Hong Kong is definitely a work hard, play hard kind of city, which is probably why no one blinks an eye at hosting Oktoberfest, Beertopia, and Gintober in the same month. Unlike the first two, however, Gintober (sponsored by D1 London Gin) is happening throughout the month. That’s right - if you can use Instagram, you can drink for free. Every single night.
To join the club, all you have to do is check in to the bar and post a photo to Instagram with the hashtag #D1Gintober. You’ll get one promotional D1 cocktail for free and automatically be entered to win a yearlong free supply of D1 London Gin and tonic.
Try the Blissful Grace cocktail at Topiary, made with calamansi juice, ginseng, suze, and honey foam. It’s good enough to make you feel like a million bucks, especially since you didn’t spend any money on it.
If you have a sweet tooth that just won’t quit, the D’punch at Boujis is just for you. Orange and lemon sherbet, jasmine green tea, pineapple, and champagne syrup - they may as well serve it in a bowl.
Feeling under the weather? Arena is pouring a cocktail called Health Land, featuring Chinese hawthorn juice, a digestive aid, and homemade siraitia grosvenorii syrup, which is traditionally used to treat inflammation.
