What We’re Drinking this Month

We find tequila is the perfect base for cocktails to help cool off and beat the heat. See below our pick for this month. 

The City of Angels, at Original Sin in Stoke Newington, London

Created by Emma Tanner, this cocktail was inspired by Ocho Founder Tomas Estes’ travels from LA across the border to Mexico and his memories of the Pacific Ocean. 

The blend of Ocho blanco, Ancho Reyes Verde Chile Liqueur, lime juice, samphire, aqua faba and sea salt makes this a truly delectable – and all too easily quaffable – cocktail. 

Video of the Month

This video was filmed 7 years ago this month, of Tomas Estes chatting with fellow Bar Legend (and one of our all-time favourite people) Dale DeGroff.

Until next month, stay well & sipping good tequila, 

Team Ocho
