|Summer in a glass at The Hungry Cat|
Here's a smattering of refreshing and delicious cocktails you can sip for as long as the fresh locally grown fruit holds out. Happy hour, anyone?
The Hungry Cat: The Passion Pit was a special last weekend when we stopped in after the Hollywood Farmers Market, a glass filled with chunks of muddled peaches, rye whiskey, lemon and turbinado simple syrup.
Drago Centro: The seasonal cocktail menu at Celestino Drago's Downtown restaurant features The White Picket Fence, a sipper made of apple brandy, peach puree, white tea, egg white and Forbidden bitters.
Casa Vega: An ice-blended peach margarita is just about right for the Valley heat at this Mexcian stalwart.
Sotto: The La Pesca Gustosa features Tenerelli Farms peaches and Bernard Farms lemons, Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac, Combier, Applejack brandy, Aperol and sage. Lip-smacking good.
Cafe del Rey: The White Hot Peach Sangria, made with dry white wine, brandy, peach schnapps, peach-infused simple syrup, slices of white peaches, served by the glass or pitcher.

Pitfire Artisan Pizza: How about a little peach and berry white sangria to go with your wood-fired pies?
Freddy Smalls: We love the cocktails and bar snacks here. The Pickled Peach Old Fashioned pairs Buffalo Trace bourbon with pickled peaches, bitters and fresh basil.
Church & State: Yep, Downtown LA's French bistro has a great cocktail program, too. The Allocation is made with Buffalo Trace bourbon, fresh peaches, Combier liqueur, lemon and mint, served on the rocks, in a highball.
Momed: Ok, maybe one Bellini. The frozen peach one at this South Beverly Drive spot is a nice icy treat with those modern Mediterranean dishes.
