Mix and Muddle
Here’s your chance to elevate your cocktail game – and with tips from a pro, no less! The Refinery has invited acclaimed mixologist Antonio Lai to help you master the art of cocktail mixing in two interactive masterclasses on 4 and 18 June.
Renowned for his comprehensive Multisensory Mixology (MM) concept, a drinking experience that engages all five senses, Lai co-founded some of Hong Kong’s trendiest bars, including Quinary, Room 309 and Draft Land. At the masterclasses, he’ll share two recipes created exclusively for The Refinery’s latest dining experience.
Both created based on the Hennessy VSOP cognac, these cocktails feature refreshing ingredients to help you beat the summer heat. Hennessy Gold Fashioned is a blend of monk fruit syrup and Angostura bitters, with garnishes of orange peel and edible gold leaf for a hint of decadence. Hennessy Highball mixes daffodil tea cordial and Thai soda water, a combination that pairs well with Chef Jacky’s Shunde menu. Moët Hennessy Diageo bar tools are provided at the classes so you can craft your drinks like a pro!
Six readers of The Mag from the Taikoo Place office community can sign up for the masterclass on 18 June, with the option to also book a dinner at The Refinery afterwards. Register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org on or before 11 June and mention “The Mag Readers”. First-come, first-served.
