Letters From Lee is one of three cocktails on the new Dim Sum & Drink Sum menu at Mott 32 at The Venetian. It offers a variety of dim sum starters such as Iberico pork Shanghainese soup dumplings and shredded Peking duck mushroom spring rolls, available from 5 to 7 p.m. and 9 to 11 p.m. The rum-forward cocktail plays like a tiki drink with matcha, making it sweet and pleasantly creamy.
