Road to Coachella: Where to Imbibe Fest-Inspired Cocktails
You're on the road to Coachella for a weekend of sun-soaked musically-enhanced Bacchanalia. You're thirsty. You've got a designated driver who is abstaining from the sauce. If you pull off the road in a magical land called Rancho Cucamonga, Ra Pour is hoping to reel you in with cocktails inspired by the annual music fest.
Four Coachella-inspired cocktails are on Ra Pour's drinks menu for the entire month of April (so, yes, even if you aren't Coachella-bound, but either looking to liven up your visit to a local giant mall or need to drown your ticket-less sorrows, you can join in the fun).
And--hey! You might need to wash down your $28 bag lunch from The Bazaar. (We don't know about you, but the high-end equivalent of a Lunchables always gives us a thirst for hard liquor.)
The restaurant sent us over these drink names and descriptions:
Gin N Juice (in honor of Sunday headliners Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s hit record)
A gin and elderflower liqueur with grape garnishes
Gary Clark Jr.’s Bright Lights
Tequila, rum, Grand Marnier and a lime/pineapple juice flourish
R U Mine (created with the Arctic Monkeys in mind)
Bourbon, raspberry vodka and vermouth
Rye whiskey, raspberries and grapefruit juice
We know you're the clever type, and considering the rich minefield of musical talent and Coachella-related humor from which one can cull, in the spirit of great Cochella spoofs and riffs everywhere, feel free to share with us in the comments what your Coachella-themed cocktail concoction would involve.
