SIGNATURE YEAR OF THE FIRE MONKEY COCKTAIL FOR 2016

“Each ingredient from the “Silk Journey” is inspired by Asian Culture with a bold red color representing the luckiest color for the Chinese New Year. This signature drink combines ingredients with great significance in Chinese culture while integrating popular ingredients in Western culture such as ginger beer. Pomegranates symbolize large families and health while mandarins are one of the luckiest fruits for the year. Lastly, Oolong Tea is a New Year’s Day staple for well wishes passed on by generation to generation. It’s drank by the eldest family member first, then onto the next eldest, and so forth.” – Bombay Sapphire North American Brand Ambassador Gary Hayward

Take a look at a few of our favorite cocktails for you to try at home!
