Hatchi Mix: Preview

Devon Espinosa

Mixologist Devon Espinosa of the Tasting Kitchen heads up an all-new cocktails series at Breadbar for cocktailians.

For those familiar with Breadbar’s Hatchi series where they bring in celebrity chefs once a month for a night of $8 plates, the Hatchi Mix series works the same way. There are 8 cocktails for $8 each.

Tonight, head over to Breadbar in Century City to taste Devon’s take on pre-Prohibition libations.

My favorites were the Hemingway, Last Word and Moscow Mule. The Hemingway is how a daiquiri should be. The Last Word and Moscow Mule were very amazing to me. I loved how Devon came up with a ginger for the Mule. He strains steeped ginger and adds a little soda instead of using ginger beer. The Sazerac is very carefully made as is the Manhattan and Negroni. I didn’t try the Martinez or Pisco Sour but I’m sure they are wonderful based on the other masterful cocktails I tried.
