Treat yourself with The Gunpowder cocktail while feeling refreshed and energized onto the Jakarta’s welcoming monument view. One cannot simply resist the taste of Rooh Afza, better known as refresher of the soul or squash mixed with forest berry tea-infused gin, rose essence and multiple aromatic botanicals.
