Bar: Liquid Lounge

Bartender: Elsa Yang
Cocktail: Golden Melon
Liquid Lounge has been a lasting success among Taichung's lounge bars, with a suitably swanky atmosphere and a good mix of lounge/chill-out/chill house music. The drinks are also a draw, thanks to the skills of head bartender Elsa Yang, who can be found mixing up a wide range alcoholic concoctions on any given night.
Elsa, who has about five years of experience that includes stints at In House and Bobo, this month introduces us to a cocktail that is unique to Liquid Lounge and was invented there by one of her bartending predecessors, Jack. The Golden Melon is an attractive-looking drink with tropical coconut and melon flavors, together with a medium-sized alcoholic punch that makes it slightly more appealing for male patrons, says Elsa.
