Updated on March 6 2014

Hong Kong’s cocktail culture is heating up, and no, we’re not talking about Flaming Lambourghini’s (those days are definitely over). With so many award-winning mixologists and themed bars popping up, finding a good cocktail is no longer a challenge — you just have to know where to look.

Luckily, we’ve done the hard work for you by bringing you five of Hong Kong‘s hottest cocktails in Central. Coincidentally, they happen to be made by five just-as-hot bartenders who might be making your cocktails the next time you visit (if you’re lucky!).
