Creative Cocktails at Lola Gaspar
Local hotspot serves up an inspired list of delicious drinks in a romantic atmosphere.
Located in the historic Santora Building in downtown Santa Ana’s über-hip Artist Village, Lola Gaspar is a sultry kitchen and bar with an impressive menu inspired by Latin and European classics. The cocktail list is one of Orange County’s most original and flavorful, using only high-quality liquor with fresh juice and herbs. Some favorite handcrafted cocktails include the Huckleberry with bourbon, honey, grapefruit, thyme and bitters prepared over ice, and La Pistola, a concoction of tequila blanco, house sour, spiced blood orange liqueur with a gunpowder rim. Lola Gaspar also carries an extensive wine list that is updated each season. Don’t miss the house-made sangria, which marinates in fruit for 24-48 hours it’s served. Visit Lola Gaspar for Siesta Hour, weekdays 3:00-6:00 pm, for a selection of $5 small plates and bar specials. 211 W. 2nd St., Sant Ana, 714.972.1172. lolagaspar.com
