1886 Bar’s Fall Cocktail List

Although the temps may still be in the 80s, it is officially Fall and that means 1886 Bar (1250 South Fair Oaks Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105; 626.441.3136) has rolled out their fall cocktail list. The menu is bold and delicious in flavor, and, as usual, visually works of art.

Everything starts with the Lead In, a selection of three appetizer-style cocktails. The Quick and the Dead has a 12-year Demerara rum, double infused with Stumptown whole coffee beans, alongside a glass of Irish Stout. The Cádiz Cooler, a Marcos Tello creation, is a sherry style cocktail served inside a hollowed-out cucumber, rimmed with Spanish Salt from the province of Cádiz. The entire cocktail is served in a handmade cedar box branded with 1886 on the side. Need to cure your sweet tooth? Order up barman Greg Gertmenian’s Chocolate Cake + Shot.

The next section is called The Drop and has Adam McLean’s Gin n’ Roots, a cocktail inspired by a Bronx-area juice bar opened by rapper Styles P. It has bourbon, fresh carrot juice, muddled ginger root, lime, honey and Apple Jack. Brady  Weise is behind the Pimm’s #10 featuring a Pisco base along with citrus and cucumberand the Late Night Stalker, a version of the classic Collins using celery-infused Akvinta vodka and Absinthe mist.

Next up is the Distortion category which includes ¡Ay Papi! with Plata tequila, mezal, house made tamarind syrup, lime, honey and a blend of cayenne and chile; Flying Lotus, a creation by Peter Lloyd Jones and Mikey Angeles with a cedar-infused bourbon and rye blend, lemon and home made cinnamon bark syrup, finished with a candied lotus root; and the Bonita Applebum with fresh pear, Amaro Nonino, Apple Jack and lemon.
