I’v got a fun review for you at the ever posh Hakkasan.
Hakkasan Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha are sharing a special cocktail flight for the month of August in celebration of Hakkasan’s newest location in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
For the month of August Hakkasan Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha will be featuring The Evolution of Ling Ling with a limited edition flight of three special cocktails each specially paired with one piece of signature Hakkasan dim sum.
Ling Ling explores Hakkasan’s cuisine in an innovative way with a specially created drinks pairing menu.
Now what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t give you a peak of this pairing when I stopped by Hakkasan Dubai for a taste?
Take a seat and grab a drink.
The first cocktail in the flight of three is the Bitter Fortune, which forms the base of the following two cocktails. Bitter Fortune features Tanqueray, Aperol, rhubarb liqueur, pink grapefruit, lime and peach bitters.
It has the taste of your familiar sweet fresh cocktail. A perfect cocktail for anyone who prefers the classics.
Which is a nice way to start the flight.
Paired with a venison puff which I will tell you now was my favorite of the three foods. A perfect pastry with a fluffy flakey buttery exterior with a sweet and savory venison filling.
The second cocktail is the Chilli Coupette.
This is not your average cocktail.
I will cut right to it though and say this was my favorite of the three. Sweet but with a real kick of spice that makes this a truly unique but very enjoyable drink.
This was paired with a sesame prawn toast which presented a much more mild taste to avoid competition with its feisty cocktail partner.
The third and final cocktail is the Golden Mare.
Made of a blend of fresh herbs and spices this is probably unlike any cocktail you have tasted before.
This was by far the most unique of the three, making it a memorable ending to the flight.
Paired with the recognisable taste of a duck spring role aided with the sweet kick of a thick plumb sauce I can say the whole experiences ended on a very satisfied note.
Remember this experience is only for the month of August so be sure to give it a try while you can.
I mean for 120 AED per person how can you say no?
