Behind the Scenes: The Making of Guns and Moses

ingredients including Cherry Manischewitz

Yesterday, I attended the second annual LA’s Best Bartender Competition sponsored by Table 20 and ran into Kate Grutman, the bar manager of Sotto. I had nominated her and it was cool to hear about which Karlsson’s Gold Vodka cocktail she submitted. As it turns out, it was the Guns and Moses, one of the more favored cocktails of the night.

Guns and Moses by Kate Grutman

Guns and Moses

  • 1-1/2 oz Karlsson’s Gold Vodka
  • 3/4 oz lime juice
  • 3/4 Maraska Maraschino
  • 1 oz Cherry Manischewitz
  • Scant 1/2 tsp. rose water

Garnish with rose petal.

Kate paid tribute to her Jewish ancestry by using Manischewitz and naming the cocktail Guns and Moses. I was a little doubtful when I first saw this drink until I had a sip. (Later we were doing shots of Manischewitz but no one needs to know that right? Oh wait…)

I’ll be recapping the competition on The Minty soon!
