Denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula? Lifting of trade sanctions against North Korea? Negotiating an end to the 1950-1953 Korean War? You can mimic the Donald Trump-Kim Jong-un summit in Singapore by discussing these geopolitical issues while savouring two “peace summit cocktails” specially created by a local bistro bar to mark the historical event on 12 June.

Escobar, located in China Square Central, has dubbed the cocktails “Trump” after the US President and “Kim” after the North Korean leader, each aptly priced at $12.60 to commemorate the special date. The launch of the drinks on Friday (1 June) comes amid a flurry of activities surrounding American and North Korean delegates ahead of the summit, including Kim Chang Son, Kim’s de facto chief of staff, who has been spotted in Fullerton Hotel in Singapore.

Patrons can also take part in the “Trump vs Kim challenge” by playing a game of scissors-paper-stone involving two players and 20 shots at $60 – 10 vodka shots on the blue side (USA) and 10 soju shots on the red side (North Korea). The loser in each round drinks a shot while the winner of the game gets an Escobar-design t-shirt.

For the thousands of delegates and reporters who are expected to be in Singapore for the summit, Escobar is laying the welcome mat for them. They can enjoy one drink on the house and a 30 per cent discount for any order of bar snacks or meal.

Stan Sri Ganesh, owner of Escobar, told Yahoo Lifestyle Singapore, “How can Singapore’s most exciting bistro bar not be involved in one of the biggest events in recent world history? I’m inviting all the media and delegates to make Escobar their home ground while in Singapore. And we will take good care of them.”

The two promotions are on from now until the day that Trump and Kim leave Singapore, said Stan.

What if the summit were called off again, as the US President did on 24 May? Escobar is fully committed to supporting the summit and will continue to offer the promotions until Trump and Kim finally meet, Stan quipped.

North Korea cocktail “Kim”: Rose Syrup, Green Grape Soju, Gordon Gin, Freshly Squeeze Lime, Berries
