From 21-22 September Head Mixologist, John Nugent and Executive Chef Chris Grare of Lily & Bloom will be taking over Vida Rica Bar at Mandarin Oriental Macau. The duo will be presenting innovative cocktails and delicious bites to satisfy all appetites.
Over the two evenings from 7pm – 12 am guests will be treated to classic cocktails with a unique twist, including John’s exhilarating twist to a 1700s classic concoction – the English Milk Punch. The cocktail is composed using nine spirits and milk including aged rum, mezcal and more, clarified in a three-day process resulting in a crystal-clear, highly-addictive dram, with a hint of sweetness.
Other signature cocktails that need to be on the hit list include a whiskey-based Snickers Old Fashioned, tangy LB Daiquiri, American Standard and more.
Executive Chef Chris Grare will be curating a menu that will have all foodies in awe. Guests can indulge in foie gras lollipops, where the sweet cherry compote delightfully cuts through the fatty foie gras. In addition, cured salmon & smoked oyster, served with horseradish crème, caviar and pickled mustard seed. If these don’t get your taste buds dancing then opt for the chicken drumettes, mini corn dogs, toasted marshmallow and other delicacies.
