Cocktail Recipe – The Red Mekong
Beginning on the Tibetan Plateau, the Mekong river runs for more than 4000 kilometres through China, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam before flowing into the South China Sea. Not only is this vigorous river the longest in Southeast Asia, it is also the most important source of food for the local communities living along it.
Inspired by this legendary river, our talented barman at Zannier Hotels Bãi San Hô created The Red Mekong. A non–alcoholic cocktail with a beautiful red colour, considered as one of our signature drinks served at Hâm Bar. Check out the recipe below.

MORE ABOUT THE MEKONG
Located 800 kilometers from Zannier Hotels Bãi San Hô, the Mekong river is full of life at every level.
The Mekong river, showcasing the vibrant traditional Vietnamese culture perfectly, is capable of providing one-third of Vietnam’s food. Home to many endangered species such as the Asian elephant, the Indonesian tiger or the Saola, one of the world’s rarest mammals, its extraordinary biodiversity comes second after the Amazonian river. Thanks to this diversity, the Mekong gastronomy is rich and offers unique dishes, for the delight of local populations and tourists.
