Can't-miss new drinks at Hong Kong's room 3
Let's kick things off with Ananas Epicé – a pineapple-infused party in a glass that's perfect for beating the Hong Kong heat. This juicy and refreshing summer fruit concoction brings a burst of freshness that'll keep you coming back for more.

It's like a vacation for your taste buds – imagine sun, sand and spice all in one refreshing sip.
Summertime in Hong Kong calls for epic food adventures, and Cheung Chau Island is the go-to spot for local specialties like giant fish balls and mouthwatering mango mochi.
Speaking of mango goodness, room 3's in-house mixologists have crafted a stunning golden-hued beauty inspired by the fresh and chewy dessert. Picture this – mango-flavored Plantation Rum, fermented rice wine and mango curd coming together to create a delightful ode. But that's not all – a milky, salted cream cheese foam tops it off, giving you a taste of heaven, which explains the name.
If you crave a refreshing twist, the Minty Highball is the answer. Celebrating Hong Kong's love for Chinese preserved plums, this mix of housemade dry gin, dry sherry, smoked plums, mint leaves and fennel creates a rare and unique flavor that cools you down in the heat. A tonic water spritz tops things off with a bubbly finish.
But here's the real treat – a cocktail that blurs the lines between drink and dessert. Inspired by a beloved dessert, sweet potato and ginger soup, this creative blend of Arquitecto tequila and Okar Tropic – a distillation of Gewurztraminer and Moscato wine with orange and tamarind – with lemon verbena, ginger and sweet potato is a burst of flavors. It even comes with a dried sweet potato morsel.
Don't forget the tapas ...
Of course, drinks with friends call for yummy snacks on the side. room 3 has you covered with its Japanese tapas menu. Grilled to perfection, each yakitori takes you on a culinary journey to Japan. Grilled Cheese Fish Cake, Takoyaki, Grilled Tuna Jaw and Japanese Crab Meat with Dried Cod Crackers – these delectable bites are perfect for sharing while you sip your way through the new cocktail offerings.
