Brite Booze: Craft Cocktails at  MB Post in Manhattan Beach


Hendrick’s Gin with Muddled Cucumbers and Jalapeño

In Love & War: Death in the Afternoon with Tariquet VSOP, Bubbes, Herbsainte, Guava, and Lemon verbena

Vio Vega: Vodka Gimlet with Boyd & Blair, Bergamot, Ginger, Almond, Coconut

Recently voted best brunch by LA Weekly, MB Post gets a lot of recognition for its food and upbeat atmosphere, but I think their bar deserves some praise.  After stopping in for a drink this past weekend, my friend and I literally could not  walk away before trying a few more.  Bartender, Will Shimerman, expertly crafted each cocktail– all of which were home runs.

The Vio Vega was very smooth–made with Pittsburgh-based Boyd & Blair potato vodka.  It is exactly what you would to sip on a block away from the ocean.  I highly recommend the barrel-aged Southern Hospitality cocktail which is the MB Post take on an old-fashioned.  This is the place to step outside your comfort zone and order whiskey even if you are a solely a martini drinker, you won’t regret it.
