5 Centimeters a Second

5 centimeters a second is the rate at which the beautiful cherry blossoms swirl towards the ground.

Light and floral, the perfect accompaniment to toast to their fleeting beauty, as a tribute to the delicacies of spring.

Created at the H Tasting Lounge by Mixologists Chiara Fung and Andrew Kong. Enjoy this lovely cocktail alongside the lovely Sakura in Bloom afternoon tea, held between April 6-28.


Notes from the Mixologists on the cocktail:


“5 Centimeters a Second is a light and floral sour. Smooth, pleasant and relaxing, like taking a stroll outside to view the Cherry Blossoms at that special time of year.”
