The festive season is upon us and, after a year of hard work, it’s time to gather and celebrate with loved ones and indulge in the charming atmosphere at Shangri-La Qiantan, Shanghai. A series of delightful offerings have been prepared for you to enjoy the holiday season to the fullest. 



GardenLab Christmas Cocktails

Toast the season at GardenLab with three Christmas-themed cocktails – Las Posadas Mulled Wine, "SHANG" Eggnog and Poinsettia.  


Drawing inspiration from natural herbs and vegetables, these special cocktails represent classical Christmas flavors with an innovative twist.

Spiced and served with fresh herbs and an orange slice, the Las Posadas Mulled Wine sees coffee butter fat washed Olmeca tequila blended with Montenegro, green tea and Rioja Tempranillo for a warming sipper.

Dessert in a glass, the "SHANG" Eggnog is a mix of SG Shochu, Rémy Martin and festively-spiced cream, finished with aromatic star anise.

The refreshing Poinsettia is a seemingly simple mix of Olmeca tequila and Montenegro, finished with London Essence tonic that translates to a pleasantly light libation that acts as both the ideal pre-dinner aperitivo and a post-dinner digestif.
