Newcastle Cocktail Bar Mother Mercy Launches Home Cocktail Hotline

As more people look to re-create the experience of their favourite cocktails at home during the lockdown, cocktail bar Mother Mercy will be on hand to help with their Home Cocktail Hotline, ‘Mother Knows Best.’


Following the government’s announcement that the national lockdown is set to continue for at least another 3 weeks, and with bars and restaurants not likely to open for the foreseeable future, many people will be using this time to make their own cocktails at home for the first time.


‘Mother Knows Best’ can answer any cocktail questions you have within 30 minutes; from cocktail recipes, tips and trivia, to helping with the best supermarket wine to pair with your meal. You can even send them a list of ingredients in your fridge and kitchen cupboards and they’ll come up with a cocktail recipe!


Whilst there are a huge number of tutorials and videos available online, ‘Mother Knows Best’ provides the most personalised service. Giving you the opportunity to have your questions answered 1-2-1 by an expert mixologist, so you can get back to making the drinks!

Want to know the secret to the best Espresso Martini at home?

Looking to buy a new bottle of gin but need some help deciding between all the different brands and prices?


Drop ‘Mother Knows Best’ a Whatsapp Messenger message on +44 (0) 7592 094930, from 11am-11pm every day, and they’ll come straight back to you with all the answers you need.


Mother Mercy owner Neil Donachie states;

‘Whilst the Coronavirus closure is set to have a devastating impact on the hospitality industry, it has been inspiring to see lots of people gaining the confidence to be creative with cocktails at home, many for the very first time. We wanted to help by offering our support and providing a fun and innovative way to answer any of those questions you’d usually have to opportunity to ask the bartender at your favourite bar!

One thing is for sure, inspiring more people to drink and have fun making cocktails is only going to help build a new audience of people that all bars and restaurants will need to call on for support when we do eventually reopen.
