Kiss Above the Clouds by Cross Yu

Kiss Above the Clouds by Cross Yu

Based on a Manhattan, Kiss Above The Clouds was created by Cross Yu, China’s Bartender of the Year. It’s rich and warm, smooth yet complex, with a long lasting finish, and garnished with a small homemade side of grilled orange and cinnamon that complements the drink’s chocolate flavours.




3.4 units of alcohol per serve


  • 1 x Old Fashioned glass

  • 1 x Strainer

  • 1 x Knife

  • 1 x Bar Spoon

  • 1 x Cocktail Shaker

  • 1 x Jigger

  • 1 x Chopping Board

  • 1 x Ice


  • Ice

    Fill a mixing glass with ice cubes.

  • Pour

    Using a jigger, measure 60ml Dark Rum, 20ml sweet vermouth, 5ml coffee liqueur, 5ml Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve and 2 dashes chocolate bitters into the glass.

  • Mix

    Stir the liquid slowly with a bar spoon until the mixing glass feels chilled. Use a cocktail strainer to strain into an Old Fashioned glass that contains one piece of ice.

  • Garnish

    With a chopping board and sharp knife, cut a twist of orange peel and place over the edge of the glass. Add in a stick of cinnamon to garnish.

  • Grab a bite

    Get some grub in before or while you’re drinking – it slows alcohol absorption.
