Mamma Loves a Drink

Mamma always said “it’s five o’clock somewhere” and Thelma and Louise are here to help. The ready-to-go Thelma cocktail is made with Olmeca tequila, mezcal, banana oleo, Punt e Mes, Campari and rich homemade walnut bitters. For those with a taste for nostalgia, Louise is a balanced blend of PX sherry, dry vermouth with a dash of orange bitters. Best served as a pair, the speedy pours are priced at HK$65, with the option to upgrade to a big pour (over 5 glasses) for groups at HK$300.

Behind the counter, Mamma’s bar boy Ezac Gurung is mixing up sips, spirits and cocktails made to order, like the Little Blue Dress (HK$75), a floral concoction of gin, verjus, crème de violet, lavender syrup and lavender bitters, topped off with tonic.
