New Happy Hour: Copa d'Oro's $5 Classic Cocktails

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

New Santa Monica bar, Copa d'Oro, has kicked off its new happy hour featuring a "happy depression menu." So now you can enjoy some of their fabulous market-fresh cocktails for only $5! And we're not talking the sort of drinks you usually find at happy hours around the city. No apple martinis or mixed well cocktails, but actual vintage favorites.

Just some of the cocktails on the 12-drink happy hour menu after the jump...

* Aviation: Gin, maraschino liqueur, fresh lemon juice
* Dark & Stormy: Matusalem dark rum, fresh lime juice, homemade ginger beer
* Gold Rush: Bourbon, homemade honey syrup, fresh lemon juice
* Jack Rose: Applejack, fresh lime juice, homemade grenadine
* Pisco Sour: Pisco, fresh lime juice, pasteurized egg white
* Ward 8: Bourbon, homemade grenadine, fresh lemon juice, fresh orange juice

You can also enjoy the yummy Bread Bar paninis (ham and cheese, turkey, tuna, PB&J, Nutella) at happy hour prices of $4-$6 instead of the usual $6-$9. If for some reason cocktails don't do it for you, Dos Equis and Amstel Light are $4 while wine is $5.
