At Silo Freezer – part of the popular Silo Bar in downtown L.A. – visitors bundle up in house-provided snow jackets for vodka tastings surrounded by ice. The 10- to 15-minute sessions introduce guests and up to 10 friends to the bar’s rotating selection of luxury vodkas. The elixirs are kept at -2°C: the perfect temperature for vodka because it minimizes the burn while maximizing the flavour. Sip a quirky cocktail in a mason jar, like the Risky Bizness containing vodka, fresh strawberries, basil, lemon and simple syrup. It’s a memorable chaser for the bar’s live music shows and board game nights.
