When someone you know gets her original cocktails featured on the menu of the bar she tends...you go and you drink.  

Dana Cape, of Bar|Kitchen downtown, is celebrating a first. Three of her original cocktails are being featured on the menu for DineLA Restaurant Week...and lucky for you...the rest of the winter season.  I know Cape as an actress, but, can now say that she is one hell of a mixologist.  Beware, her threats are growing.

Her specialities include Fizzy LiftingDana's Cape and Lost at Sea.  Each has it's own special identity and unique flavors.

Fizzy Lifting: Bubbles, Rum, Lemon, Egg White, Coconut White Tea

Dana's Cape:  Thyme-Infused Aged Tequila, Mezcal, Peach, Lime, Chili Salt

Lost at Sea:  Scotch Two Ways, PX Sherry, Salt Water, Orange Aromatics

My personal favorite was Fizzing Lifting...because I'm a sucker for froth and coconut!  It was delicious and easy to sip. The ingredients swam together effortlessly.  

I'm no cocktail expert, but I was impressed with Cape's craft, knowledge, and imagination.  Her personality infused her creations and tasted wonderful at the same time.  You best get yourself to one of her barstools!

Happy Drinking!
