Four Seasons Hotel Seoul's speakeasy bar "Charles H." will participate in "Poured By Four Seasons X Negroni Week" with bars from Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Asia to showcase the Negroni of various recipes.
Charles H. offers four cocktails, including Cafe Negroni, Seoul Negroni, Four Seasons Hong Kong "Argo," and Four Seasons Bangkok's "BKK Social Club" bar's signature Negroni cocktails. The promotion runs from Sept. 12 to 25 and costs 31,000 won per cocktail.
“Poured by Four Seasons” will run from September 12 to 25, 2022, and feature 24 bars from across Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts Asia Pacific region. From Bali to the Maldives and Tokyo to Hong Kong, award-winning Four Seasons bars come together to celebrate the legendary Negroni.
Each participating outlet will offer two of its original creations, along with Philip Bischoff's and Lorenzo Antinori's signature cocktails.
The signature negroni presented at the Four Seasons Hotel Seoul's speakeasy bar Charles H. are "Cafe Negroni" and "Seoul Negroni." Cafe Negroni is a cocktail that homages coffee enjoyed in a European cafe, and if you take a bite from the soft vanilla foam at the top, the colorful flavors of truffle, chocolate, and coffee fill your mouth.
"Seoul Negroni" is a cocktail made in Korea that infuses ginseng into a Korean style, adds Campari and Omija scents, and has a new combination of ginseng flavor, the sour sweetness of omija and honey, and appropriate carbonation.
In addition, they prepared Black Pearl at the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong's "Argo" bar and Carretera Negroni at the Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok's "BKK Social Club" bar. "Black Pearl" is a new combination of Negroni and Manhattan cocktails, and it has a more decadent scent than conventional Negroni by adding Campari and aromatic beater to bourbon whiskey, mainly used in Manhattan.
A drop of sesame oil added at the end adds a savory flavor. "Carretera Negroni," named after Spain's Highway, which roughly connects the country, creates an exotic feeling with a cocktail that combines mezcal, pineapple-flavored Campari, and medicinal Rosso vermouth with coffee flavor.
Charles H. is ranked No.7 in Asia's 50 Best Bars, released in May 2022, and No. 42 in the 2021 World's 50 Best Bars. All of them are the number one records among Korean bars. The 2022 World 50 Best Bar list will unveil this upcoming October.
