Make the cold disappear with whisky
 
Whiskey, whisky or even bourbon makes the winter feel merrier and a little warmer. From now to the end of March, the Tonic Lounge at Hilton Beijing is offering buy-one-get-one selected whiskey and whisky, from Scotland's The Famous Grouse to the Fighting Cock Bourbon from the US. A quick note for foodies: whiskey with an "e" refers to Irish whisky, bourbon and rye, while whisky refers to the specific version of the drink distilled in Scotland. Think champagne and sparking wine!

You can discover from the refreshing Organic Afternoon Tea (268 yuan/$32 for two persons), which includes organic olive oil carrot cake, organic brown rice and garden vegetable sushi and Australian organic beef sandwich.
