“THE ART OF MAHJONG” COCKTAIL MENU
Introducing a new cocktail menu inspired by Mahjong, the iconic tile-based game integral to Hong Kong society over the years. With the craftsmanship and artistry of traditional hand-drawn Mahjong tiles in mind, the new cocktails reinterpret the game’s bonus tiles and their associated Confucian plants and seasons into enchanting base flavours: Plum, Orchid, Bamboo, Chrysanthemum, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. In keeping with Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® guiding philosophy, DarkSide invited local artisans who remain faithful to time-honoured crafts to contribute their unique skills towards the menu. Mahjong tile-makers Masters Ricky Cheung and Karen Aruba Art were commissioned to re-imagine the flower and season Mahjong tiles for the menu’s artwork, while local glass-blowing workshop Soekjing Studio designed and handcrafted the cocktail glassware. Ceramics were created by Tung Yao Ceramics, a long-standing local brand renowned for developing and celebrating Chinese pottery.
