Some things in life are just more fun when you get to share them with your nearest and dearest, and that can definitely be said for these giant cocktails. So grab your buddies, order one of these bad boys, and go wild. Just be careful not to fall in!

King Mojito

Who doesn’t love a good mojito? At Havana, you can go absolutely ham with everyone’s favourite minty beverage. Served in a mammoth glass, your party will have a whole three and a half litres of the King Mojito ($600) to work through—more than enough to get you properly buzzed for the long night ahead.

We know someone who downed this with only one other friend (spoiler: it got really messy), but sharing is caring so we recommend grabbing a couple more mates to do this drink with. It’s advertised to serve four to six people. Bottoms up!

Havana, 4/F, The Plaza, 21 D’Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central | (+852) 2851 4880

Caribbean Lagoon

If you’re one of those people who aren’t truly happy unless you’re lounging around in the tropics, here’s something to remind you of the sun and sea that will tide you through till your next holiday. This flaming cocktail—it literally comes to your table on fire—is a potent mix of Diplomatico Planas rum, coconut liqueur, and Blue Curacao, with coconut milk, pineapple, guava, and lemon juices.

The Caribbean Lagoon ($600) is fruity and tangy, with creamy notes from the coconut at the same time, and will transport you straight to a beachside paradise. Grab two to four pals to enjoy responsibly!

The Fishbowl

We can’t have a giant cocktails round-up without including the token Fishbowl ($488). Good for four to six people to indulge, choose from six blindingly colourful frozen margaritas with equally colourful names, and sink your gills into a two-plus-litre bowl of brain-freezing goodness.

Sample all the colours of the rainbow with The Suzy Wong, Blue Balls, The Pink Taco, The Wan Chai Red Light, Green Monster, or the Spunky Monkey. Each bowl is made with Cuervo Tequila and triple sec, and topped with signature fish candies. Time to dive right in!

Here are some drinks to keep you warm in cool weather:

Champagne Canoe

Here’s your chance to (literally) push the boat out with your partying. Wahtiki does their sharing cocktails in a cute canoe that comes with a mix of rums, liqueur, and tropical fresh fruits.

The two-person sharer ($1,280) is topped with half a bottle of champagne, the four to six portion ($4,280) contains a bottle of magnum champagne, while the eight to 10 party size ($8,280) comes with two full bottles of magnum champagne. Just don’t blame us for any ensuing craziness that comes after!

Wahtiki, 3/F, Seabird House, 22–28 Wyndham Street, Central | (+852) 2793 0308

Around The World

We wrap up the list with this absolute monster of a cocktail! It definitely won’t take you and your friends 80 days to finish this beautifully imaginative creation, aptly named Around the World ($1,888)—and priced like a budget short-haul flight, too.

The combination of (literally) too many rums to mention, guava, pineapple, and grapefruit juices, cinnamon, vanilla, and orgeat syrup is already enticing enough, but have we mentioned that it’s then topped with a whole bottle of Taittinger Brut Champagne? You’ll feel on top of the world by the time you reach the bottom. Let’s drink to a great night out!
