Everyone who’s ever laid down their thoughts on West L.A.’s Freddy Smalls agrees that it’s a damn fine place to get a proper buzz on. The moody space is perfect for a dram, the nineties hip-hop just our speed, and David Fleisher’s drinks are engaging but never fussy. Toasting to summer, Fleischer has a new menu of cocktails designed to inject some refreshment into the muggy months, including drinks like an Old Fashioned made with pickled peaces and Buffalo Trace bourbon, a Swedish Island with coconut water, orange blossom syrup, lime, and Kanon Organic vodka, and a changing roster of daily cocktails like a Pimm’s Cup shrub employing pickled mulberries, gin, cucumber, and lemon. Check out Smalls’ full new cocktail selection and some sample of the daily drinks below.
