Destination Cocktail: Plum Tuckered

At Next Door Lounge

November 04, 2011

Last month Joe Brooke of Next Door Lounge scored as runner-up in L.A.'s Best Bartender competition at Elevate Lounge. Combining a charming, laid-back personality with in-depth knowledge of spirits, Brooke got the judge's attention and held it. Several weeks later, Brooke unveiled his new fall cocktail menu for Next Door Lounge, a list of warm-burning classics made with next-level twists. Take our favorite, the Plum Tuckered, a stylish coupette of green tea-infused gin, tangy lemon, frothy egg white and sweet simple syrup.
