Top Six Summer Cocktails

 

Summer Antidotes

It’s that time of the year again to hydrate yourself with loads of liquids. These breezy summer-themed cocktails by some of the acclaimed bars in Hong Kong would be the perfect elixir to get you through the sizzling summer months in vogue.


 

Decked out in blue-hued décor, the Blue Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong promises to calm the summer heat with an eclectic menu of classic cocktails with modern twists. Fans of Peruvian pisco sours should try the G&P (Grapes and Pisco), a playful reinterpretation of the classic South American concoction. Lightly-pressed fresh grapes are mixed with fresh lime, St Germain elderflower liqueur, Campo de Encanto Acholado Pisco, and East Imperial tonic water to create the ultimate summer cooler. Lobby level, Four Season Hotel Hong Kong, 8 Finance Street, Central; www.fourseasons.com/hongkong

Since its opening atop the California Tower last August, Cé La Vi has become a hot nightspot in Lan Kwai Fong frequented by the city’s glitterati. While lounging by the bar’s very own jacuzzi with your new-found friends and soaking in the amazing cityscape, further shake off the heat by taking a sip of the Signature Sangria, a refreshing mix of mangos, apricots, oranges and blueberries steeped in yuzu juice, plum wine and brandy, mixing with your own choice of red, white, rosé or sparkling wine. 25/F, California Tower, 32 D’Aguilar Street, Central; http://hk.celavi.com

Boasting an extensive al fresco terrace overlooking the vibrant harbour, this sleek rooftop lounge bar has a light and crisp cocktail that can help you cool down in no time.
