Today from the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we want to celebrate spring is coming with some delicious Asian cocktails. Dou you want to join us? Let´s go over the most famous cocktails.
Cocktails are gaining more and more popularity and a series of exotic drinks are arriving from the Far East. These cocktails from countries such as China, Thailand or Indonesia add tasty and unusual ingredients for us.
The main ingredients these Asian cocktails contain are: ginger, which perfectly matches with citrus; cardamom, a sweet and intense spice; Kaffir lime leaves, which stands out due to its sour taste; or litchi, a sweet fruit. All these ingredients are perfectly mixed with gin, rum or vodka.
