Baijiu is the world’s most popular spirit you’ve never heard of and it will get you DRUNK. Happily, now is your chance to learn all about the Chinese ‘white liquor’, because as well as being Chinese New Year, it’s also about to be Baijiu Cocktail Week . The celebratory week launched in 2014 to raise awareness of Shui Jing Fang baijiu and also hit the spot for cocktail aficionados. A host of bars and restaurants across London will be getting in on the baijiu action, from Bo Drake to Ping Pong, where they’ve created a moreish cocktail called Dizzy Monkey (pictured) to mark the new year.

 February 5-14
