Two Local Spirits, Two Great Cocktail Recipes

At our restaurant, we believe in more than just serving delicious meals – we’re also passionate about supporting our local community and showcasing the incredible craftsmanship of small businesses.

We’re thrilled to introduce you to two of our favorite local spirits that you’ll find behind our bar, and the reason that our cocktails are as smooth and delicious as they are.

And, as a bonus… we’re sharing the recipes to two of our South Bay famous cocktails here with you!

R6 Vodka & Our Pear Necessities Cocktail

R6 Vodka is crafted just a few miles up the coast at the R6 Distillery in El Segundo. Their vodka is distilled an astonishing 20 times in a German Kothe still using 100% non-GMO yellow corn, ensuring exceptional purity and smoothness. R6 Vodka has earned multiple accolades for its clean profile and versatility in mixology. We also love knowing that by putting this vodka on our shelves, we’re supporting another family-owned business.

Try it in one of our favorite summer cocktails on our menu, the Pear Necessities!

Pear Necessities:
– 1.5 oz. R6 vodka
– .75 oz. fresh pear puree
– .75 oz. fresh citrus
– .5 oz. housemade Limoncello

City Bright Gin & Our Liguria Lemondrop Cocktail

Greenbar Distillery was Los Angeles’ first distillery since the Prohibition, and one of the earliest craft distilleries in the U.S. With a commitment to organic ingredients sourced directly from farmers, the City Bright gin is the perfect representation for cocktails looking to add some locality to the mix and has an exciting variation of flavors that really depict what LA is all about.

This makes it perfect for our Liguria Lemondrop – a bright cocktail on our menu that uses locally-sourced ingredients.

Liguria Lemondrop
– 1.5 oz. City Bright Gin
– .75 oz. housemade Limoncello
– 2 squeezed lemon wheels
– 2 locally grown basil leaves
– Splash of lemonade for sweetness
