spice road in Little India, a spice mill in a George Town shophouse, and many colorful spices in my mom’s recipes. Now, we’ve discovered “Season with Spice”!
SeasonWithSpice.com will feature all sorts of recipes from Malaysian dishes to Minnesota dishes, from curries to stir-fry, ice creams to cocktails. All sharing one thing in common – the wonderful flavor of spices. So put down your salt shaker and head over to Season with Spice!
To kick off Season with Spice, and to celebrate, we invented a cocktail. Not just any cocktail, but an original Penang cocktail. If Singapore can have the “Sling”, Penang can have its “Back of the Island”.
While developers have recently moved into the area, the quieter west side of the island is still mainly jungle, organic farms, and tropical fruit orchards. The main town, and sometimes the name used to refer to the entire west side of the island, is called Balik Pulau - a Malay term which literally means “Back of the Island”. The perfect name for a tropical spice drink.
For this recipe, and many more to come, our kitchen is always open at Season with Spice!
