came into the picture. However, the Local Box’s primary products are their food, though their drinks are interesting, too. I mean, Alcoholic Milo Dinosaur Rum Bubble Tea?
I bet my boss’s car that in the next few months, we’re going to see even more bubble tea flavours that we’ve never thought possible.
Nasi Lemak Bubble Tea, perhaps?
