The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Date night @ OZONE [Ritz-Carlton], Hong Kong

Hubby and I had a bit of a fun date night recently, at Ozone in the Ritz Carlton, which is literally next door to us, making it a lazy but fancy choice. We hadn't been out on a date night for a while, so we decided to splurge a little - staying out a little longer, spending a little more. Both of us noticed Skyline Cocktail on the drinks menu, and while hubby was interested in the mix - Zacapa 23 Years, Absinth, Imperial Oolong Syrup, Pink Grapefruit, Lime Juice, Dom Perignon Foam, Chocolate Stones and Apple Wood Smoke - I must admit that the first thing that stood out to me was the hefty price. Being a bar at the swanky Ritz, everything at Ozone is generally quite a lot more expensive, but the Ozone signature cocktail, the Skyline (HK$295!), has to be the most expensive I have ever seen. It was also prepared with a certain flair and finesse, no doubt mostly for the visual benefit of those who order it (watch this cocktail process video to get an idea of how it's made). After a brief discussion with hubby, we decided to give it a try, with no special occasion to celebrate other than the fact that we'd put the kids in bed and we were out without the kids at the highest bar in the world.

I really liked the smokey flavour in the foam. An easy cocktail to drink:

Hubby's Choc Negroni (HK$188) was also delicious:
