    A new club Nebula just had its soft opening at Central Park Mall in West Jakarta yesterday (June 6th) located in the blitzmegaplex cinema complex (parking at P13). There's still a lot of fine tuning to do but its mission is to be a great place to party strictly without drugs...excepting alcohol. :P

      Isn't that the whole purpose of a mixed drink? To make it sweet so you can down the foul taste of alcohol. That's why it's rum and coke, scotch and soda, gin and tonic, etc. I think some people prefer to go easy on their taste buds and pace their alcohol consumption, so they like the sweeter drinks.

                Where are you from? (Not where do you live). You've never had the pleasure of a fine single malt whiskey?

                You had a go at rum as well.. Please get a sample of Ron zacapa XO, a 25 year old aged rum matured in the Guatemalan mountains, and tell me you need to splash coke in it...

                  I always love whiskey on the rock, enjoy the tha taste rather than mix it with coke or even green tea

                    All of my guy friends overseas. They considered it unbecoming for them to drink cocktails.

                    The problem with some people, they don't like the real taste of drink or food they have but they still want the effect, hence the sweetening ingredients.

                      In dragonfly once a colleague and I were hanging out with a group of our clients, they had a bottle of Macallan 18 on the table (my personal favourite whiskey, but runs about 3,000,000 rp a bottle in the UK, god knows how much in Indonesia) and they were mixing it with green tea

                      I thought at first what a waste, and thought it was funny. My colleague on the other hand is Scottish, and he was disgusted by it!!

                      You'd probably get beaten up if you did that in Glasgow
