The Mid-Autumn Festival is traditionally a time to celebrate the year’s bountiful harvest with family, and this year, The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore presents a delectable spread of traditional and snowskin mooncakes to be shared with loved ones.
The hotel’s signature Assorted Mini Snowskin Martini mooncake collection is back with a new addition to its line-up. The new Irish Martini mooncake joins the crowd-pleasing Lycheetini flavour and brings with it a decadent mixture of espresso, Irish stout reduction, vodka, Campari and beer, all packed inside a snowskin coat.
Those partial to traditional mooncakes will delight in the baked treats that the hotel has curated this year, featuring the new white lotus seed paste mooncake infused with the familiar, healthful flavours of red date and longan.
Classic mainstays in white lotus seed paste, with or without double yolk, remain firm favourites; opt for a sampler with the four-piece Assorted Baked mooncakes set, which comprises the three varieties of baked pastries.
Durian fans can satiate their cravings with the delectably creamy Mini Snowskin ‘Mao Shan Wang’ Durian mooncakes, which demand a second helping. These local delights come encased in a blue lacquered box gilded with intricate floral motifs.
