Hong Kong SAR, China, 16 June 2022 – The arrival of mid-summer calls for a fun-filled party with friends. To celebrate the season, The Murray, Hong Kong join hands with kate spade new york for the first time to present a sun-sational cocktail and canapé pairing menu at rooftop bar and restaurant Popinjays. Inspired by the kate spade’s new summer collection Cabana featuring “Party on the rooftop”, four cocktails with dedicated canapés are offered for discerning guests.
Named after holiday cottages by a beach or a pool, kate spade’s Cabana collection launches a plethora of tasteful creations from handbags, clothing to jewellery in tropical colour palettes. Eye-catching floral themes, palm leaf prints and stripes are extensively used to embrace the summer essence and demonstrate a youthful vitality. A lifestyle bar and restaurant at The Murray with a breathtaking view overlooking the city’s skyline, Popinjays is designed to attract the city’s flamboyant and fashionable crowd in style, offering an unparalleled dining experience. Inspired by the vivid Cabana collection, our talented mixologists meticulously craft four cocktails with tropical fruits to pair with tantalizing canapés. Urbanites can sit back at the terrace, indulge in the tastes of summertime and enjoy a leisurely holiday.
The gin-based Cabana is a twist on the classic Pina Colada. Blending pineapple juice, coconut syrup and pandan syrup, the cocktail bursts with tropical flavour and showcases a graceful light-green colour. The cocktail is paired with juicy and exotic Sugarcane Shrimp with coconut flakes as garnish. The distinctive Sriracha mayonnaise on side spices up the canapé.
Dreaming Spade is a blast of summer with plantation pineapple rum as the base, featuring appetising citrus notes from grapefruit juice, orange juice and lemon juice. Savour the perfectly Grilled Chicken Skewers glazed with pineapple sauce to complement the cocktail. The canapé is enriched by the flavourful peanut satay sauce.
Freshen up in the heat with Kate Summer, a harmonious combination of pear vodka, pineapple juice and lime juice. The delicate presentation makes it a photogenic cocktail. Elevate the experience with Beetroot Cured Salmon and Smoked Ikura, served with blinis and sour cream. The natural sweetness and fruitiness from the cocktail go well with the rich and buttery salmon.
Mixing mango juice, peach lime, passion fruit juice and vodka, Shine with Kate will transport you to the Caribbean Sea for a dreamy holiday. A rim of black pepper and sea salt offers a zesty hint to excite your palate. The cocktail is paired with Seabass Ceviche and crispy corn, bringing out the freshness and umami in the seafood.
Customers who order the cocktail pairing menu will receive a bespoke kate spade gift set with one cabana limited-edition poker and a 20% off kate spade coupon. Gifts are available while stock lasts.
The Murray x kate spade special cocktail pairing menu will be available at Popinjays from 20 June to 9 July 2022.
