Happy Depression: Copa D'Oro $5 Drink Specials

I always seem to forget about this delightful little (assistant friendly) happy hour at Copa D'Oro in Santa Monica.  5:30PM - 8PM Daily & all day on Monday, Copa offers an array of prohibition stylized cocktails for $5 a pop.  And if that's not enough to whet your palate, they have a selection of small bar bites as well.

But be warned, this tasty beverages pack a strong punch...

Affinity - Scotch, extra dry & sweet Vermouth, Orange Bitters
By far the strongest of the drinks, this tasted like MAN with a touch of fruity orange.  It takes a champion to finish a round of these.
Capirinha - Cacha, fresh lime juice, simple syrup
Per our resident Brazilian, these held fairly true to their original origins.
Clover Club - Gin, fresh lemon juice, raspberry syrup, egg white
My favorite, it was cemented on the girly side of the fence, but was very fresh and seasonal.
Whiskey Sour - Bourbon, fresh lemon juice, egg white
And finally, the Whiskey Sour. Having not grown up in the 30's I have no idea if this is just like the original, but it packed a nice punch, and the frothy egg white added a rich complexity to the drink.
