DarkSide at Rosewood Hong Kong is debuting a new cocktail men inspired by "the eight phases of the moon and their mystical powers" for the city's moon gazing cocktail crowds.

The Waxing Crescent phase is the moon’s first step towards fullness, consistent with a build-up of personal energy. 

The matching stirred cocktail is based loosely on an Old Fashioned with a Remy Martin VSOP cognac base. Nuttiness from tonka beans interacts with the complexity of Graham’s Fine Ruby Port wine and Bourgoin Pineau des Charentes. The aromatic cocktail is served in a teacup with a block of ice and spritzes of myrrh mist.
