W Maldives has shared details of the second instalment of its ‘What She Shakes’ series, with Laura Prabowo the latest guest mixologist to take her spot behind the resort’s bar.

During her stint at W Maldives, Prabowo will present a collection of four cocktails that depict her career journey. The first will be the classic concoction that inspired her to become the mixologist she is today, while the second is her residency cocktail, inspired by one of Penicillin’s – the bar of which she is co-founder and Managing Director – signature drinks. The third cocktail, Her Legacy, has been developed in collaboration with the resort, combining Prabowo’s signature style with W’s cocktail culture. The new cocktail will remain on the menu at W Maldives’ SIP Bar for a limited time even after the mixologist departs.

“We are thrilled to have Laura Prabowo as the featured mixologist for the second series of What She Shakes. Her talent and creativity are an impeccable fit for this program, and we look forward to providing our guests with an inspiring and meaningful experience,” says Idu Ribeiro, General Manager of W Maldives. “Here at our luxury playground, we are always finding ways to keep elevating our Beverage & Food offerings through unique activations. What She Shakes presents an opportunity for us to amplify our cocktail culture while at the same time showcasing the amazing female talent behind the great bars from all over the world.”

Laura Prabowo comments: “I’m thrilled to be visiting the Maldives, and also be able to truly imbibe the spirit of the dream destination into some of my creations and leave a legacy at W Maldives for everyone to sample. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me, and I hope that sipping these carefully curated cocktails will be as inspiring an experience for all the guests as it has for me.”

The What She Shakes program at W Maldives aims to showcase the work of female mixologists, whilst also offering guests the opportunity to indulge in a range of new cocktails.
