This was the inventive winner of the LA wide “Raising the Bar” competition.
I’ve raved about Church & State on goop before for it’s mind-blowing drinks and delectable food. It looks like the drinks here have come to a whole new level of amazingness judging by the recipes bartender Shana Street has shared. Owner Yassmin Sarmadi tells me it was the “Raising the Bar” mixology competition in LA that really got them thinking outside the box (or the glass).
3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
3/8 oz simple syrup
3/8 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur crushed ice, as needed
a few strawberries, muddled
a few dashes peach bitters
Stir together the lemon juice, syrup and liquer in a rocks glass. Fill the glass with crushed ice and top with the strawberries and bitters.
