Lei lounge in San Diego

More LA posts to come, but had to add a few posts from my San Diego adventures this week. The outdoor tiki-torch lit Lei lounge had heated lamps, but barely needed them last night as we dined on lobster mac and cheese and Cuban chicken with sticky rice. Besides Lei being a year-round outdoor bar, I actually loved it more for the exotic Tom Collins-inspired cocktails. I love a good Tom Collins, and rarely see it being tinkered with on the mixology front. Lei’s offered a slew of vodka versions in traditional tall glasses like the Lemongrass Collins; vodka, lemongrass, lemon juice, simple syrup and 7-Up, an Aloe Vera Collins with vodka, aloe vera juice, lemon, simple syrup and 7-Up, and a Strawberry version with fresh strawberry purée, vodka, simple syrup, and lemon juice with echinecea of all things. Random but sort of genius for cold season. 4622 Park Blvd, San Diego, 619.813.2272
