Drink stops for the thirsty and top tipples this month
It may be called Junior and comes with just
10 seats, but this ‘pocket’ bar by the folks behind
28 Hong Kong Street has big ideas. Conceived as a platform to showcase artisanal spirits, Junior serves up a different theme—in its cocktails, food and décor — every six months, much like an art gallery. From now till 31 January 2018, it pays homage to the craft and tradition of authentic agave spirits.
Expect cocktails like Raicilla When I See Ya ($22), balancing the smoky, grassy notes of La Venenosa Raicilla Costa de Jalisco with the tangy flavours of Junior’s homemade passionfruit syrup. Or enjoy tasting flights like the Lost Spirits ($46)—including La Venenosa Sierra de Occidental, Los Danzantes Pechuga, Sotol La Higuera and various small bites such as jicama seasoned with tajin, a chilli and lime powder seasoning; chilli bak kwa served with parmesan; and orange slices paired with sel de gusano, an intriguing salt made from worms.
