Sha Tsui. Barcelona-chic bar The Op­ti­mist jumps on the Hal­loween band­wagon with its new­est Ara­bian Nights cock­tail, in­spired by none other than Aladdin, the bar man­ager’s fa­vorite Dis­ney car­toon. The drink takes the form of a “magic lamp” com­plete with smoke pour­ing from the spout, while the cock­tail it­self is based around Yza­guirre red ver­mouth laced with a pinch of burnt rose­mary and hot pep­per sauce.
