Our love for clever cocktails and inventive libations by top notch mixologists has made us huge fans of the Black Lab. When we were invited to a tasting of the new menu at Naya Sunset in Silverlake we couldn’t have been more excited to learn the India-inspired cocktails were courtesy of Joel Black (Black Lab mixologist extraordinaire). While the new menu consists of traditional Indian street foods, what really caught our attention was of course the bar menu. Yes, we tried everything. The drinks are truly exotic and pair impeccably with the new food menu.
Drinks range from $10-14 at the Naya Sunset lounge. As biased whisky enthusiasts we are always delighted to find new additions to our repertoire. Ergo Rocky Patel. Chivas 12 year blended Scotch whisky, Laphroig 10 year Islay Scotch whisky, espresso bean infuse Zaya 12 year old rum. It tastes as good as it sounds and leaves your mouth with a delicious spiced aftertaste. If you want something a little more refreshing The Burning Rose is a great way to start off your night. Its made with real silver tequila, fresh lime juice, rosemary, jalapeno, and agave nectar (really reminds us of the Comme Ca cocktails).
