hanky panky COLLABORATION
On November 2 and 3, Botanist’s Executive Chef Hector Laguna and Head Bartender Jeff Savage will welcome Mexico City’s acclaimed Hanky Panky cocktail bar, ranked 13th on the World’s 50 Best Bars list, for a Día de los Muertos collaborative dinner and cocktail experience.
For two nights only, Chef Laguna will pair a six-course tasting menu, infused in traditional Mexican flavours with three feature Hanky Panky cocktails, created by Hanky Panky bartender and General Manager, Gina Barbachano, and bartender, David Negrete, with three concocted by Botanist’s own Jeff Savage. Dishes will highlight a confluence of Mexican classics paired with Laguna’s contemporary techniques, such as blends of chorizo and caviar, lamb barbacoa and grilled octopus with leche de tigre.
Following the two-night tasting menu experience at Botanist, on November 4, the distinguished cocktail connoisseurs of Hanky Panky will team up with Fairmont Pacific Rim’s Creative Beverage Director, Grant Sceney, to offer a cocktail-forward experience at The Lobby Lounge & RawBar. The theme of the evening will continue in the spirit of Día de los Muertos, for a one-of-a-kind celebration featuring live music and entertainment.
