LA Water Cocktail
When it comes to the battle of OC versus LA, at least we don't have a cocktail named after our murky drinking water.
LA Water will be made differently from bar to bar, but when it comes down to it, it's just a sweeter version of a Long Island Iced Tea.
Typically made with a mix of equal parts vodka, gin, white tequila, white rum, triple sec, Midori melon liqueur, Chambord raspberry liqueur, and a splash of sweet and sour mix, LA Water is not for lightweight drinkers. It gets straight to the point, and tastes just like iced tea (especially if you add a squeeze of lemon).
So go ahead and order your LA Water or recreate it at home, but be sure to cheers to OC and our perfectly clear drinking water.
