With the temperatures continuing to soar, if you’re looking for a way to cool down, head down to Armani/Privé to check out the new Rooftop Mirage cocktail collection.
Offering a selection of five ice-inspired cocktails, the Rooftop Mirage series promises to keep things cool while you soak in views of the beautiful city from the stylish rooftop lounge.
Inspired by the Japanese kakigõri and Italian affogato, the new series of beverages can be poured over shaved-ice or silky smooth gelato.
For something refreshing, opt for the Art Basil made with a blend of Ketel One Vodka, fragrant basil and lime, and a punch of fruity pineapple juice. Infused with vibrant aromas, this tantalising tipple will not only quench your thirst but is well and truly instagram-worthy with it’s unique coffee dripper presentation and velvety green tea ice cream.
For coffee lovers and those with a hankering for some sweet indulgence, the Wild Fairy will satisfy your cravings. A contemporary take on an Italian affogato, the cocktail is made with dark rum, double espresso and coffee liqueur. Served in a stylish ice-chilled sake carafe, pour this lively concoction over a generous serving of vanilla ice cream dusted with dehydrated strawberries and finally, enjoy.
If you’re a fan of Aperol, you’ll definitely not want to miss the bitter sweet Visions of Aperol, shaken with orange marmalade, yuzu sorbet and topped with prosecco for a little summer fizz.
Priced at HK$155 each and available only until 30th October, be sure to pop down (or up!) to Armani/Privé for the city’s coolest summer libations.
Address: Armani/Privé, 2/F Landmark Chater, 8 Connaught Road Central
