Mandarin Oriental, New York’s hip bar, MObar, shares the same drink menu as its more casual Lobby Lounge. The cocktails are divided into three sections: Seasonal, signature and modern classics. Expect the seasonal drinks to change often, reflecting the current New York season. During winter months, you’ll see rustic cocktails such as the London Calling, a mixture of Bulldog gin, dried apricots, fennel seeds, peach nectar, lemon juice, agave syrup and lemon bitters.
The signature drinks at the Mandarin Oriental, New York’s bar feature refreshing concoctions like the Ginger Mojito and the Fresa Fresca, made with Milagro silver tequila, fresh strawberries and basil. The modern classics section offers elegant twists on traditional cocktails, like a Cosmopolitan made with Belvedere Pink Grapefruit vodka or the New Fashioned — as opposed to an Old Fashioned — prepared with Bulleit bourbon, peach puree, Southern Comfort and Carpano sweet vermouth. Every tipple on the list at this New York hotel bar — from the traditional to the overwhelming — is inventive and delicious.
