Share a Social Bowl at Hermosa Beach hot spot Tower 12 will your friends (or make new ones).  You’ll love the taste of the Banana Hammock—made with Elijah Craig Bourbon, banana liqueur, fresh lemon juice, cinnamon syrup, bitters and banana chips—as much as we love the name.

You might feel like you’re doing something good (in addition to feeling REALLY good after drinking a few of them) when you imbibe the Tiki Novela, a sustainable cocktail where even the pineapple rind is boiled and used to create the Chica Morada syrup—nothing is wasted.

Cannabis cocktails at Gracias Madre
T-iesel at Gracias Madre

Yes, the T-iesel at Gracias Madre has a pot leaf sprinkled on top…but that’s because there’s actually cannabis IN the cocktail. The Sour T-iesel is made with CBD oil, the vegan egg white substitute aquafaba, tequila blanco, lime juice, agave nectar, mint and sage leaves, and a pinch of salt. That leaf on top, however, is not made with weed—that’s a matcha green tea leaf stencil garnish. But you don’t have to tell anyone. Your street cred is solidly in check.

This drink is big, red and lush—just like the lips of Marilyn Monroe, for whom the Norma Jean—a vodka spiked California strawberry lemonade—is named. Fun fact: Marilyn herself is buried in the cemetery right behind The Tuck Room.
