Ready to shake it up at bartending competition

Tonight, six bartenders from the region - rising cocktail stars all - will take over four bars in Singapore.
They are in town for the Diageo Reserve World Class' South-east Asian finals and Bar Show 2014, a prestigious bartending competition happening today and tomorrow. And they want to make you drinks.
Some of the show-stopping concoctions up their sleeves: a Cosmopolitan topped with cotton candy, a twist on the Moscow Mule involving gula melaka and coffee, and a drink inspired by Thai mango sticky rice. Each bartender will work a three-hour guest bar shift at a local bar, from 9pm to midnight.
Indonesia's Aldi Upay will man the bar at Ah Sam's Cold Drink Stall in Boat Quay. Thailand's Nath Arj-Han has specially prepared three cocktails for his shift at cocktail bar L'Aiglon in Neil Road.
