Summer Palace Chinese Dim Sum Chef Leong Kwok Sing partners with Bar Manager Philip Bischoff of Manhattan, to present an exquisite collection of perennial favourites and two new Manhattan-exclusive snow skin mooncaks: Barrel-aged Sazerac 6-year-old Rye with Coffee and Chocolate and Barrel-aged La Louisiane Cocktail with Yuzu and Green Bean Paste.




Barrel-aged Sazerac 6-year-old Rye with Coffee and Chocolate Snow Skin Mooncake

Agedin a 10-year-old tawny port-washed American oak barrel for 25 days, this 6-year-old rye whiskey is infused with the coffee and chocolate paste. This delivers sweet and sharp flavours on one’s palette.  



Barrel-aged La Louisiane Cocktail with Yuzu and Green Bean Paste Snow Skin Mooncake

A classic Creole cocktail recreated with Manhattan's Rickhouse. High West OMG Pure Rye, Mancino Rosso Vermouth and Dom Benedictine, are solera-aged in fresh American oak for a total of four weeks. It is surprisingly citrusy and refreshing with yuzu and green bean paste and does not even taste like its alcoholic origins.


White Lotus Paste with Yolk and Melon Seeds

The traditional snowskin began with white lotus paste, yolk and melon seeds – only without the lard rubbed baked skin.



Made with fresh Mao Shan Wang and D24 durian flesh, this pungent one will raise hell in hotels even – more sweet than bitter but I guess sweet durians work better for desserts, especially snowskin mooncakes.



Green Tea with Melon Seeds

Love your green tea slightly bitter and thick, this green tea snowskin mooncake would just be right up your alley.


Black Sesame Paste with Melon Seeds

I love my black sesame dessert and this is a richer version of sesame paste and comes with a melty snow skin too.


Prices start from $72 for snowskin selections.
