Black-tea ice cubes, sultana swizzle sticks, honeycomb, vodka, gin, rye and more all shaken and stirred and muddled and served for your pleasure - meet the drinks (and their makers) you'll find at the year's biggest cocktail carnival
Toko bustles with beautiful people in beautifully designed surrounds six nights per week. It is also no secret that these beautiful people are obsessed with the lychee – check out Toko’s famed Lychee and Jasmine Mojito. Toko’s diminutive bar area hasn’t quite been muscled out by the restaurant and a seat at the wide wooden bartop will find you sipping whisk(e)y-laced delights such as the Smoked Maple Manhattan (smoked maple wood infused Tennessee whiskey with maple syrup, orange bitters and sweet vermouth) or the Suntory Malted Flip (Japanese whisky, shaken with drunken apricots, barrel-aged bitters and beer ice cream!). You could just grab yourself a cold bottle of Yebisu lager while stocks last – the bartender says the brewery was destroyed by the tsunami – then order up from the restaurant menu. Top booze-soaking nibbles include the deliciously messy spicy edamame (fried soy beans lathered in chilli sauce) and the deep-fried goodness of the uzura no karaage (shaved bonito fried quail).
