1886 Bar Celebrates Five Years with New Fall and Winter Cocktail List

When 1886 Bar was first launched in the back room of The Raymond Restaurant in 2010, the intent was to be at the forefront of the Southern California craft cocktail movement. Since its incarnation, some of the most celebrated bartenders have put their stamp (and signature recipes) on what has become one of California’s most buzzed about drinking destinations. Now, on the brink of their 5 Year Anniversary, 1886 Bar is being catapulted into another level with the celebration of their new Fall & Winter Cocktail Menu that will once again redefine, reimagine and reinvigorate the way we see craft cocktails as we currently know them!“After 5 years, we are proud to say we have created over 300 published cocktails. Not to mention the countless recipes that remain off-list, as well as our Dealers Choice cocktails, that have turned into regularly requested libations,” says Head Barman Peter Lloyd Jones. “Because there is so much rich history within these walls, and so much written about historic Raymond Hotel, we wanted to do a literary based menu. Each cocktail tells a story and relates to literature in some way.”1886 Bar’s Fall & Winter Cocktail Menu kicks off with Maggie The Cat, a cocktail created by Bartenders Casey Levental and Ned Kirby. Inspired by the character Margaret in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams, this creation packs a punch combining gin, house-made Curaçao, Becherovka, Amaro Nonino, grapefruit, orange and lemon juices with a cherry dropped into the center. And just like Maggie the Cat, each sip has a different and unexpected layer of character.Next, Bartender Adam Vaughn and The Raymond’s Pastry Chef, Eliot Pardo have partnered up to create Kafka On The Shore. Crafted with Japanese pear infused Tito’s vodka, almond avocado milk, lime, simple syrup and egg white with a GIN-gerbread cookie garnish, this creamy cocktail inspired by The Wind Up Bird Chronicle will have you turn on, tune in, and drop out! And just like the Murakami masterpiece, “true enlightenment comes only to those who finish it.”“The Kafka on the Shore is one the more interesting cocktails on our menu,” says Jones. “It requires an Avocado Almond Milk which Vaughn slaved away on in order to allow it to be palatable enough to drink, and was a collaboration with our new Pastry Chef Eliot Pardo.”The literary fun does not stop there, as the Robinson Crusoe (another Vaughn cocktail) is a combination of the Zombie and IPA beer; two unlikely components that parallel the novel’s premise of a defiant British man’s seafaring relationship with the Caribbean. Archer IPA, El Dorado 12-year aged rum, Hamilton 151 Overproof Demerara rum, lime juice, pineapple juice, grenadine, lime syrup and Angostura bitters come together to become the ideal drink for anyone stranded on a deserted Caribbean island who has nothing but beer, rum and a lot of time on their hands. Levental and Pardo join forces once again, creating the El Padrino. This Mexican variation of the classic Godfather is the perfect digestif cocktail with Dulce Vida Añejo tequila, Velvet Falernum, Nux Alpina walnut liqueur and mole bitters that is served with a side of bacon-candied walnuts.Jesus Gomez makes an appearance with several cocktails on 1886 Bar’s Fall & Winter Cocktail Menu: Life in the Woods is a complex interplay between French rum and Kentucky Bourbon with the seasonal scent of sitting fireside combining Elijah Craig, Clement V.S.O.P., Bowmore 15, Averna, tobacco bitters and vanilla syrup, reminding you that truth can be found in literature and equally in nature. The La Divina Comedia, drawing its name from Beyond the Gates of Hell, is a nine ingredient variation of an Old Fashioned with Angostura and orange bitters, brown sugar cube, Nocino, Elijah Craig 12, Balvenie 12, Black Hamilton rum, 151 Hamilton rum and a flamed orange disc. In this boozy spinoff that invokes lust with the flamed orange oils and a black Jamaican rum, you will be suspended in a state of perfect balance between the peat and oak notes of Kentucky and Scottish whiskeys before being led through the Paradise that is the sweet sip and perfect texture of vanilla and green walnuts. Now that is quite the journey!Some of the world’s greatest mysteries remain unsolved with no single theory prevailing, and Gomez’s Otorten encapsulates a host of classified threats combining Rittenhouse 100-Proof Rye, with the strength of a Yeti, Bowmore 15, with the gravitational pull of a fleet of UFOs and Laphroaig 10, with enough firepower to warm you in an Avalanche. All the paranormal powers of Russia’s most ominous mountain in one Old Fashioned. Case closed.Treacherous as the Underworld, Gomez and Vaughn’s Hades proves to be an unforgiving spicy cocktail that will mellow even the fieriest of three headed beasts, mixing up