sourceWe’ve heard of sipping champagne from a woman’s shoe, but creating cocktails inspired by shoes is something altogether different—and we like it.

Thanks to Hong Kong’s world-class mixologist Lewis Tsang, a fourth-generation member of a winemaking family, The Lounge & Bar at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, will serve two fashion-worthy creations throughout the month of September. “His & Her” cocktails celebrate the designs of Jimmy Choo’s Fall/Winter 2014 Men’s and Women’s Shoe Collections.

If the designer’s name rings a bell, you might recall a scene from season three of “Sex and the City” when Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) misses the Staten Island ferry because she accidentally slips out of her shoe Cinderlla-style and yells out, “Wait, I lost my Choo!” Yes, we’re talking about that Choo.

The “His” drink, which Tsang created to reflect the bold masculinity of the men’s line, is aptly named Leather Revolution.

“Many people’s first impression of Jimmy Choo is of strong women in towering heels with stylish handbags,” says Tsang. “I, on the other hand, am intrigued by the rich heritage of the Jimmy Choo man: his innate confidence and rock-and-roll style, exemplified by The Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr., and cheeky sense of humor.”
