La Javanesa, which first opened its doors in September 2016, is a cocktail bar that the neighbourhood of Les Corts was waiting for. They serve true marvels of mixology, their own recipes and others that they've found in the temple of temples to cocktails, the Suffolk Arms in New York. For example, a Dispara y Apunta is made of mezcal, natural pineapple emulsified with five types of pepper and mead for 24 hours, and Bittermens: a smoky and spicy delight. Or a Costra, with origins dating back to 1850, made of brandy, triple sec, maraschino cherry with amaretto, lime juice and a splash of angostura. The owners and operators of La Javanesa say that this is a place where they don't use measures, just their passion. And it shows.
