One Epic Recipe
Hong Kong has always pushed the boundaries of typical cocktail culture, serving as a melting pot for eastern and western flavor profiles. Jay Khan sought to pay homage to his city’s heritage while also drawing inspiration from the creativity and experimentation found behind the bar. So, it’s no surprise that this drive to innovate and honor tradition led the Dynasty Margarita to take home the 2019 Margarita of the Year title.
