Crafted with full-flared personalisation, KODA's home-delivery bespoke and signature cocktails from this speakeasy bar caught our eye for Manual Pick, a series where we highlight items we love and desire that range from remarkably banal to mucho fancy.

When you sit at a bar and ask the bartender to make a drink, they aim to concoct the perfect one to match your chemistry. It’s a tradition in the mixology and bartending business to enthrall patrons with libations and upgrade the experience from lacklustre to prime by personalising the ordeal. But as we shift gears to adopt new ways of getting our essentials, cocktail home-delivery service is the bait we could be waiting for.

Perhaps never comparable to sipping on a drink in a bar lounge, yet KODA, a speakeasy in Jakarta, raised the bar for beautifully concocted cocktails to enjoy at home. Every drink comes from the good hands of a renowned mixologist and bartender Yutaka Nakashima. Go bold with the no-fuss signatures or submit yourself to bespoke concoctions of customisable requests: a base to start with, a taste you seek, a style to down, and make it strong or weak to a preference. Upon delivery, your wish will be in a bottle, complete with serving tips.

Additionally, we covet the details. Clear, crisp distilled water ice cubes will accompany the orders. With everything in one box and ready to serve, one needs only a cocktail glass to pour in the elixir over ice cube for a drink to sip on a casual yet tasteful afternoon at home. Who says chemistry can’t be created from a distance? That’s a bartender’s expertise and KODA’s recipe to bring an all-out personalised bar experience with none the hassle for patrons who miss the experience.
