It has been so friggin’ hot here in LA that a sparkly, bubbly citrus cocktail sounds delicious – as early as lunch.  Gin is a great hot weather liquor as it goes with citrus so well.   This is easy & uses ingredients that are not exotic & goes down like candy.  I used a lemon sugar rim intended for Lemon Drop cocktails but it worked very well.

Lime Gin Fizz

1 cocktail

INGREDIENTS

1/2 ounce fresh lime juice

1/2 ounce simple syrup (I used bottled but recipes for it are HERE)

2 ounces gin

2 ounces seltzer water or club soda

Some sort of sugar for the rim (optional)

Lime wedges for garnish

DIRECTIONS

Wet the glass & dip the rim in sugar.  Shake the lime juice, simple syrup & gin with ice for a good 30 seconds to a minute or more.  Fill the glass with ice & pour the chilled gin mix on top.  Add the seltzer & garnish with lime wedge.

Chug it & make another!

There is a heat wave in Los Angeles this week & cooking is just oppressive. So – I am taking the opportunity to present 60+ restaurants I have visited in the last two years. This is not a complete list & some places here reflect images from multiple visits. I am not going to get into reviewing them but I will post a link if I have blogged about specific places here in the past – and that link will likely have lots of info & more pictures (except for my earliest posts which were pretty simple). They will be listed pretty much in alphabetical order & if there is a website for the place – I will try to supply it by making the name of the place a link to their site.

HERE is the link to Part 1.

HERE is the link to Part 5.

I am also taking this opportunity to post a few of my favorite images that I have taken of restaurants not in Los Angeles –  above.  Enjoy!

There is a heat wave in Los Angeles this week & cooking is just oppressive.  So – I am taking the opportunity to present 60+ restaurants I have visited in the last two years.  This is not a complete list & some places here reflect images from multiple visits.  I am not going to get into reviewing them but I will post a link if I have blogged about specific places here in the past – and that link will likely have lots of info & more pictures (except for my earliest posts which were pretty simple). They will be listed pretty much in alphabetical order & if there is a website for the place – I will try to supply it by making the name of the place a link to their site.  HERE is the link to Part 1.

Below is a place called Cactus Jack’s in Evergreen, CO.   Sorry for the out of area teasers but – hey – maybe you will go to one of these places, too!

OK!  Let’s get started!

Hi everybody!  That is me just above.  And this is the first entry in a several part recap of restaurants I have visited around Los Angeles.  This is not a complete list & some places here reflect images from multiple visits.  I am not going to get into reviewing them but I will post a link if I have blogged about specific places here in the past – and that link will likely have lots of info & more pictures (except for my earliest posts which were pretty simple).   They will be listed pretty much in alphabetical order & if there is a website for the place – I will try to supply it by making the name of the place a link to their site.   The images above are from Millie’s in Silverlake.   The beer below was at La Poubelle – a spot that is too dark to photograph with much success.  There isn’t a spot in this list that I do not recommend highly.  They span the city from East L.A. to Inglewood and all over Hollywood.  I included two spots in Santa Barbara.   It is just too fucking hot to cook this week – so I am using this heat as an opportunity to reflect.  I hope you enjoy this photo retrospective and maybe try out a few new places yourselves!
