If a shot of rum isn’t enough to set your nerves to right, Hong Kong bar Honi Honi is now serving CBD cocktails.
If you’ve not noticed how CBD has become the new byword for stress management in constantly-on-the-edge Hong Kong, you’ve been missing out. While the jury is still very much out on how effective CBD – one of the more than 100 cannabinoids found in both cannabis and its straight-laced sibling hemp – really is, beyond very effective marketing, any additional respite will be gratefully received by a population that’s had a year they’d probably just as soon forget.
Available from this week, the four new additions each contain 30ml of CBD, in addition to their usual tiki-tastic ingredients. There’s the Tropical Storm, with Svedka Vodka, guava nectar, passion fruit, and strawberry puree; a CBD-spiked pina colada with Don Q Gold rum; the Life CBD Bikini Girl, with Nusa Caña Rum, lychee purée, cucumber, rose water, cranberry juice, and lychee syrup; and the refreshing Honi Honi Collins with Greenall Gin, elderflower, lemon, mint, and lemongrass.
While the drinks are on the steep side (HK$160 a pop), we think this sounds like a pretty great option for lads looking for an interesting date night venue. And if you do feel that stress melting away – placebic or not – you can also take home 200ml bottles of CBD in Maori Sping Punch and Pina Colada flavours.
Because 2021 isn’t looking crash hot either.
