Anything bubbly automatically screams Instagram-worth to us, so it's no wonder Quinary's bestseller Earl Grey Caviar Martini is on this list. The highly recommended cocktail is the perfect balance between sweet and sour, blending red apple juice, lime juice, and elderflower cordial topped with Earl Grey caviar and Early Grey tea air bubbles for its foamy decor.

Toyen at Dear Lily

Inspired by the works of Czech avant-garde artist Toyen, this photogenic cocktail blends together vodka, bergamot liqueur, coconut syrup, fresh lime juice, egg white, and orange bitter. Shaken and garnished with blue sparkles, not only is the drink worth some intricate table placement for the 'gram, but your surroundings at Dear Lily are equally as jaw-dropping too.

Cleverly served from a coffee siphon, Dusk to Dawn is a gin-based cocktail infused with jasmine and ginger syrup, re-distilled oolong tea, yellow chartreuse, goji liqueur, citric acid, apple juice, elderflower syrup, and cold brew butterfly pea tea. This adorable purple cocktail is almost too pretty to drink – but definitely not too pretty for Instagram.

KGB at Origin

Bars and pubs Cocktail bars Central

Quite possibly Hong Kong’s most Instagrammed drink, not only does the KGB come served in a miniature bathtub, it comes complete with a little rubber ducky! It’s essentially a martini but made with Japanese Kyoho grape liqueur, lemon, lime and grape juices, and elderflower syrup. It comes finished with Kyoho grape tea air bubbles on top and ‘caviar’ bubbles at the bottom.

This treasure box is filled with an exotic take on a negroni. Housed inside is a blend of gin infused with lapsang tea, Campari, chocolate bitters, and red vermouth. The ornate box comes presented tableside in a curtain of smoke, making for a smokin’ and sultry sip. This is one top gun.

This bowl of booze is served in half a globe and is good for eight to 12 people to share.

Another flamboyant tiki drink that should get plenty of likes is this fruity libation inspired by a Hawaiian deity. It throws together dark rum, coconut rum, a special Mikey Colada mix, mango and passion mixed purée, and orgeat syrup. It packs a punch, and did we mention that it’s served in a whole pineapple too?
