Last Thursday, IHG Rewards VIPs were treated to a once in a lifetime experience when they were invited to see Michael Chen teach an exclusive masterclass in mixology.
Never before has Michael, the CHIVAS Masters winner, shared these secret recipes with the public. However, thanks to the Intercontinental Hotel Group, Cai Feng Lou and LAIBA, six lucky guests were given the chance to create their own signature drinks.
In the beautiful underwater setting at IHG Wonderland, guests were taught how to make the one-of-a-kind cocktails served at Cai Feng Lou that Michael created specially for the China-wide IHG restaurant concept.
The invitees were shown how to infuse spirits and mix the perfect cocktail as they were given the chance to recreate two different recipes. On show was the Oolong Lychee Daiquiri and the Yunnan Sour – two uniquely styled cocktails which blend western mixology with a dash of Asian influence.
The cocktails are part of an ongoing collaboration between LAIBA and Cai Feng Lou, where there are currently four bespoke bottled cocktails by LAIBA served at the world-renowned Chinese restaurant. The IHG rewards program aims to offer its guests a series of “money-can’t-buy” experiences and this personalised intimate masterclass is certainly no exception!
