I’ve been a fan of Quinary for years, and even interviewed owner Antonio Lai back in 2012 for this blog.
This post is just to share my latest obsession at the mixology bar on Hollywood Road with you: the Lavender Meringue Pie.Developed by one of Quinary’s resident mixologists, Samuel Kwok, this cocktail hits all the right notes. I really like gin and citrus combinations in general, and the LMP rounds off a sophisticated lavender-infused gin with limoncello (YUM!!!!).
The icing on the top comes in the form of an inch-thick layer of insanely irresistible marshmallow fluff, which the bar burns before serving, just like a crème brûlée.
And if you’re wondering about the dried lemon slice – yes, you should eat it. I like to dip it in the foam and break off small crunchy pieces to nibble on for a concentrated citrus blast.It’ll be a while before I shake off this obsession. I just can’t get enough, and recommend this to all sweet/sour cocktail lovers. SERIOUSLY – go try it!
