Cocktail of the week: Koko kwai from Ka Pao | cocktails

Like our food, Ka Pao’s cocktail menu is inspired by the flavors of Southeast Asia. This hard-hitting little number is no exception, with coconut and lychee flavored spirits paired with the refreshing taste of fresh pineapple and citrus. It’s a great pick-me-up for an early spring afternoon.
