The Scandalous Sour is an original drink from our Kocktail Curator Neil Donachie. Neil is one of the owners of Newcastle’s Mother Mercy cocktail bar, which was recently named as one of the UK’s top 50 cocktail bars.
Neil also spent quite a few years as the Senior Bartender at the famous Savoy Hotel’s Beaufort Bar, where he learnt to create the finest cocktails in the world and to serve clients with finesse and discretion…
Much like a good doctor, a great bartender will never tell what they have seen or heard over the bar. So in honour of all those interesting stories that will remain sealed secrets - we present the Scandalous Sour, a salacious cocktail of Pueblo Viejo Tequila, fresh lime juice and hibiscus and passionfruit syrup.
