Monday evening, First & Hope Supper Club was the host to a crew of half a dozen of the best bartenders in Los Angeles, working with farmers market fresh ingredients to create cocktails for a thirsty crew of enthusiasts and fellow bartenders at the Cocktail All Stars: Farmers Market Edition. Matthew Biancaniello welcomed guests with an amuse cocktail with fresh pomegranate (pictured above).
The bar was literally a cornucopia of ingredients that could be combined in any form to create a drink in a collaboration between guest and bartender. This creativity and the enthusiasm in the crowd made for a great night, both for the bartenders and the lucky customers. Naomi Schimek (pictured below with Juan Sevilla of Big Bar) smoked her own vermouth and the other bartenders brought homemade syrups and infusions, to provide a truly custom experience.
