Last weekend, I had the most amazing beverage tasting with Kasey Brazael of Luscious Libations. She's customizing some fun cocktails for one of my upcoming wedding and of course, hand selecting the wine for my clients. So much fun! Kasey is new to the Los Angeles area, but comes with a very long history of restaurant, catering and bar experience, including working at the famous Gramercy Tavern in New York City and her cocktail concoctions are AMAZING! Below is the recipe for the "I Effen Love You" cocktail that she has cooked up for my super edgy bride who is marrying next weekend at the Smog Shoppe in Culver City. Of course she can do something more classic, but my couple gave Kasey a few of their favorite flavors and she went to town on creating a drink all their own. If you are a beverage snob, Kasey and her team is a must have for your next event.
I EFFEN Love You
2 oz. Effen Black Cherry Vodka
1 oz. Organic Black Cherry Syrup
1/2 oz. Fresh Squeezed Organic Lime Juice
Splash of Soda
Splash of Cherry Bitters
She served it on the rocks and garnished it with lime zest. Enjoy!
