David Myers must have heard us grumbling about $14 cocktails with The L.A. Times yesterday. His West Hollywood bistro Comme Ca will start serving a line of fashionista-flavored cocktails next week, inspired to fuel Melrose shopping trips, and set at ten dollars despite their famous labels. Considering what we’ve witnessed nearby shops charging our sisters, the price for Comme Ca’s “boutique” beverages seems somehow almost decent. The nomenclature demonstrates who the core demo is for these drinks. There’s the Maker’s Marc Jacobs giving a finger (of name-brand Bourbon that is) to a traditional Manhattan, a Frederic Fekkai-pirinhia, Caro-libre Herreras, Monique LuLillets, and a Marnitini with red hibiscus syrup. Served from 4-6 p.m., if these don’t put somebody in the mood to spend like a soused sailor, it could at least take some of the sticker shock away from that $240 belt.
