The Liquid Muse Cocktail event @ BOA Steakhouse (Los Angeles)

Outside BOA

Recently, I was lucky enough attend a cocktail club event hosted by Natalie of The Liquid Muse at the BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood.

After some initial introductions amongst the guests of the event, we were given some passed hor d'oeuvres courtesy of BOA Steakhouse

Along with the snacks, we were presented with 2 types of cocktails special for the evening. One was a gin based drink with rhubarb and strawberries, while the second cocktail for the evening was a Manhattan (whiskey based) with cherry liqueur and dark tea.

Personally, I preferred the gin based drink as I'm more familiar with this type of cocktail compared to the Manhattan. I have to admit, it was the first time I've tried the Manhattan, and even though I'm not a huge fan of whiskey based drinks usually, I actually enjoyed this concoction. The tea flavor was noticeable and the cherry liqueor was a nice touch to finish it off. The Gin drink was a great drink on a summer day. It was quite refreshing, and definitely a great drink to finish the night off. I could have easily drank 2-3 of the cocktail. Delicious!
