Hello again everyone — coming up this Sunday night is LCL’s Los Angeles launch party. The festivities will run from 8 ’til closing at The Varnish [ 118 East 6th St ]
Here’s what to expect:
Duggan McDonnell of Cantina in San Francisco and Campo de Encanto Pisco will be on hand, and so will his pisco. We’re infusing a bunch of it with dried apricots as we speak to make Ryan Fitzgerald’s “Il Terzo,” one of our favorite cocktails from the book.
Anu Apte of Rob Roy… in Seattle will be behind the bar mixing up some of her original creations, including the Saffron Sandalwood Sour and the Smallflower, both from Left Coast Libations.
Also behind the bar will be The Varnish’s own Devon Tarby, who with Anu will surely create the most Unstoppable Drink Duo of Full Feminine Force the world has yet known.
Many of LCL’s Los Angeles contributors, including Varnish co-owner Eric Alperin will be present as well, regaling guests with tales of “what it was really like” to be part of Left Coast Libations.
Ted Munat, Michael Lazar, and Scott Bodarky – creators of Left Coast Libations – will be signing books and being general nuisances. Books will be available for sale.
Ta Ta For Now…
