Manhattan Beach Cocktail

Manhattan Beach Cocktail

There is nothing better than sitting with a refreshing drink while the sun is shining and hearing ocean waves. For the past few years, I have had the luxury of living in the beautiful Manhattan Beach. When moving to LA, we chose this neighborhood to get away from the constant bustling LA scene. But, it still gives us access to the other great neighborhoods LA offers. Fortunately, we live right by the beach and have a lovely rooftop overlooking the water.

Easily transitioning to constant warm weather after moving from Chicago, we whipped up this this drink as a signature weekend favorite. We always make it for guests when they come to visit us. A play on Tata’s rose water lemonade, I like to think we brought something back from Chicago and made it our own in Manhattan Beach. So, pucker up and get sun-kissed while drinking this breezy Manhattan Beach Cocktail.
