Historic Core Cocktail

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

John Coltharp created this drink for a 2008 contest held by L.A. bartender Marcos Tello. All entries had to be named after sub-districts in the city's downtown. The Historic Core Cocktail, made with rye and apple brandy, honors the area where Coltharp lived then.
