The Roost at LA Farm is a brand new concept restaurant in serving
up rustic and refined cuisine in Santa Monica. The restaurant has an elevated,
modern farmhouse look with denim striped chairs, a copper bar, whitewashed
fences, and plenty of wood details. It’s the perfect combination of warm and
comfortable, with a little bit of elegance.
We sat down with General Manger Anthony Trincanello to learn how to make one of their signature drinks, the Bourbon Jam, a gorgeous sip with fresh Italian apricot jam shaken into citrusy limoncello and bourbon. As a Level III Sommelier, he taught us a thing or two about how to make a great cocktail (extensive shaking over ice is key), as well as his inspiration for making craft cocktails with a farm-feel in a modern locale.
It's simple and stunning, and really highlights each flavor profile without overpowering a single ingredient.
