If you find yourself in Los Angeles, and feel like checking out the incredible coastline, be sure to stop for lunch, afternoon drinks, or a romantic dinner at Terranea , an incredibly gorgeous resort in Palos Verdes, on the southern tip of the Santa Monica Bay. We were there for lunch, and not only did the sun shine and sky beam a brilliant blue, but dolphins were out gallivanting in the ocean. I mean, can you get any more SoCal than that?
Nelson’s is Terranea’s casual lunch spot, where you can sit outside with an ocean view. The full bar offers a handful of signature cocktails, but we chose a Patrón Silver Mojito , and Patrón Tequila’s version of a Moscow Mule , called Jalisco’s Mule , made with Patrón Silver , ginger liqueur (the bartender substituted with ginger beer , which tasted great), simple syrup , and lime juice. Both were fabulous and perfect to enjoy in the warm sun with mahi mahi tacos and cod fish & chips.