triple chili infused Mezcal, spiced rum, lime, agave, mango and a chili salted rim. From the heat of the Underworld to the depths of Winterfell, the 1886 Bar Fall & Winter Cocktail Menu gets even “cooler” with Winter Is Coming (created by Mikey Angeles & Vaughn); a sensational seasonal sipper with muddled blueberries, lemon, passion fruit, Velvet Falernum, Diplomatico, Smith & Cross, Martinique Blue and “Rosemary Weirwoods Forest.”No literary menu would be complete without including F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, and here Levental shines with the I’m Doing Well Thanks For Asking. It is in this cocktail that Richter’s Bourbon, Smith & Cross rum, Maraschino liqueur and Carpano Antica vermouth come together as an ode to Mr. Gatsby, with a spin on the Manhattan, a drink associated with the upper crust, combining spirits and liqueurs associated with both ends of the social spectrum.Nothing wrong with a little “duel” now and then, which is why the Hamilton Duel emerges with El Dorado 12-year Rum, Glen Garioch 12 year, Highland Scotch Whiskey, Linie Aquavit, Amaro Montenegro and cynar. One thing is for certain while sipping down this cocktail, your fate will be similar to Alexander Burr…you will just “die” over it!Finishing out the cocktail list is yet, another collaboration; this time, from Marcos Tello and Gomez. Tello, of Tello-Demarest Liquid Assets, played a large role in the creation of 1886 Bar as the opening Cocktail Consultancy. The Danza de los Tejorones/1886 Salidito is a supple sipper with Pasilla chile infused El Silencio Mezcal combined with clover honey, fresh lime juice and Pasilla Chile Spiced Blend that is shaken frothy and served iced cold, from Oaxaca, with love.“Not every story has to be written,” says Tello. “Different towns from Oaxaca still represent stories through “Danzas,” most of these towns still practice this “Mixteco” language. All stories have different Danzas, which is why we wanted to introduce this cocktail.”For those familiar with 1886 Bar, it just would not be an anniversary without a celebration. And for this, 1886 Bar certainly delivers. From Tuesday, November 17th, 2015 through Saturday, November 21st, 2015, 1886 Bar will be serving up liquid specials for only $5.00 that include the Don Carlo Old Fashioned with whiskey, scotch, Cio Ciaro, Angostura bitters, orange bitters with an orange peel, Maui Brewery Bikini Lager and Perrin Cotes Du Rhone & Rouge. If that is not enough, they will also be welcoming the return of several of 1886 Bar’s finest original bartenders with their most reputable signature cocktails that have left a mark over the last five years.Closing out the celebration will be a very special evening on Saturday, November 21st, 2015 from 7:00 pm to closing. Two of 1886 Bar’s originals, Garrett McKechnie and Laura Lindsay, will be behind the stick, along with two additional satellite bars run by current 1886 Bar bartenders. In addition to the magic that will be the reminiscing of great bar staff both past and present, Executive Chef Tim Guiltinan has also prepared $8.00 Bar Bite Specials that will include Chicken & Serrano Ham Croquettes with harissa yogurt, Roasted Octopus with Korean-style sauce, Shrimp Toast Mini Sandwiches, Kentucky Fried Quail with wasabi honey and Prince Edward Island Mussels with Angry Lady Sauce.1886 Bar Anniversary – Original Guest Bartender Schedule:Tuesday, November 17th, 2015: Bartender Brady Weiss serving the Lebowski Achiever with vodka, crème de cacao, stout and cream.Wednesday, November 18th, 2015: Bartender Greg Gertmenian serving the Rye Reverse with rye, dry vermouth, Maraschino liqueur, housemade curacao, orange bitters, angostura bitters with orange and lemon peel.Friday, November 20th, 2015: Consultant and Bartender Marcos Tello serving the Saladito and Medicina Latina made with mezcal, housemade honey syrup, fresh lime juice topped with chile salt.Saturday, November 21st, 2015: Bartenders Garrett McKechnie and Laura Lindsay serving the California Buck with tequila, fresh strawberries, fresh lime juice, housemade Demerara syrup, fresh ginger and soda.Although not every story has to be written, 1886 Bar’s story is most certainly one to be told, as it continues to unfold in an always unexpectedly surprising way. “1886 Bar has a strong rooted tradition in quality product and hospitality,” says Lloyd-Jones. “It is exciting to hear feedback that we are keeping the spirit alive and well. The bartenders before us laid the foundation, and we are carrying their legend on. I believe each year we continue our story through our mentality of always striving for a better guest experience, and, of course, improving the notion of what a cocktail should be.”1886 Bar is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Thursday from 5:00 pm to Midnight and Friday and Saturday from 5:00 pm to 2:00 am.

