COA, Hong Kong’s very first Oaxacan inspired artisanal cocktail bar has soft opened, led by bar veteran Jay Khan. Paying homage to its namesake – a machete-like tool used for harvesting giant agave plants – COA offers an impressive range of rare agave spirits for mezcal lovers to enjoy. Some of the bottles are available exclusively at COA, such as El Jolgorio Tepeztate, which is made from one of the rarest agaves in the world – Tepeztate, which requires an average of 30 years to mature before it is ready to be harvested. Eight artisanal cocktails are on offer, including the Horchata de Pistachio ($90), a blend of homemade Mexican horchata, Ocho Blanco, homemade pistachio orgeat, lemon, egg white and a sprinkling of sweet potato dust. Be sure to pair your drinks with bar bites like the fries with Mexican spices ($68), only available during the soft opening period.
