Today and tomorrow, Kazuhisa Arai, general manager of the award-winning bar Sober Company, Shanghai, is presenting a menu of six signature cocktails at The Ritz-Carlton Bar & Lounge. Kazuhisa began his bartending journey at just 20 years old, coming first at Jameson Bartender’s Ball-World Mix Master competition in 2016. In 2017, he relocated to Shanghai to set up Sober Company with Shingo Gokan, the mastermind behind The Odd Couple in Shanghai and The SG Club in Tokyo. Under Kazuhisa’s guidance, Sober Company is awarded by Asia’s 50 Best Bars for five consecutive years, rising through the ranks each year to 5th place in 2021.
Kazuhisa will bring popular cocktails from Sober Company and its sister bars to his guest shift, including the Sixty Forty, a Martini and Manhattan combination; XO, a woody, leathery tequila-based negroni; and the Heminguava Daiquiri, a tropical delight crafted with Appleton White Rum, Guava, Grapefruits and Maraschino.
