Where to Drink Cocktails in Long Beach: The Ordinarie

Long Beach was never a cocktail destination for me and I didn't know of good places for cocktails down in Long Beach. But recently I see that starting to change with my visit to The Ordinarie, a new-ish tavern in downtown LB.

I didn't try the food there (though they have a late night menu until 12:30 am) but we tried some of the cocktails, starting with The Pendennis (Botanist gin, Bitter Truth apricot liqueur, Peychaud's bitters, lime - $12)
The Ordinarie
This was a pretty nice, dry gin cocktail.

The dimly lit bar was pretty quiet on a Thursday night. They had live acoustic music, and overall it was a pretty chill place to hang out.
The Ordinarie
Lavender milk punch (clarified milk punch with Bols Genever, honey, lavender - $12)
The Ordinarie
This was our favorite drink of the night, but I've been known to love milk punches.

Here are other drinks we tried:
Ordinarie Sangaree (Pierre Ferand 1840 cognac, Batavia arrack, madeira, orgeat, cherry, pineapple, lemon - $12)
The Ordinarie
The Sangaree was a bit on the sweeter side, though still relatively well balanced.

A Walk in the Woods (Tito's vodka, Suze, pea, cactus, mint, lime - $12)
The Ordinarie
This was a refreshing drink for the summer.

The Ordinarie also has a good draft beer selection and happy hour gives you $2 off all drinks.
