Ward off the winter chill with piquant cocktails inspired by Japanese spices at Up & Above Bar at The Okura Prestige Bangkok.
New concoctions include the Gobo-Rice Gin & Tonic, a heady mix of Roku Japanese craft gin infused with nutritious burdock-like gobo root, premium Born sake with ginsen, Japanese rice syrup, fresh yuzu juice and tonic water. Alternatively try the mixologists’ take on a classic with the Japanese Whisky Sour, imbued with the wonderful honey and vanilla aromas of Suntory Kakubin Yellow Japanese whisky, pickled ginger, fresh lemon and Japanese cucumber, egg white and syrup. Also excellent as a winter-spring pick-me-up is the Japanese Martini, comprising premium sake infused with Japanese sancho pepper, lime and apple juice, and orgeat almond syrup. Finally, if you prefer something non-alcoholic you can enjoy the innovative Tokyo Mule mocktail, a refreshing blend of strawberry puree, chamomile tea, fresh mint leaves and a splash of ginger beer. Wonderfully refreshing but also delightfully warming, these are beverages best enjoyed during the cool months.
Japanese spice-infused cocktails are available daily from 1 January to 31 March 2021, 12:00 to 24:00, at Up & Above Bar. Prices start at Baht 350++ for cocktails and Baht 290++ for mocktail.
