Move over, regular mimosas and Bloody Marys. Bottomless brunch cocktails are getting fun, flavorful new twists at weekend spots all over town - and it's not just because everything tastes better when there's a seemingly endless amount of it. Here's where to find unique brunch drinks this weekend. Let the good times flow!
Shandy: The newly reopened Must wine bar brings bottomless shandies to Downtown LA, here made with Craftsman Brewing’s Heavenly Hefe, fresh lemon and ginger juice and Boylan’s lemon-lime soda. It’s super thirst quenching on warm summer-like weekends, like the one coming up.
Kir Royale: La Poubelle in Hollywood’s Franklin Village serves French fare for weekend brunch, which means a kir royale (creme de cassis and sparkling wine) is in order. $15 per person lets them flow for as long as you can handle it.
Lychee Bellini: Richard Sandoval’s Zengo at Santa Monica Place is known for it’s all-you-can-eat brunches, which come with your choice of drink. The lychee bellini, made with lychee puree and sparkling sake, goes along with Latin-Asian dishes like bacon fried rice, Peking duck chilaquiles and steak and egg tostadas. The mimosas come with the $35 endless brunch deal.
Jallab Mimosa: Carousel adds a unique twist to the regular mimosa with jallab, a syrup made with carob, dates, grape molasses and rose water. Glendale’s festive restaurant touts itself as having the first Lebanese-American brunch in LA, so you’ll find dishes like sumac eggs in cocotte, za’atar eggs Benedict, and basterma and eggs. The bottomless mimosas are $9.95 per person.
Blackberry Sangria: West Hollywood’s Vintage Enoteca wine bar serves its fruity sangria at Saturday and Sunday brunch for $12 per person with the purchase of at least one food item. It’s pretty swell with things like bacon and egg mac and cheese, or bruschetta with brie, sausage and a soft egg. 11 AM-4 PM.
