In December, Los Angeles magazine hosted the Big Holiday Party, a spirits tasting event in the Lobby of The Ratkovich Company’s 5900 Wilshire. The evening featured eight bars serving festive cocktails made with Effen Vodka/ DeKuyper, Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Puerto de Indias, and Dulce Vida. Other beverages included brews from Stella Artois and Stella Cidre, organic hard kombucha from Flying Embers, and a holiday spritz from Jardesca California Aperitiva. Guests also indulged in seasonal savory and sweet bites by The Kitchen for Exploring Foods, beats by DJ Hem, photos with Santa, and a special performance by the Tinseltone Carolers. The event’s charity partner was the LA Galaxy Foundation.
