Go West

America’s Wild West was a real man’s world. The American Frontier was a time when men drank and caroused in saloons; when barroom brawls were settled in high-noon duels; and when the outlaw cowboy embodied all it was to be a man.

Our Favourite Old Fashioneds in Hong Kong

 

Chilled, with touches of citrus and the warmth of whiskey, the Old Fashioned is a revered classic and a bartender's go-to drop that’s the perfect concoction for Hong Kong’s temperamental springs. Even if you’re not a whiskeyphile, you should know the ins and outs of this endearing drink as well as its many modern reiterations, and the best way to start is by sipping your way through our favourite tipples.

 




Quinary

One of the city’s most creative cocktail corners, Quinary’s take on this timeless tipple includes a garnish you can snack on. Created by mixologist Antonio Lai, the Quinary Old Fashioned is made with caramel popcorn-infused rye whiskey, with a touch of cola syrup and a wafer thin strip of orange peel to off-set the sweetness. The cocktail comes with a cone of house-popped caramel popcorn on the side. Website: www.quinary.hk

 

Mott 32

It may be the classiest Chinese joint in town but Mott 32’s standalone cocktail bar also mixes a mean drink, including the Old Harbour, with Hakushu Japanese whisky and Rittenhouse Rye as a base, and chrysanthemum, goji berries, and grapefruit bitters giving an Oriental-meets-Occidental take on this beloved cocktail.

Stockton

This male-orientated speakeasy hidden away above Wyndham is home to innovative and soul-soothing drinks, including the Rhum in Fashion, a rum version of the classic tipple made with Blackwell Jamaican and Ron Zacapa Guatemalan rums, chocolate and vanilla bitters, and lime zest to add a touch of freshness to a heady blend.

Limewood

If you’re bound for the South Side, newbie eatery Limewood boasts a heady Charcoal Washed Old Fashioned made with HM King Scotch, smoky Taliskar single malt, and charred orange, the perfect grog with which to welcome the beach season in Repulse Bay.

The Woods

Also one to be innovative, The Woods on Wyndham Street serves up a Peach Old Fashioned made with Michter’s Bourbon, freshly muddled peach, peach bitters and a touch of thyme. It’s the perfect Old Fashioned for those working their way into classic whiskey cocktails.

Rummin’ Tings

Go for a Caribbean take on the classic spirit with Rummin’ Ting’s Lawd Ah Mercy, a smooth as silk blend of Plantation dark rum, Angostura bitters, and Fee Brothers chocolate and plum bitters, shaken and served on cracked ice.

Duddell’s

For a truly spectacular take on this classic drop, head to Duddell’s (yes, another ritzy Chinese spot with a great bar), where mixologist Marek Wo Vojcarcik whips up the Bullet to the Head, a great potion of Bulleit Bourbon with maple syrup and strawberry Angostura bitters, best enjoyed on the terrace.
