Maybe Sammy Introduces Their Brand New Cocktail Menu For The Year

Bars, Drink, Sydney / 2 May 2023

With 14 signature cocktails designed to surprise and delight.

Your days of searching for a new favourite cocktail are finally over! The team at Maybe Sammy have unveiled their newest menu, and it promises to be a one-of-a-kind cocktail experience. Aptly named Mirage, the new cocktails were inspired by each of the bartending team’s personal mirage moments – those unexpected and surprising experiences that caught them off guard. 

Each of these unique moments served as the mood board for Maybe Sammy’s 2023 menu release. Come prepared to expect the unexpected with 14 cocktails on the list, guaranteed to exceed all expectations and delivered with the flair the team have been internationally recognised for. Better yet, some creations will also be available in a mocktail version, so all designated drivers and sans-alcohol lovers can get in on the action. 

Get ready to indulge in Golden Pear, a champagne and whiskey combination that isn’t exactly what the name suggests. With the flavours of quince (thanks to the Branko Quince Brandy) and the infused Michter’s Bourbon, this cocktail is further enhanced with Mesoyi bark and a touch of Taittinger Brut Reserve Champagne to take it to the next level. Fruity lovers will be pleased to hear a refreshing, fruity aperitif is coming their way with Infinity, a small but mighty cocktail. Served in a sea urchin cup with an aroma bubble, it’ll transport you straight to the beach on a tropical vacation. Plus, there’s also a mini version available for Happy Hour.

Maybe Sammy’s own rendition of an Old Fashioned comes in the form of Vino Bastardo, as wine becomes whisky in this aromatic cocktail. Glenfiddich 14-Year-Old Bourbon Barrel Reserve infused with raisins forms the base of the drink, then stirred with Cocchi Americano Biano,  Nardini Tagliatella (adding rich complexity), and Cassis Angostura Bitter. The finishing combination? Bold, sophisticated, and simply unforgettable. 

If you want to take a walk on the adventurous side, be sure to order Terra Nova, a cocktail inspired by the resilience of nature. The base of Don Julio Blanco tequila provides earthiness, while Los Siete Misterios Doba Yej mezcal adds a smoky edge. The cocktail is then balanced with zesty lime juice and an infusion of mole dulce, a rich Mexican sauce reinvented with native Australian ingredients like macadamia milk and wattle seed. Served in a black ceramic cup (representing soil), and paired with an edible meringue with a ‘plant’ growing from it.

Maybe Sammy’s new cocktail menu will be available from Wednesday, May 10. For more information, visit their website here.
