When it comes to Sunday brunch, who doesn’t need a bit of the dog that bit ‘ya – followed by a Benedict and a Macchiato!
Revere brings you some of LA’s best brunch cocktails to kick off your next Sunday!
Los Balcones Hollywood’ homage to Peruvian cuisine is so dedicated to Peru’s grape-based spirit that there’s a Pisco Society! Don’t miss the Pisco Sour, Huamani pisco with fresh lime juice, egg whites, and bitters or the Chilcano with Huamani pisco, fresh lime juice, homemade ginger beer & bitters. Classic cocktailers might prefer the restaurant’s twist on the cocktail of all brunch cocktails, Bloody Mary, this time prepared with vodka, tomato, lemon juice, rocoto pepper blended with Peruvian spices.
The Wallace Right in the heart of Culver City, The Wallace captures all the buzz words. Sustainable. Small plates. California. Locally Sourced. Go for the food but stay for the brunch cocktails with kitsch monikers like Morning Sex, (bourbon, passion fruit, chai-fennel syrup, and Peychaud’s) and Early Ace (London Dry Gin, Earl Grey, lemon, and pistachio foam.) The Brunch Punch changes every weekend.
Tanzy If a bit of the bubbly is more your speed, check out the Bottomless Strawberry Mimosa and Uber it home! The classic cocktail is updated with lemon, St. Germain, and One Hope Sparkling Wine. Any brunch menu worth its salt will have a signature bloody. The Maria D’Amalfi pairs San Marzano to-mah-to, clam juice, porcini broth, and house-infused lemon vodka and there’s also the Tanzy Mary with basil-infused vodka.
Bar10 WeHo’s cool bar/pool hall/hang has a killer brunch and some top notch top o’the morn cocktails like the Traditional Bloody Mary but this time with a cayenne-dusted deviled egg and pickled veggies and a Strawberry Basil Rickey with Cointreau, lime juice, muddled strawberry, and basil, topped with club soda.
The Hyde Sunset Kitchen + Cocktails The Hyde’s swanky brunch menu has some pretty wicked cocktails like the PDA with Jim Beam, Applejack, ginger, honey, and egg whites or Lost in Bangkok with Belvedere RED, Thai basil, lime, and ginger ale. The Bloody crowd can choose from Horseradish Bloody Mary with horseradish infused Ketel One, tomato + carrot juices, the BBQ Bloody Mary with Bacon (Yup, Bacon!) infused Ketel One, BBQ sauce, and Cajun Spices; or the Verde Maria with tomatillo, cilantro, mint, and Serrano. Too many decisions for a sunny Sunday? Go for the $20 Bloody Mary Tasting!
