Hong Kong’s heritage captured in cocktails

11th January, 2017 by Lucy Jenkins

From Mr Wu’s famous Hot Sauce to the verdant peace of the New Territories,  the entrepreneurial, restless spirit of Hong Kong has been encapsulated in a series of cocktails created by the InterContinental Hotel.

The InterContinental’s new #852tails cocktail range pays tribute to Hong Kong’s rather tumultuous history and mixed heritage – from over 100 years of British rule to being handed back to China in 1997 – and its obsession with money and idiosyncratic eating rituals.

Comprising the auspicious number of eight cocktails and five mocktails, the range tips its hat to various famous Hong Kong landmarks, characters and sweet snacks, including the staple of afternoon tea: Bo Lo Bau or pineapple bun.
