For those who need a daily dose of caffeine, order the Café Con Leche, a concoction of espresso and vanilla liqueur specially concocted for Singapore Cocktail Week. Smooth and sweet with a kick of caffeine, Café Con Leche will satisfy all coffee lovers.

Catalan National Day ($14) at Catalunya

Another highlight on Catalunya’s Singapore Cocktail Week’s menu is the Catalan National Day, a two-tier cocktail distinctly separated into colors of red and yellow. Concocted with tequila, hazelnut liqueur, grapefruit juice and orange juice, the Catalan National Day is not only instagram-worthy but packs a punch as well.

La Boqueria Market ($14) at Catalunya

Last but certainly not least, how can we not have Sangria on this experiential journey through Spain? Named after the famous La Boqueria Market in Barcelona, the Sangria is deceptively harmless and easy to drink. Fruity and refreshing, this is one cocktail we could (and would) drink all night long.
