It seems like it’s “5 o’clock somewhere” a lot more these days! Shake up some of Oakland Afro-Latino kitchen Sobre Mesa's specialty cocktails, or mix your own Mai Tai, and be the designated mixologist of your Zoom happy hour!
Sobre Mesa has bottled three of their handcrafted cocktails to be enjoyed at home: Their signature “Sobre Mesa,” the “Sunny Side,” a tropical spin on a Negroni, and the “Flor Y Canto.” All of these cocktails are available on DoorDash through their sister restaurant, AlaMar.
