Popular garden rooftop bar, Red Sugar, releases their new cocktail menu, Our Little Time, inspired by the eight most significant Hong Kong industries from the 60s to the 80s. The list comprises eleven fun-serve cocktails created by mixologist Simon Kong. Each cocktail is presented in a creative serve that satiates not only your thirst but also your Instagram feed with its elaborate picture-worthy presentation and garnishes. Our favourite on the menu is A Golden Age, a reinterpreted version of the classic Bee's Knees using Sichuan green pepper-infused gin, lychee liqueur, tomato water, lemon juice, honey, topped with dried squid shreds, which doubles as a great snack while sipping on the citrus-spicy concoction.
