Allison’s LA Cocktail Tour

At the end of May, posted an article announcing that the 10 LA  area bars made Food and Drink Magazine’s 2009 Top 100 Bars list.

  • Bar Centro
  • Comme Ca
  • Copa d’Oro
  • The Doheny
  • The Edison
  • The Hungry Cat
  • Musso & Frank Grill
  • The Penthouse
  • Seven Grand
  • The Varnish

I love a well-made cocktail. I love it when the flavors blend and work together. It is a nice change from the standard Vodka-Soda, Gin & Tonic, and Whiskey-Ginger Ale.

I’ve decided to take this list and use it as a guide to great drinks around LA.

So far I’ve accomplished slightly less than half the list:

  • Copa d’Oro ($5 Happy Hour drinks and post- happy hour and incredible Basil-Cucumber concoction)
  • The Edison
  • The Penthouse
  • Seven Grand (Hear the Mint Julep is great, but I’m not a fan)

There are still a few more to hit up, and more places with hand crafted, savory drinks popping up every day.  Let’s hope Food and Wine Magazine is right!
