For Los Angeles cocktail enthusiasts, it’s a particularly good week to be in downtown: Wednesday is the long-awaited debut of Joseph Brooke’s new cocktails at The Edison, and on Thursday Drago Centro launches its Winter Cocktail Menu.

As with previous seasonal cocktail menus, the Drago Centro winter menu is a collaboration between Beverage Director Michael Shearin and Head Bartender Jaymee Mandeville. Likewise taking a cue from previous launches, for one day only the new cocktails will be specially priced at $8 (regular price $12).
