For its annual Chinese New Year celebration, Hakkasan New York is collaborating with the acclaimed Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell for this year’s Fortune Macarons. A hybrid between a fortune cookie and a French macaron, the 2019 Fortune Macarons will be wrapped in witty fortunes written by Candice herself. In traditional Candice fashion, the fortunes will touch on sex, love, and of course, Manolo Blahniks. Example fortunes include:

  • Your Mr. Big will turn out to be not so big.
  • You will get splashed by a Sex and the City tour bus.
  • You’re about to get three dollars a word at Vogue.

Paying homage to the iconic character that Candice’s lifework inspired, Hakkasan will also be serving a new signature cocktail, the After Cosmo, to honor everyone’s favorite NYC it-girl, Carrie Bradshaw. The After Cosmo, made with Grey Goose vodka, Hibiscus-infused Cointreau, Vanilla-Lemongrass syrup, and adorned with lime and caviar, is guaranteed to give sippers good fortune in life, career, and romance this year. Remember ladies, just because it’s the Year of the Pig, doesn’t mean you need to date one.
