The most Instagram-worthy cocktails in Hong Kong

Bars and pubs

Forty Four at Stockton

icon-location-pin Central

Stockton's latest libations are accompanied by an equally quirky menu. Each drink is inspired by a cult figure, with the Forty Four drawing inspiration from Raymond Chandler, the infamous author and boozy reprobate. The cocktail is a mix of apple brandy, apricot toasted coconut, bergamot, lemon and lime, egg white, cream and nutmeg, served inside a gorgeous, if somewhat chunky, fish vessel. #tosaygoodbyeistodiealittle

Pisang Colada at Potato Head

icon-location-pin Sai Ying Pun

Coconut woman is calling out and every day you can hear her shout 'Get your Pisang Colada!'. For those answering the call of coconut woman, head to Potato Head, for this concotion of Potato Head's spiced rum, coconut puree, fresh pineapple juice, recycled citrus syrup, lime juice and aromatic bitters is a smooth yet sour palate pleaser. Easy sipping and easy on the eye, as it's served in a whole coconut and garnished with a beautifying orchid, a pineapple leaf, mint and flavour-enhancing hibiscus salt. #fourforfive

Spamarita at Jinjuu

icon-location-pin Central

This curious cocktail may not sound the most appealing, especially if you're like us and suffer childhood Spam trauma, but thankfully Jinjuu's Spamarita is a smoky wonder, served in a Spam can. Drawing inspiration from Korea's obsession with Spam (it's popular in many recipes thanks to excess US Army stocks after the war), the cocktail uses Spam infused Ocho tequila as the base with pineapple, mezcal, agave nectar and fresh citrus and mandarin. #whamspamthankyoumaam

Smoking Gun at TokyoLima

icon-location-pin Central

This treasure box is filled with an exotic take on a negroni. The blend of Lapsang tea infused Bulldog gin, Campari, chocolate bitters and red vermouth is placed inside an ornate box and presented table side in a hail of smoke, making for a smokin' and sultry sip. #topgun

The Heisenberg at The Pontiac

icon-location-pin Central

The Heisenberg is The Pontiac's slushy homage to the real star of Breaking Bad: crystal meth. The blend of Aviation Gin, Giffards blue curacao, Martini Bianco vermouth, lemon juice, simple syrup and absinthe is combined in a slushy machine to make for a brilliantly blue and rocky ride. #iamthedanger

Restaurants

D1 and TT at Bibo

icon-location-pin Sheung Wan

This cocktail won the 2015 D1 gin competition with its creative twist on gin and tonic. Using the aforementioned gin, five secret citrus juices, homemade tonic syrup and cold Passion des Fleurs tea, the drink is served in a lightbulb vessel to be poured over skull-shaped ice. #skullduggery

Nekuta and the Venus Fly Trap at Zuma

icon-location-pin Central

Probably one of the weirdest vessels on this list, this tropical blend of coconut rum, clarified Japanese mango and yuzu is served in the carnivorous pitcher plant - a plant similar to the snapping Venus fly trap. Fortunately, this pitcher plant is probably too drunk to clamp down on your lip like it would with an unsuspecting fly. #feedmefeedmenow

Bars and pubs

KGB at Origin

icon-location-pin Central

Quite possibly Hong Kong's most Instagrammed drink, not only is the KGB served in a mini ceramic bubble bath, it comes complete with a mini rubber ducky! Japanese Kyoho grape liqueur, lemon, lime and grape juices, elderflower syrup make up the liquid of the drink, which is finished with Kyoho grape tea air bubbles on top and ‘caviar’ bubbles at the bottom. #hammerandsickle

Ron Burgundy at Back Bar

icon-location-pin Wan Chai

Inspired by the Anchorman himself, this blend of rum, burgundy syrup and perfume bitters is fittingly served in a perfume bottle with a ‘Sex Panther’ label. 60 percent of the time, the cologne works all the time – fortunately this cocktail is always a winner. #smellofdesire

Bars and pubs

Early Bird at The Envoy

icon-location-pin Central

This tweet drink is a blend of Snow Leopard vodka, pineapple juice, passionfruit puree, lemon juice, French vanilla syrup and Angostura aromatic bitters. There's also Early Bird's mate, Birds of a Feather, a blend of Talisker 10 years single malt, Ballantine's finest scotch, Dilmah blueberry and pomegranate tea, thyme syrup, grapefruit juice, blueberry puree and malt essence, both served in birdy vessels. #cashwormsoussidehowbowdah
