Where: Ox & Son, Santa Monica
What: Okay, this may look like a cocktail. It may even be a cocktail. (Shocker!) But it’s also brunch. OK, actually it’s the “Bartender’s Breakfast” at Ox & Son, which has all the elements of a hearty breakfast: orange juice, maple syrup, and egg (in the form of egg white)… and bourbon, because that’s key too. All shaken up and garnished with bacon. A meal in a glass, just like a power smoothie. Except not at all.
Pair it with: Chocolate Bacon Bourbon Pancakes… because this Bartender’s Breakfast needs something to soak it up.
