Cocktail Events to Make Tuesday Feel Like Friday
NYC Bartender Ivy Mix
Tuesday isn't a traditional day for partying it up, but with a couple of great sounding events tonight you might want to practice your excuse for calling in sick tomorrow.
Guest Bartender Night: Ivy Mix from NYC's Clover Club and Lani Kai
When: Beretta on Tues., Oct. 25, 5:30 p.m.-1 a.m.; Delarosa on Weds., Oct. 26, 5:30 p.m.-1 a.m.
Where: Beretta, 1199 Valencia (at 23rd St.), 695-1199; Delarosa, 2175 Chestnut (at Pierce), 673-7100
The rundown: The guest bartender series at Beretta continues with Ivy Mix from NYC's Clover Club and Lani Kai brining her spirit-driven cocktails for the night like the Lost Rackets (rye, lemon, Batavia arrack, Cointreau, Benedictine), Flor de Cereza (blanco tequila, bianco vermouth, maraschino, orange bitters), and Artisaint (old tom gin, lemon, Cynar, St. Germain). Expect some fast moves from this East Coaster--she's co-founder of Speed Rack, an all-female speed bartending competition that raises cash for breast cancer charities.
Bols Genever Bar Crawl with LA Mixoligist Marcos Tello and Tal Nadari
When: 5:30 p.m.-12 a.m.
The rundown: Genever, the original "Dutch Courage" and an interesting spirit that is somewhere between a light whiskey and gin, is the focus of this staggering seven bar crawl. Join brand manager and real Dutchman Tal Nadari, along with drinking partner and esteemed LA bartender Marcos Tello. Lucky for you, you can jump in and out of the crawl with interesting and tasty $5 glasses of punch waiting for you at each location.
