Cheers to women

To celebrate Women’s History Month, Tao Hospitality Group has created two delicious cocktails one available at Hakkasan Hanway Place and Mayfair and one at Yauatcha Soho and City, both inspired by influential women in Chinese history, Chien-Shiung Wu and Cecilia Chung. Hakkasan will be offering the Chien-Shiung Wu, a ‘daring and cutting edge’ cocktail with tequila, lime and rasberry; Yauatcha will be offering the Cecilia Chung, a spicy and sweet cocktail with whiskey, mango and pineapple. You’ll be able to order these cocktails from 4 March – 4 April, with 50p of each cocktail sold going to the incredible charity Celebrate Her. Fancy making them yourself at home instead? You’re in luck – both cocktail recipes below…
