Art Inspired Cocktails
In honour of art month, bars and restaurants all over the city have compiled new and exciting drinks, inspired by works of art…

Chachawan

Available all month at Chachawan, the “Thai Landscape” ($88) is a light and refreshing mix of Hendricks gin, rosewater, cucumber cordial, dry vermouth and purple orchids. The perfect antidote to the spicy Thai cuisine.

Mrs. Pound, Dr. Fern’s Gin Parlour, and Foxglove

Throughout the month of March, five limited-edition Art Basel cocktails will be available across the bars at Mrs. Pound, Foxglove and Dr. Fern’s Gin Parlour. On offer at Mrs. Pound is the Van Gogh x Louis Vuitton ($120), an ode to the collaboration between the iconic post-impressionist painter, Vincent van Gogh, and one of the world’s most revered luxury fashion house, Louis Vuitton. A creative reinvention of Van Gogh’s most famous art piece, “Sunflowers”, the cocktail is served in a miniature flowerpot, and features a garnish of a small, chrysanthemum bouquet attached to the straw.
