Savour The 5 Elements At The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Ozone Bar

Folks who have a thing for cocktail are going to love this brand new 5 Elements Cocktail Menu created by The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Ozone Bar Manager Oscar Mena. In addition to the time-honoured cocktails already on offer at Ozone, these newly launched concoctions are going to elevate your cocktail experience to new heights at the world’s highest bar.

Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Ozone Bar – Oscar’s New Creation 

“I have always been fascinated by how each element has its own place in this world while interacting and complementing each other,” said Oscar, the Mexican-born mixology maestro. His five new creations are named after the five most essential elements of life – Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth. Each of them resembles the essence, colour or even flavour of its represented element.

Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Ozone Bar – Water Element

Water, for example, is decorated with pearl-like yoghurt bubbles in an oyster shell. You will not only be reminded of the ocean visually by its eye-catching blue hue, but also by its savoury hint of umami bitters. Coconut water is added to this vodka and sake-based cocktail to strike a balance.

Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Ozone Bar – Wood Element

Made with a base of Alipus Mezcal that’s aged in wooden barrels for a month before being served, Wood promises to impress with its smoky overtones. Stirred with dashes of chocolate bitters and Fernet Hunter, a bitter liqueur with aromas of lavender and citrus, this powerful cocktail of amazing complexity is Oscar’s personal favourite.

Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Ozone Bar – Earth Element 

Reminiscing the earthy scent of the forest after the rain in Oscar’s childhood memories, Earth is another must-try item on the menu. Shiitake mushroom-infused rum creates the essence of Earth, while non-alcoholic spirit, Seedlip Garden, and pandan syrup give floral notes to Oscar’s very own garden housed in a ceramic mug.

Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Ozone Bar – Metal Element 

Beautifully presented in a metallic vessel, gin-based Metal demonstrates a harmonic symphony of flavours comprising the citrus notes from fizzy kombucha and lemon juice, and the delightful sweetness of Italicus and umeshu.

Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Ozone Bar – Fire Element 

Featuring carrot, blood orange and the pleasant fragrance of St~Germain Elderflower, whisky-based Fire, spiced up with Thai chilli tincture, tastes and looks as hot as its name suggests.

“If you taste the cocktails in the order of Water, Metal, Fire, Wood and Earth, you are going to have a taste of how these five distinct cocktails strike a perfect flavour balance,” Oscar suggested.

A savoury start with Water or refreshing kick-off with Metal helps get the palate ready for the powerful Wood and fierce Fire, while Earth wraps up the flavorful journey as desserts do.

Besides this newly launched menu, you may also choose from the comprehensive traditional cocktail menu at Ozone.