USG to offer free hygiene and testing products

first_imgUSG senators in a meeting. Photo by Cathy Liang | Daily TrojanStudents will soon have access to free testing materials and hygiene products thanks to an Undergraduate Student Government initiative. USG plans to provide free “blue books” and Scantron forms used in exams beginning next week, and free menstrual products may be available as soon as next semester, according to USG President Austin Dunn. The USG Facebook page will be updated with the pickup locations for blue books and Scantron forms on campus once they are confirmed.Marina Hrovat, director of wellness affairs for USG, has spearheaded the effort to implement free menstrual products on campus. She worked with USG to conduct a trial run of free menstrual products to gauge the idea’s popularity.A USG poll taken during the trial run found that 99 percent of student respondents believed that free menstrual products are necessary.Dunn explained that while products like Scantron forms and blue books may be affordable — most cost less than $1 at the USC Bookstore — they pose an inconvenience to students if they are not provided by the school.“There was no reason, whatsoever, that students should have needed to pay for a school supply that is required for exams,” Dunn said.While providing free blue books and Scantron forms is imminent, the same cannot be said for menstrual products. Dunn is aiming for implementation of these products in the coming months, but said the process is not entirely under USG’s control.“The goal [for free menstrual product availability] is next semester,” Dunn said. “I cannot put a hard deadline or prediction on when this will be completed because we do rely on outside companies to make these products free. We need to figure out if this is going to be a sponsorship or partnership with an outside company or if they will be provided by the University.”Dunn stressed his administration’s belief in keeping costs outside of tuition at a minimum, and that this was the primary motivation behind these measures. “College affordability and tuition transparency, those issues being an overarching topic, are things that [USG Vice President] Morgan [Monahan] and I have talked about from the beginning,” Dunn said. “We recognize how much of a burden finances can be at this University and we are just trying to meet that need in the best way that we can.”last_img read more

Kyle Busch passes Richard Petty with 201st NASCAR national series win

first_imgKyle Busch is in a league of his own.With the 33-year-old driver’s victory in the TruNorth Global 250 Gander Outdoors Truck Series at Martinsville Speedway on Saturday, he now has 201 wins in the three NASCAR national series, passing Richard Petty for first all time. NASCAR results at California: Kyle Busch secures 200th career victory after overcoming penalty Busch’s number is a bit different than Petty’s as the NASCAR legend’s 200 wins all came in the Cup Series, but the number itself is staggering when you realize the next closest man to Busch and Petty is David Pearson, who has 106 career victories. It’s an amazing accomplishment, which really drives home the point of how good Busch has been throughout his career.With his win on Saturday, Busch now has seven victories this season across all three series including a near sweep of a trifecta at Las Vegas, two wins in Phoenix and six wins in his last eight races. Busch’s 201 wins include 94 in the Xfinity Series, 54 in the Truck series and 53 in the Cup series. Related Newslast_img read more

