I'm going to New York for a long weekend with my mum and my sister. If I'm 18, can I drink in a restaurant with my mums permission?

Nope.

Bummer.

Unless you're at a wedding, legally, no.

At the restaurant, know in advance what you want to drink. Nothing conspicuous. Have your mum casually order a round of drinks for all 3 of you. Nobody show any ID. They want the business and may not card you. But if they do, your mum can say, "We're from U.K., we didn't know, haha." Always have your mum order the rounds of drinks - you both can compensate her later. Have a nice weekend here!
