Exclusive Think Pink Cocktails at Ovolo Southside and Mojo Nomad Central
In honour of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, Ovolo Southside’s Komune and Mojo Nomad Central’s newly opened Te Quiero Mucho have launched limited edition cocktails. For each purchase of one of these cocktails during October, $10 will be donated to the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation.
The team at Komune have created Soft Kiss, $90, a fragrant pink cocktail made with Tanqueray Gin, homemade lime syrup, fresh redcurrant, basil and Peychaud’s bitters for that extra kick.
Te Quiero Mucho will serve a classic cocktail with a unique twist. The Pink Awakening ($80) is a rosy take on the ever popular margarita, featuring Cimarron tequila, Cointreau, grenadine, and topped off with a splash of lime juice.
Dr Fern’s Gin Parlour
From 1 to 31 October, Dr Fern’s Gin Parlour will be serving two special “prescriptions” to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The drinks are inspired by influential female leaders and for each one bought the bar will donate $5 to the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation.
Inspired by Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman on the UK Medical Register and the first woman to obtain a medical degree in the United States, Dr Her is a mixture of Barr Hill Gin, rhubarb and rose syrup, lemon juice and egg white.
The second drink is called Hayman’s Three Women, and is inspired by the three strongest women in Christopher Hayman’s life: his mother, his wife, and his daughter.
