The Lion City Tiki is a tropical style cocktail that pays homage to the Merlion from Singapore’s founding myth; the legend of a prince called Sang Nila Utama, who came across an island after surviving a shipwreck, where he encountered a lion. Believing this to be an auspicious sign, he decided to build a settlement called ‘Singa-Pura’, which means ‘Lion City’ in Sanskrit, where ‘Singa’ means Lion, and ‘Pura’ means City.
The design of the fish in the Merlion alludes to the idea of Singapore’s beginnings as a fishing village. In consideration of Singapore as an island city with huge emphasis on maritime trade, the Lion City Tiki was also designed Tiki style; refreshing cocktails commonly consumed by the beach that is made from rum, spice, and fresh fruit juice.
