Bottoms Up! A Toast to Cambodia’s Finest Flavours

In love with the fresh, vibrant flavours of Cambodian cuisine, but not sure what drink to pair with it? We have the ultimate answer: more of those incredible flavours, of course! Some people get themselves in a muddle trying to work out which wines to drink with Cambodian food. And it’s true that there are plenty of wines that pair beautifully with the fresh, herby and vibrant flavours of Cambodian Cuisine. But one of the best ways to really get the best out of your meal is to pair it up with something that’s been specifically created to reflect and complement those flavours, such as one of our Malis Signature Cocktails. One of those, the Malis Sweet & Sour combines the flavours of one of our favourite dishes, Sweet & Sour Soup, with the distinctive kick of that classic cocktail, the Mojito. Made with tamarind paste, palm sugar, sweet basil, kaffir lime and lemongrass, this delicious and refreshing rum cocktail is the perfect partner for enjoying with almost anything on our menu, but we think it’s especially good with a Green Mango and Smoked Fish Salad or the Kep Flower Crab Fried Rice. We created these cocktails to show the range and versatility of Cambodian flavours and to represent them in a fresh light. Of course, you can also simply enjoy them on their own, and there are few better spots for doing that than in the elegant grandeur of Malis in Siem Reap’s Chhatra Lounge. Drop by Malis Siem Reap at 6pm any evening for our Happy Hour, and enjoy our buy-one-get-one free. It’s a great opportunity to explore some of the other unique cocktails we’ve concocted to reflect and perfect Cambodian Cuisine’s bounty of flavour, or simply to savour on their own. Chhoul-Mouy!
