Eric Alperin built and co-owns this cocktail lounge in downtown LA, which is hidden inside of Cole’s restaurant (it’s through a secret door at the back). The vibe here is intimate and the drinks are crafted by expert bartenders including Eric himself. Order a sandwich to go at the restaurant and then make your way into the bar.
Stir everything but the cream and chocolate together with a few ice cubes and then strain into a chilled coupe glass. Gently spoon on the whipped cream and garnish the chocolate.
