Big Bar / Los Feliz
“All I have been drinking, cocktail wise, at home are martinis. As a bonus, you can even make a big batch of this and add the correct amount of water to dilute the volume of the cocktail batch by 18% and throw it in a bottle in the fridge, so you don’t even have to stir over ice when you want a martini! Cheers and stay healthy!”
– Big Bar Beverage Manager Cari Hah

Pretty Dirty / Eagle Rock
“We love making cocktails at home, but we have to consider what the average drinker has in their home bar – we’re lucky to be stoked up with the best spirits, bitters, vermouths, amari, sherry etc etc that we can find, but it isn’t all necessary. Here’s a recipes from our Vol 2 menu that anyone can make at home.”
– Tom (Owner, Pretty Dirty) and Liam (Bar Director, Pretty Dirty)
Pretty Dirty’s Whiskey Sour
Simple – The Dive Bar Whiskey Sour,
a name we have given to a whiskey sour served with no egg-white and on the rocks. This is definitely not a negative thing – some of our favorite nights out have been at dive bars drinking simple sours and if ever there was a time for a quick, well balanced and boozy sour, its now.

Shake briefly with ice,
