The Won­der­land ($198), of which only six are avail­able per day. It blends rum, mi­dori, el­der­flower syrup, mint and pineap­ple juice to­gether for what tastes like a lighter ver­sion of a mo­jito, with­out the over­whelm­ing grassi­ness of mint leaves. It’s cov­ered in a web of spun sugar and gold leaf, and topped with a meringue mush­room. The Be­fore Sun­set ($128) was our fa­vorite: very drink­able and bal­anced, and not too sweet, made with Earl Grey-in­fused gin, Earl Grey tea, ap­ple juice and scented with home­made os­man­thus syrup, then topped with rose petals. If dessert cock­tails aren’t up your al­ley, don’t fret: clas­sic cock­tails and a range of mar­ti­nis round out the drinks list, and there’s also a great se­lec­tion of wines as well.

Given the sizes of Hongkongers’ dessert stom­achs, Jerry Maguire is bound to be pop­u­lar. But those with­out a sweet tooth will also be en­ter­tained, de­vour­ing shar­ing plates of snacks like the apri­cot-glazed, gy­oza-stuffed chicken wings ($98) or the Sour Ap­ple ($88), a puck­ery-sour sum­mer dish of gin­ger and ap­ple granita with straw­berry foam. Jerry Maguire? You had us at hello.