Cannot give quota for Muslims, says Maharashtra government

first_imgThe Maharashtra government has once again ruled out reservations for Muslims.Speaking during a debate on a calling attention motion raised by the Opposition, Minorities Development Minister Vinod Tawde ruled out reservation for the community on religious grounds, citing various court rulings.The community is already receiving benefits under the Other Backward Class category and there was no need for a religion-based reservation, the Minister said.The issue was raised in the Council on Friday by members of the Opposition. Allegations flew on both sides, with each claiming to have done much for the community.Leader of the Congress Sharad Ranpise said the community must be given the promised 5% reservation in jobs and educational institutions.In response, the Minister asked what was the need for the community to have reservation on religious grounds when it was anyway getting benefits under various schemes. “The government is sensitive towards the demands of all communities. But there is no provision in existing laws to give reservation on the basis of religion,” he said. “What has the Congress done for the community when it was in the power? At least our government has remained committed to the development of all sections and classes of the society.”The minister’s dismissal of the motion agitated the Opposition members, who entered the well of the House. The commotion forced the Chairman to call off proceedings for some time.Mr. Tawde said the Congress is cornered after its recent defeat at the hands of the Vanchit BahujanAghadi in the Lok Sabha elections. “This alliance — of Dalits and Muslims — has hurt the Congress the most. It is trying to make up for that.” In the winter session of the legislature last year, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis too had ruled out reservation for Muslims on religious grounds citing Supreme Court and High Court rulings. Muslim legislators had then alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government was deliberately scuttling quota demands for the community, which was granted reservation by the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party. The 5% reservation granted to the community by the Congress-NCP in 2014 was struck down by the courts along with the ordinance that had cleared 16% quota to theMarathas.last_img read more

Clutch Castro carries TNT to tie Finals series at 2-2

Both teams gave their best today and it’s nice that we ended up with the win,” said coach Nash Racela. “All we did, really, was just to tie the series.”Seemingly inspired by his laboring wife Kristy in the United States, hulking TNT import Joshua Smith frustrated the Beermen frontline and racked 20 markers, 15 boards, and two dimes as he imposed his presence in the paint.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutRoger Pogoy also recaptured his shooting touch and fired 14 points on a 6-of-9 sniping from the field, on top of three rebounds to bounce back from his two scoreless outings.Ranidel de Ocampo chipped in 13 markers, five rebounds, and three dimes while Troy Rosario had his best outing in the championship series with 13 points, three boards, and three assists. Game 5 is on Friday, still at Smart Araneta Coliseum.Racela said that the TNT players were motivated seeing Chris Ross and Charles Rhodes bag the individual plums earlier in the night.“After they got their awards, I huddled the team and just told them, ‘Let them get all the individual awards and let’s get the team awards.’ For us that’s the more important thing,” he said.Winning the Best Import award earlier, Rhodes did not go home happy as he hit the showers early after getting ejected with 1:08 left in the fourth period. He led San Miguel with 22 points and eight rebounds.Alex Cabagnot scored 18 markers, six boards, and five assists, while Marcio Lassiter shot 1-of-8 from beyond the arc and chipped in 14 points and seven rebounds.ADVERTISEMENT It was a night to forget for Ross, who earlier was feted with the Best Player of the Conference award, but was limited to just eight markers, five boards, four assists, and two steals.Foul-riddled all game long, June Mar Fajardo also struggled in the tiff as he finished with 13 points and nine rebounds in the loss.The Scores:TNT 102 – Smith 20, Castro 17, Pogoy 14, Rosario 13, De Ocampo 13, Garcia 10, Tautuaa 6, Rosales 3, Reyes 3, Williams 2, Semerad 1, Carey 0.SAN MIGUEL 97 – Rhodes 22, Cabagnot 18, Lassiter 14, Fajardo 13, Santos 12, Ross 8, De Ocampo 4, Tubid 3, Heruela 3, Espinas 0, Semerad 0, McCarthy 0, Van Opstal 0, Agovida 0.Quarters: 27-24, 49-47, 73-76, 102-97.

