The Raymond 1886
Location: Pasadena, CA
The Raymond 1886’s craft cocktail menu of this winter season gives you a small taste of the world. All of their current cocktails are inspired by places around the globe. A few of the countries highlighted include Austria, Spain, Japan, Peru, and Africa. Each of their cocktails is expertly crafted with high-quality and house-made ingredients. Their signature Canadian cocktail features Pine Creek, Clement V.S.O.P., St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram, Maple Syrup, Whiskey Barrel Aged Bitters, served on a burned wood coaster.
Jesus Gomez, The Raymond’s resident bartender, works to keep their craft cocktail menu exciting by revamping it twice a year. His dedication and study have given him an “encyclopedic knowledge of the history, techniques, and ingredients that go into a proper cocktail”.
