Retreat to Estancia La Jolla, a hidden gem on the bluffs of La Jolla, with sprawling 10-acres of lush garden, unique culinary offerings and wellness experiences that will re-energize your group. This fall, shake things up for your group and easily create unforgettable moments with unparalleled service at Estancia La Jolla.
Estancia is known for creating intimate moments that spark connection and creativity for our groups. Our favorite way of doing this is curating a special dinner that features one long table on one of our many secluded and beautiful gardens where the group can dine under the stars in a truly memorable setting. You can always add a fun team bonding moment to the dinner such as adding a pop-up flower crown station where guests can create their own floral headbands and or create sip and succulent station while sipping on one of our in-house craft cocktails while creating their very own succulent before the dining experience begins.
Groups looking to get creative with not just their programming, but their cocktails can tap our very own in-house mixologist to craft something exclusive to their group. Some of our most requested cocktails include Estancia’s signature spiked cider and or Watermelon Sugar Fire cocktail that also happens to make for a great instagrammable-moment!
Estancia’s Spiked Cider
- 1.75 oz. Bourbon
- 1 oz Apple Cider
- ½ oz Lemon Juice
- 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
Combine bourbon, apple cider, and lemon juice and shake. Add two dashes of Angostura Bitters and top the glass off with Ginger Beer to taste.
Watermelon Sugar Fire
- 2 oz Y&Y Habanero Vodka
- 1 oz watermelon juice
- 1 oz lime
- 1 oz. simple syrup
- Garnish: Tajin Rim and Paleta
For the paleta, blend Tajin, chamoy and watermelon juice and freeze on popsicle mold for 12 – 24 hrs. For the infusion, slice one habanero pepper and drop it in the bottle of You & Yours Summer Citrus Vodka. Let the vodka soak up the flavor from the pepper.
For the cocktail: add vodka, watermelon juice, lime juice and simple syrup to a shaker with ice and shake until frosty. Prep your rocks glass with a takin rim and pour cocktail, in with NO ice. Use a paleta as your ice, which will just increase flavor as it melts and will keep your cocktail chill the entire time.
- 2 oz. 21 Seeds Valencia Orange Agave Spirit
- 1 oz. Aperol
- .50 Lemon Juice
- 1 oz. Kombucha to top off.
- Garnish: Lemon Wheel
Shake 2 seeds, Aperol, and lemon. Pour into a tall glass with ice and top off with watermelon kombucha (amazing with any citrus kombucha as well). Garnish with a lemon wheel.
