Here are a selection of craft cocktails created with local flavours in mind that you can try at the Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival:
Taking inspiration from the traditional Hong Kong dessert called purple rice soup (紫米露; zi2 mai5 lou6), the Black Glutinous Rice cocktail by Ohm Café & Bar is a unique drink that fuses the rich tastes of rum with an assortment of sugary flavours commonly found in local, traditional desserts, including red bean, coconut, taro, and sweet potato. This is the perfect cocktail to ease you into the traditional Hong Kong dessert scene!
Ohm Cafe & Bar, G/F, 152 Yu Chau Street, Sham Shui Po | (+852) 9665 5259
Tong Yuen from Kuromaru by Maison Meiji perfectly encapsulates the fusion culture of Hong Kong cuisine. A cocktail fusing the tastes of ginger, muscovado sugar, and sesame with Japanese shōchū (焼酎; traditional blue-collar distilled spirit), Tong Yuen condenses the traditional Hong Kong dessert of tong yuen (湯圓; tong1 jyun4; glutinous rice balls cooked in ginger and sugar water) into a flavourful. Sip for maximum delight!
