HKFC Beverage Programme
HKFC Beverage Programme01 Feb 2021
The Beverage Department of the Hong Kong Football Club isled by our Beverages and Kiosk Manager, Mr. Ken Lo. In addition to looking after new and existing products and creating new promotions, wine events and cocktails, another very important role is the development of our team. After identifying and developing Ray Kwong to be the Club's first Sommelier and Patrick Ng to be the Club's first Mixologist, we focused their skills to improve the Member's dining experience.
Recently, at the Restaurant and Bar Hong Kong held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 12th November 2020, Patrick “Jr.”, as he is fondly known, entered the Cocktail Challenge – Young Talent Mixologist Challenge. When the time to perform came around, Patrick Jr. did not disappoint us! Out of 23 competitors Patrick Jr. walked away with the first prize for his cocktail “Moon Hug”, a crafty combination of Chinese wolfberry infused gin, Japanese Shiso liqueur, homemade Osmanthus syrup and yuzu bitters. Not only did it taste incredible, but it looked spectacular. Maybe you can make a special request for it next time you drop by the Chairman’s Bar?
This February, honour of Valentine’s Day, Patrick Jr. has come up with a brand-new creation that he calls “Love Potion No. 9” after the 1964 song of the same name. It is a refreshing, delicate concoction that is sure to put your loved one under your spell. Please drop by and request for it by name, throughout the month of February, only at the Chairman’s Bar. And, please check regularly for new promotions, whether it is a discovery of some premium spirits or more cocktails, the Hong Kong Football Club’s Beverage Department is dedicated to ensuring you enjoy every drink to the last drop.
