Sam Jeveons


 City of Dreams Manila brings back renowned Hong Kong-based bartender and mixologist Sam Jeveons for “A Master Class” at Crystal Lounge on May 25, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. and “A Night of Cocktails” at CenterPlay on May 26 and 27, from 8 p.m. to 12 mn.

Jeveons, the creator of the couture cocktails at the luxury integrated resort, specifically in Crystal Lounge, CenterPlay and Red Ginger, returns to the property to host the two interactive cocktail events.

At the “Mixology Master Class,” Jeveons will talk about the latest trends in craft cocktails around the world, and conjure dramatic signature cocktails and new creations with fascinating and sophisticated style that will soon be part of the beverage menu of Crystal Lounge.

Jeveons will welcome the Master Class attendees with Blood & Sand (a combination of Jameson Irish Whisky, Mancino Rosso Vermouth, Cherry Heering, Blood Orange and Laphroaig Islay Mist) prior to his demonstration of the artful alchemy of designer drinks which include: Crystal Lounge’s signature cocktail, The Crystal Daiquiri (a secret recipe of rare and tropical rums, shaken); Crystal Martini (a mix of Vodka, gin, Mancino Secco vermouth, virgin coconut oil, citrus oil and oyster leaf); Players Negroni (a blend of Gin, Mancino Rosso & Secco vermouth, Cherry Heering, Aperol, Campari and coffee); and Dealer’s Choice (a mixture of Havana Club rum, Aperol, blood orange, lime and mint Champagne.) Canapes prepared by the resort’s chefs will complement the bespoke cocktails.

A rare interaction with the famed mixologist awaits cocktail connoisseurs and neophyte drinkers at CenterPlay, in two evenings of liquid enlightenment in “A Night of Cocktails”. While they watch local live band entertainment amid the bustling energy of the main gaming floor, Jeveons will dazzle and take cocktail lovers to an enlivening journey via a curated selection of innovative cocktails.

The custom-designed tipples and finely crafted cocktails that will be served are: classics with a twist Rye Tai (a mix of rye whiskey, orange curacao, orgeat syrup, lime and, Don Papa 10) and Aviation (a mixture of gin, ginger, apple, crème de violet and lemon); the stunning new creation Prescription Smash (a blend of Bulleit bourbon, banana, lime, sage, salt and soda); and lady luck’s favorites Queen of Diamonds (a combination of vodka, creme de mure, crème de framboise, raspberry, lemon and champagne); and Players Negroni.

This is Jeveon’s third visit at the luxury integrated resort. Two years ago he co-hosted an innovative cocktail and dinner pairing at The Tasting Room, capped by a cocktail showcase at CenterPlay.

With a career spanning 15 years, Jeveons rose from the ranks to become general manager and beverage director at some of London’s and Hong Kong’s most prestigious hotels, members clubs and bars. He is the founder of Old Street Group, Bar & Brand Specialists. In his 10 years in Asia, Sam has worked in nine Asian countries, training thousands of bartenders, writing cocktail menus and brand creations for hundreds of bars.
