Canaan D Cocktail Bar (迦南D)

In New York, it was Milk & Honey. In Houston, it was Anvil. On Kulangsu, the next-generation cocktail culture has been shaped by a genuine, hard-working man named Gino, an island native who (in addition to being a star attacker for a semi-pro soccer team) has raised the mixology bar forever. Drinks are serious, but the decor in this dim speakeasy-style haunt is playful–especially the upstairs, whose darts, bric-a-brac furniture, and wainscoting give the place the look of a 1970s rec room repurposed by Brooklyn hipsters.

Gino is a Kulangsu native, but he does speak some English, and more importantly, he’s fluent in the international language of alcohol: just name your base spirit and leave the rest to the artist. Tricked-out cocktails aren’t cheap, but the labor and material costs are extraordinary, whether it’s dry ice, smoking wood shrubs, obscure spirits practically unavailable in China, a perfectly spherical ice cube the size of a baseball, or a Ramos Gin Fizz that needs to be shaken for a full five minutes.

Gino是迦南D酒吧的老板,可以说他建立了鼓浪屿上新一代的鸡尾酒文化。率真勤劳的Gino是一位当地的鼓浪屿居民,对调酒非常精通,也投入了非常多精力在酒水调配上。这家酒吧的饮品非常专业,楼上欢快的1970年代装饰风格是一位来自布鲁克林的时尚潮人设计的。在这里,你只要说出想喝的酒类基底,剩下的就交给这位调酒艺术家吧。
