The drink of Summer 2017 has been dubbed the Aperol Spritz. Hailing from Northern Italy and Inspired by Austrian Spritzers, the Aperol Spritz is a classic summer drink, despite the cooler region where it originates. This year, Aperol Spritz seem to be trending more than usual and creative mixologists are creating new riffs for the old classic by mixing up the fruit juices and liquors used. Whether you want an Aperol Spritz or already have a favorite drink or like to test the imagination of your bartender, Pasadena has a plethora of cocktail bars where you can get your drink on. Check out a few of the most luxurious spots to beat the heat with a cocktail treat.
Bull & Barrel is tucked next to Alexander’s Steakhouse. There’s a patio, fire pits and an amazing dedication to curated menu of bar bites that goes with some of the best cocktails in LA. The Pasadena bar has bespoke cocktails named after its bartenders and exclusive cocktails accented by gold leaf. Try something new or tell the bartender what you like to discover an old favorite. Bull & Barrel was named one of Thrillist’s Best Cocktail Bars in LA and seems to be living up to its reputation.
The Tap Room at The Langham is a luxuriously casual spot to relax on the patio or in the bar. The extensive menu has craft cocktails as well as standard favorites. There is a fairly large selection of beers, wines, sparkling wines, and liquors from all over the world. Check the website for period special events, like a Macallan flight and tasting. The prices are higher than your average pub, but it’s still a good way to taste the good life without fully breaking the bank and the selection of bar snacks is nearly as expansive as the drink selection.
Vertical Wine Bistro is another good place to indulge. The cocktail menu is well organized according to your liquor preference and there are also wine and beer flights and other offerings available. And of course, elegant bites to go with it. Check it out for happy hour or date night.
