The Signature Cocktail
The Signature Cocktail
Qi's signature cocktail is a combination of flavors from all over—star anise, yuzu, lime, guava juice, and Thai iced tea. It's also named after Bangkok's official designation: Krungthepmahanakhon Amornrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharat Ratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphiman Awatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit. At the time of this writing, Qi is still awaiting their liquor license.
