Agung Prabowo shares his thoughts on what makes a good bartender great, the hallmarks of a top bar, and the trends coming down the pipeline in 2020.
MONIN, the world’s number one selling syrup brand, is proud to announce its partnership with Agung Prabowo after his Hong Kong Bar recently ranked #1 in the 2019 Asia’s 50 Best Bars list. MONIN will bring Prabowo for Sydney Bar Week as a part of their “Bartending as an Art” series featuring world class bartenders.
“This year’s theme Mix Your Origins challenged young bartenders to let their creativity loose with native ingredients, local spirits and MONIN’s versatile and natural flavours,” said Saskia Armée, Brand Manager at Stuart Alexander & Co.
Ahead of his masterclass for MONIN, we fired through a few questions to the man himself to get his take on his bar, High Five, and what makes a good bartender great.
This Gimlet recipe makes a great drink, and a big part of that is MONIN’s Lime Juice Cordial — made with 50 per cent juice (a mix of both lime and some lemon) and made, as with all Monin’s sweet stuff, with real cane sugar. It’s got some great, juicy acidity balanced with sweetness.
