Can't find them anywhere... please advise! I had the audacity to enquire at Nic's Martini Lounge recently, but they didn't seem to care that I tried to order something not off their exquisite martini menu....

    Bar Lubitsch a few blocks east of Fairfax on Santa Monica Blvd.

    Same folks as Roger Room, Jones, El Carmen etc. but it's a Russian themed bar with plenty of vodkas for drinking straight or spiffed up into various concoctions.

    Personally, I'm a fan of a drink they make with fresh apple juice, vodka, and a flammable floater. I ask them to skip the flame and toss in a lemon wedge and it's perfection.

    They do however have the mule on menu. I'll try it out next time.

            The mandrake makes a good one and its very reasonable priced. Definitely a young crowd though.

              RIP the Cock 'N Bull Tavern where the Moscow Mule (vodka, lime and Ginger beer) was invented.

              The problem is going to be finding a bar that stocks ginger beer. I found a recipe that uses ginger liqueur, but there's no fizz:

              Ther's a chance the bartender at Musso and Franks' could make one for you ... and if not, maybe the Pig 'n Whistle across the street.
