New downtown Mexican restaurant Casa Cocina y Cantina had a press release boasting a menu "unlike any other Mexican restaurant menu in Los Angeles." But we couldn't help but wonder if that held true to its cocktail list as well. So we stopped by on a very chill Wednesday night and met with Billy Fanning, the restaurant's mixologist.

His specialty cocktail menu is a mix of traditional Mexican staples, unique creations and seasonal concoctions and of course we had to try several.

Glancing at the menu, you quickly pick up that the cocktails are primarily comprised of fresh juices, herbs and housemade mixers. Very promising.

Billy had nice back stories about how each cocktail came to be but we knew that how they tasted would be the only story that mattered in the end.
