Yes, Mamasita does a lot more than Mexican food and lines out the door. It’s true.
Since 2010 the perennially popular restaurant has been refining its tequila-only cocktail list, plucked from the dozen tequila-based libations on rotation. Their latest creation is the Bebida Rosita.
Tipping its hat to the Old World but bringing along new school Latino flavours, the Bebida Rosita combines hibiscus-infused tequila and 30yr oloroso sherry in this ‘little pink drink’.
Representing the sour family, this plucky drink packs more punch than you might think, with a generous kick of habanero bitters at the finish.
30ml hibiscus infused tequila 30ml 30yr oloroso sherry 15ml lemon juice 15ml sugar syrup
1 egg white 2/3 thimble of habanero bitters
Combine all except bitters in boston glass add ice and shake the jesucristo out of it!
Strain into glass, add bitters
