I was ecstatic when I found out about the new Cocktail Lab, a shop in Hollywood for anyone who wants to play mixologist at home! Me, me!! It didn’t take any convincing when my good friend Jen asked if I wanted to check it out with her! We were both impressed and enjoyed having Eric share some of his mixology knowledge with us. I was extremely fascinated with the intense selection of bitters. No, really… have you ever heard of gumbo bitters?! Or even Texmex bitters? They also have some of the spiciest bitters I’ve ever tasted too. I enjoyed being able to taste test them all before buying because truly, I think anyone should be able to taste gumbo bitters! We also indulged in some terrific simple syrup tasting too. The unique flavors are sourced from boutique and local companies and they’re all so good. Of course, they’re stocked with awesome bar essentials and great gifts too. If you’re in the area, it’s definitely worth it to stop in. They’re located a few doors down from Sweet Rose!!
