LA is the land of luxury, abundance, and fame. If you’re luckily enough to open a bar in this town you better be able stay on the cutting edge of the cocktail world. That’s why Los Angeles consistently produces innovative and delicious drinks year after year. Here are some of the top cocktails to check out:


Best Cocktail in LA:
Mortini @
Morton’s
735 South Figueroa St
A pure legend. The Mortini is an unusual and delectable treat for any occasion. Available in a range of flavors and styles, it’s just one of those things you’ve got to try.



Best Cocktail in LA:
Sake Margarita @
En Sushi
11651 Santa Monica Blvd
En Sushi, a gourmet Japanese restaurant with two locations - one in Los Feliz and the other in West Hollywood - is an unlikely place for a margarita, but I assure you, it’s one of LA’s best. Sake, lime juice, tequila, and a few other secret ingredients seems to live in perfect harmony creating a unique flavor. Very yum.



Best Cocktail in LA:
The Mai Tai @ Trader Vic's
9876 Wilshire Blvd

A staple of Los Angeles beverage history is the Mai Tai from Trader Vic’s at the Beverly Hilton. This tropical rum-based drink has circulated the bars of the world, but at Trader Vic’s they take extra special care in preserving its legendary taste.



Best Cocktail in LA:
Apple Martini @
Lola's
945 N Fairfax Ave
The ubiquitous and lovable Apple Martini, sometimes referred to as an Appletini, originated in the one and only Lola’s of West Hollywood. Doing it for the longest and perfecting its taste, Lola’s makes an apple martini better than any other you’ll find. Like eating a Philly cheesestake in Haiwai, it just isn’t the same when it’s outside of the homeland.



Best Cocktail in LA:
Blood and Sand @
Tiki-Ti
4427 W Sunset Blvd
This strong, fruity drink is popular in LA not just for its delicious taste, but also for its history and reputation in the Tiki-Ti bar of Sunset Junction. Invented for the film “Blood and Sand” about bullfighting, customers often order it by going, “Torro! Torro! Ole!” In the Tiki-Ti bar, the staff and patrons get serious about their drinks – many of them having their own chants and cheers.



Best Cocktail in LA:
Mrs. Santa @
Allston Yacht Club
1320 Echo Park Ave
Get ready for a gift from above! A sexy mix of Chambord, peppermint vodka, and a squeeze of lemon from the trendy Allston Yacht Club in Echo Park. Mrs. Santa embodies the spirit of Christmas in Los Angeles the most – a blend of traditional holiday peppermint, with a splash of beach weather!



Best Cocktail in LA:
Café Romano @
Dominick's Restaurant
8715 Beverly Blvd
A drink for the rare cold and rainy days of LA. Made with nutmeg, cream, Sambuca Romano, and Tia Maria. Made in Dominick’s in West Hollywood, this drink is as relaxing as the area. Close your eyes, take a sip, and imagine falling leaves and wool scarves. Then, open them, grab your yoga mat, and head for the beach.
