A friend of mine suggested I add this cocktail and while the stuffy pretentious drinker in me turns up it’s nose to modern cocktails like this, the laid back, chill me loves drinks like this. I have no idea who first made this, they are most likely still young and still alive, but I am going to take a wild guess and say it was first mixed somewhere in LA. the joke is that this funky colored drink is suppose to look like the tap water in Los Angeles. I get that the joke is the water is gross and funky but if the tap water there actually tasted like this I would move to LA and never look back. No its not vintage but its super good.
