  • They say the best way to actually know a bar is to know about their cocktails—the more creative it is, the better. You’d know about their authenticity if they have signature cocktails that you found out by word of mouth (or maybe by simply asking the bartender). Plus, who wouldn’t want to try something new every now and then apart from your usual?

    Matcha Amaretto Sour (Php 450) and Ducky Punch (Php 980)

    Nomu has its own take on the classic amaretto sour—their Matcha Amaretto Sour explodes with flavor with its right mix of matcha, lemon juice, egg white, choco bitters, going well with bourbon whiskey. You can also try their oh-so-cute Ducky Punch, but instead of bath water and bubbles, it’s made up of deadly vodka and tequila. While you’re at it, they also have delish Japanese eats!
