Tequila

Mango Margarita

Your choice of cocktail says something about you. A dry martini may suggest elegance and sophistication. A frozen fruit margarita implies something altogether more louche.

SPIRIT OF adventure

In Hong Kong until recently, connoisseurship of spirits was mostly confined to a couple of specialised fields - cognac and Scotch whisky. If people ordered gin, vodka, rum or tequila, they might have expressed a brand preference, but bar patrons were unaware of the profusion of niche products emerging in those spirit categories. All that is changing - and fast.

Refined flavours in rose-hinted glasses

From its inception in 1963, The Mandarin and its bars were certainly the more elegant epicentre of whatever nightlife Central had to offer. From the swank supper club, the Button, in the 1960s, to the Harbour Room, a cabaret in the 1970s, to the still extant Captain's Bar and The Chinnery, the iconic venues provided a more upscale alternative to the sailor scene in Wan Chai.

Shining star

Tequila Kola got it right in describing its Rockstar furniture as 'striking' and 'kitsch'. The bed (queen size only, (HK$21,980) features an ornate carved-oak headboard upholstered in swirly black velvet that screams: 'Touch me, feel me.' You needn't be a Who fan, however, to appreciate the collection's table setting (above).

Go for glam

Tequila Kola's store in Central (shop 228, Prince's Building, tel: 2520 1611) is a fraction of the size of its Ap Lei Chau outlet, which is why it's been kitted out judiciously. The texture-rich interior features signature pieces of furniture plus giftware and accessories. Worth checking out is its Beluga range, which has Euro styling and a touch of glam.

Licence tequila

The shorebreak is 'macking' and 'gnarly' and the solid two-metre waves are really stomping in. There is no 'mushy junk' about. 'I feel really stoked!' I shout above the crashing waves. 'I'm really logging up some quality tube time in the Green Room!'
