The internationally acclaimed, Aqua Restaurant Group, and the world’s biggest cocktail competition, World Class™, have joined forces to present some of summer’s finest cocktail-drinking experiences, featuring three of the world’s best bartenders including World Class™ Bartender of the Year, David Rios.A series of exclusive menus, signature serves and finest bespoke glassware will be available to savour at aqua.
Launched from May and available through to June at aqua, World Class™ 2013 champion and ‘master of the martini’ David Rios presents his curated Martini Menu with TANQUERAY NO. TEN. Located at One Peking and known for its dazzling views of Hong Kong harbour alongside classy interiors, aqua restaurant and the trendy night spot aqua spirit will showcase four new cocktails as part of its existing drinks menu experience.
The selection will include Rios’ TANQUERAY NO. TEN signature cocktail entitled ‘Smell’ which is a creative and aromatic take on the martini, made using dry-ice lavender. This is a tribute to the London fog and home of the legendary St. Giles gin district. The cocktail is created using TANQUERAY NO. TEN, dry vermouth, bianco vermouth, lime bitters and twist of lime, served in a lavender fog.

Up next is the ‘Eastern Martini’ which pays homage to the enjoyment of Sherry by expatriates in Hong Kong in bygone years. Sherry has been recently rediscovered in cocktails and this beautiful drink combines its richness with the spice of gin and fruit of the Orient. Guests can sip on the delicate grouping of TANQUERAY NO. TEN, manzanilla sherry, lychee liqueur, lime twist, olive and almonds.
Another Asian inspired drink on the menu is the ‘SAKE’ cocktail. Again, using TANQUERAY NO. TEN, sake, ginger liqueur with a twist of pink grapefruit, this is inspired by Asia and born at Gleneagles, not far from the modern day home of the Tanqueray distillery, this drink delights the palette with the fresh grapefruit drawing out the taste buds.
In addition, throughout July and September, you can expect more of the same World Class™ calibre to grace the venues of Aqua Restaurant Group, promising to showcase more unique blends, flavours and expertise – watch this space!
