Sakura Blossom Mixology at Up & Above Bar
The talented bartenders at The Okura Prestige Bangkok’s Up & Above Bar are once again serving up a selection of sophisticated beverages inspired by Japan’s famous Sakura cherry trees, which are in full bloom during March until June. Old favourites include the Sakura Royale, a classic bubbly mix, and the Sakura Martini made with artisanal spirits is infused with botanicals from the Scottish Highlands for a delightful bloomy twist.
The Sakura 75, a sublime mix of bubbly, artisanal spirits, Sakura syrup, and lemon juice, and the divine Sakura Oriental Tonic, Up & Above’s take on the classic Gin & Tonic blending Sakura blossoms with other seasonal Japanese botanicals, tonic, rose water, cardamom, and cinnamon.
Equally delicious are three mocktails based on invigorating cherry flavours; the Simply Sakura mixes cherry purée with Yuzu juice and soda water for a bubbly taste sensation, while The Blossoms combines cherry purée, black pepper infused syrup, cream and lime juice for an intriguing texture and a heady flavour. Also delightful is the Sakura Cloud, a refreshing mix of pineapple and Yuzu juice with cherry blossom syrup and Sakura foam.
