The two Italian mixologists have prepared an intriguing list of boozy options for RMB88 per cocktail. How does Glenlivet 12, salted Campari, grapefruit juice and peanut butter sound to you? Those are the ingredients in Minoia's Blue Grass Sour, and we can't wait to see how those components come together. As for Pagliara's menu, we have our eye on Sandalwood (Chivas Mizunara, turmeric, sandalwood soda).
