Mr. Pike is truly the king of the dudes! Which is also the name of his latest 6-month barrel aged cocktail, made up of rye, mamajuana, and punt y mes. As the creator of the cocktail program at The Tasting Kitchen, he was already named best bartender in LA by GQ magazine in 2010. Since then, Justin’s inventions and his program have grown and just keep getting more and more impressive; and so does the list of his in-house inventions, some favorites including his lavender tonic, kola syrup, falernum, and fennel dram. Justin’s creativity, unique attention to detail, knowledge of spirits and bitters, and refined talent prove time and time again, that he is indeed a master of his craft. Whether he's making a Manhattan, a Bloody, or some crazy invention, this redheaded dude is without a doubt the best bartender in LA!
