Just in time for that cold time of year in Hong Kong, The Envoy and Quinary launch their new Winter Cocktail menu options. We have not had a chance to try any of them yet, but the Roaming Blue (HK$138) sounds like something that we would order that includes : Ginger slow-cooked gin, reduction of port wine & cinnamon, applesauce, lemon juice, egg white and blossom honey!
Find the full list of these cocktails, descriptions and pricing below:
Adventures in Kola - $128
Ballantine’s Finest scotch whisky, caramel & butterscotch mix, Cointreau, Domaine de Canton, clove & star anise syrup, lemon juice, topped with a splash of Coca-Cola, garnished with Coca-Cola gummies.
Our fascination with Coca-Cola gummies brought into adulthood. Who says you can’t grow up and still be an adventurous kid at heart?
Elephant’s Tea Party (for two, as seen in the photo above) - $248
Chai tea slow-cooked Beefeater gin, Falernum, lemon juice, lime juice, orgeat syrup. Finished with a spray of cardamom & fenugreek tincture.

Roaming Blue - $138
Ginger slow-cooked gin, reduction of port wine & cinnamon, applesauce, lemon juice, egg white and blossom honey.

Ruby Woo - $128
Reposado tequila, mezcal, ruby port, cranberry & coffee cordial, balsamic vinegar and a spritz of coffee essence.

Ships In The Night - $148
Havana 7 year rum, Earl Grey & red apple syrup, Aperol, Dr. Adam Elmegirab’s Teapot bitters, bourbon barrel smoke.
“Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing…” In such a transient city like Hong Kong, treasure the ones we meet, even if for a short period of time. Who knows if we might see each other again, or not?
Blue Bells (complimentary, served on Christmas + New Year’s Eve only)
Bacardi Carta Blanca, Peach Purée, Monin peach syrup, Monin Blue Curaçao, lemon juice, simple syrup, a splash of champagne.
