La Descarga's Steve Livigni by Caroline on Crack

La Descarga's Steve Livigni fixes up a really tasty Daquiri.

CORRECTION: The menu launches tomorrow night! La Descarga in East Hollywood debuts its new winter drink menu! Of course the classics and some crowd favorites remain, like Hemingway’s Daquiri and Tapping the Admiral, which LD owner Steve Livigni says is “now barrel aged for two weeks in whiskey barrels and served neat, exponentially better.”

Sadly, however, no more Brisa de Oaxaca or any other mescal drink on the list for that matter. But there is a total of 10 classic cocktails and 11 house cocktails to choose from.

Here are some compelling options:

  • The Castilian: Bacardi Anejo, Peychaud bitters, sugar, Aguardiente rinse
  • The Jam Session: Rhum JM Blanc 80 Proof, lemon juice, honey syrup
  • The Golden Triangle: Battavia Arrack, Averna Amaro, Gran Classico, angostura orange bitters
  • Imperial Prince of Wales: Hennessey VSOP Cognac, Benedictine, Cassia rum bitters, sugar, sparkling wine
  • L.A. Lupe: Leblon Cachaca, lime juice, St. Vincents Coconut Goodness, Velvet Falernum, tonic

Time to throw on a purty dress and hit my fave rum bar!
