From Mumbai and Abu Dhabi to Doha and Shanghai, the Hakkasan Group’s decadent and stylish hospitality is known worldwide. At MGM Grand, Hakkasan Las Vegas’ latest cocktail flight celebrates the Evolution of Ling Ling, the company’s refined izakaya experience. Adding to its location in Mykonos, Ling Ling will open in Marrakech, Morocco this fall, and next year in Oslo, Norway.
The flight, which consists of three Tanqueray No. 10 cocktails and three dim sum bites, is a perfect way to sample this eclectic beverage program while sampling Hakkasan’s famously mouth-watering cuisine.
Crafted by mixologist Tim Weigel and director of beverage Constantin Alexander, the Ling Ling flight begins with the Bitter Fortune. Featuring gin, Aperol, rhubarb liqueur, pink grapefruit and peach bitters, it’s bright and tangy, a perfect contrast to the delicate, savory venison puff. The sweeter Golden Mare blends the Bitter Fortune ingredients with Pernod, rosemary, basil and pineapple, bringing out the crispy duck roll’s inherent richness. To round out the flight, the spicy and indulgent Chili Coupette branches out with chilies, cardamom, peppermint and passion fruit. With so many ingredients, this cocktail could easily be overwhelming, but the end game is a balanced, citrus-spiced infusion that pairs magnificently with Hakkasan’s tender sesame prawn toast.
Thanks to the Evolution of Ling Ling flight, you can sample fresh flavors from all over the globe without ever leaving your seat in Vegas. Available through August 31 at Hakkasan at MGM Grand, 702-891-7888.
