Devon Espinosa Will Head Up The Bar Program at Ink.

New, 16 comments

After three years spent tending bar at 1633 Abbot Kinney (from AK to Tasting Kitchen), mixologist Devon Espinosa decamped just two weeks ago to begin working on his cocktail program at Michael Voltaggio's Ink., slated to open in about two weeks. Espinosa describes his 10-12 libations as "rooted in the classics with slight modifications to modernize them." He continues on to say, "If we can do it ourselves, we will," so expect house-made tonics, cordials, and eventually bitters. Cocktails will definitely change seasonally with ingredients sourced from the farmers market, but nothing too sweet because his drinks are created with food in mind. Voltaggio's modern Los Angeles cuisine to be specific. For example, Espinosa's take on a classic Daiquiri calls for house-made Falernum (toasted almonds, spices) plus rum and lime. More to come.
