Drinking Out on a School Night


 Usually Shane and I never go out to events especially in Downtown LA on a Wednesday. But I finally convinced him that this is a good idea. Ludlows Cocktails Jelly Shots had a cocktail crawl in DTLA. There is a backstory. I funded their Kickstarter campaign.  Why? Have you ever seen me turn down a Jell-O shot? Ludlows jelly shots are all natural, require no refridgeration, and are 30 proof.  The flavors include Planters Punch, Old Fashioned, Margarita, Moscow Mule, and Meyer Lemon Drop. I know right? Why the fuck not! I fully support anything that makes it easier to sneak beverages into the Kings game. Uhhhh....Not saying that I do that though. 

We went to three bars and tried a Jelly Shot and the actual cocktail counterpart. One bar hooked it up with an extra drink too.  We went to Peking Tavern, Mas Malo, and  Honeycut.  The featured jelly shots were the Planters Punch, Fresh Lime Margarita, and the Moscow Mule. I was really hoping for the Old Fashioned because it is the drink of my 30s but I can wait for the next crawl or when they hit stores.  


I was pretty drunk by the end of the night, but I wasn't drunk enough to enjoy the Coolhaus ice cream bar! Yes, the co-founder of Coolhaus, is the founder of Ludlows Jelly Shots. Together they are doing something amazing and I am completely inspired and that's not  Hammered Montana talking!
