The Liquid Muse's Little Black Book!
I am very excited to share the first episode of my new online show "The Liquid Muse's Little Black Book," sponsored by Pinky Vodka. Over the coming months, I will share some of my favorite places to raise a glass in Los Angeles, as well as easy-to-follow cocktail tips for you to try at home.
In Episode 1, you are invited for a sneak peek inside downtown LA's hottest new "old-time" speakeasy style bar, The Varnish, tucked inside the back of the historic Cole's French Dip. Eric Alperin shows us his classic bartending techniques as he makes (the perfect!) Manhattan and shares insight into the "ice trend" sweeping high-end cocktail bars. Eric came to LA from NYC, where he worked at the legendary Milk & Honey and Little Branch. We are thrilled that he has teamed with his former boss, cocktail bar mogul Sasha Petraske, to bring this style bar to Southern California.
Big "ups" to Ané Vecchione who filmed and edited hours of footage into an easily digestible 3-minute segment for your viewing pleasure. And, without further ado, step inside the pages of my Little Black Book...
