Flower cocktail menu inspired by ‘The City of Flowers’ launched in Guangzhou

Guangzhou, the City of Flowers enjoys fresh blooms year-round which has given rise to its Chinese nickname “Huacheng”. Inspired by The City of Flowers, Tian Bar has created a new standard in hand-crafted cocktails, each of the 15 new cocktail creations, including 3 mocktails, featuring an exotic blend of flower-themed ingredients.

Head Bartender Antonio, in collaboration with Hope & Sesame – the No. 36 of Best 50 Asian Bars, has created this flower-centric cocktail menu 2.0, which will take you on a multi-sensory journey of fusion flavors and visual indulgence. “In this second edition of the “flower” menu, we aim to explore various techniques while extracting our ingredients from flowers. Let it be tinctures, bitters, infusion or fragrances – the natural beauty and elegance of flowers brings us joy and pleasure, which heightens the cocktail experience,” Antonio explains.

Osmanthus, a very popular cocktail, in the previous Flower Menu, remains in the 2.0 Menu. Antonio has created a method to extract the taste and aroma from the flowers. He mixes the Monkey 47 Gin with Osmanthus flowers, peach liqueur, Oolong tea. He then clarifies the mixture with yoghurt in order to create a soft and creamy flavor. The purple-colored mixed liquid is filled in a distinctively shaped glass. The highlight from the Floral selection is Violette, a floral Martini made with a blend of Rooibos tea, distilled vodka, lavender bitters Homemade Violette Liqueur, and Mancino Secco Vermouth.