Though Hes Still Battling Cancer Stuart Scott of ESPN

Stuart Scott, the ESPN host who is battling a rare form of cancer, posted on Twitter that rumors that he has been placed in hospice are false.His tweet read: “Rumor bout me in hospice. Not True. Airball. Swing & a miss. I continue treatment for C & missed some work but Hospice? No. Fighting? YES!”This summer, Scott—known for coining phrases like “Cool as the other side of the pillow”—gave a heart-wrenching speech at the ESPY Awards when he accepted the Jimmy V Award.Scott, 49, has been battling cancer in his stomach for seven years. He had his appendix removed and endured chemotherapy and radiation, and yet the cancer continues to return.Last month, Scott was greeted to an enormous ovation at the North Carolina Tar Heels’ Midnight Madness to kick off the basketball season. Scott attended UNC.“When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer,” Scott said then. “You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.”He said he is encouraged to battle against the disease primarily because of his two daughters.During Scott’s acceptance of the Jimmy V Perseverance Award, he said:“I listened to what Jim Valvano said 21 years ago, the most poignant seven words ever uttered in any speech anywhere: ‘Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.’ Those great people didn’t. Coach Valvano didn’t. So to be honored with this, I now have a responsibility to also not ever give up. I’m not special. I just listened to what the man said.”His strength in the face of the disease has been admirable. He has missed chunks of time from work as he deals with treatment. read more

Klopp brushes aside Fabinhos transfer talk

first_imgLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has squashed transfer speculations linking summer recruit Fabinho to join Serie A giants Milan or Juventus in January.Juve and Milan are huge admirers of Fabinho and both want to reinforce their midfield options with the former Monaco ace.Klopp said at a Press conference according to Football Italia: “He was ever one for the future. Is he settling? Yes. He played and he did well, so it’s all good.“Now is coming up the most intense period of the year, of the whole season; it’s unbelievable how many games we have now. That’s good, we knew that before.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“He used the time to adjust to what we want him to do. That was really good. The last games he played were pretty much all good or better. So, all fine.“Of course he will not leave. I don’t talk about transfers but if you want to ask, nobody leaves here.“That would be completely crazy – he doesn’t want to, it’s only the crazy world out there that people, if they don’t play in the last five games, immediately open kind of a transfer market.

McCain Thornberry to Continue Talks over Defense Bill

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) and his House counterpart, Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), are expected to continue negotiations over the fiscal 2016 defense authorization bill during Congress’ August recess with the goal of completing a conference report in September.“We’re not going to stay in town, but there are phones and all kinds of ways of communicating and engaging,” McCain said.The two committee leaders planned to meet Thursday night to see if they could make progress on some of the most contentious issues separating the two sides, reported CQ Roll Call. Differences over military benefits have proven to be among the negotiation’s most difficult hurdles, as the Senate version embraces cost-saving proposals to slow the rate of increase in service members’ basic allowance for housing and raise Tricare prescription co-pays that the House rejects.Thornberry recently has offered a compromise regarding the proposed increase in co-pays for prescriptions, reported Politico.“The House is willing to consider modest Tricare co-pay adjustments, but only enough to prevent a point of order on the Senate floor related to the retirement system,” according to a memo Thornberry sent to his Republican committee members. “They would be roughly 30 percent of the Senate proposal. The House is unwilling to accept 100 percent of proposed increases,” the memo states.The conference committee also needs to resolve differences in the how the two versions replace the 20-year retirement benefit with a 401(k)-style savings plan that all personnel could take advantage of. The Senate bill would pay for the cost of the changes upfront, while the House bill does not.last_img read more
