Destination: Cocktail

Rock & Rose by Ryan Magarian

April 06, 2012

It's the weekend before Coachella and you're already plotting where and when you'll make your designated driver stop on your way there. A good place to start would be Ra Pour, Rancho Cucamonga's slick lounge and global cuisine haven, with cocktails created by mixology heavy hitter, Ryan Magarian. Take the appropriately named Rock & Rose (did Magarian know you were heading to a music festival?!), made with vodka, earthy apple cider, a hint of rose essence and fragrant Lillet Rouge, this drink is so light and pleasing that you just might write a song about it.
