Sloaging through traffic trying to leave the Westside is enough to drive any one drink.
To ease the pain, Italian restaurant is introducing a new "carpool cocktail" in time for the scheduled 90-day ramp closures of the 405 Freeway at Wilshire Boulevard.
The cocktail will be the menu daily June 22 until the completion of the construction project, which has been dubbed "rampture" and "ramp jam."
Called the "Rampture Raspberry Mojito" ($6.22), the drink is mixed with rasberries from the Santa Monica farmers’ market, fresh mint, organic Papagayo Rum and sugarcane. To order the mojito, mention "rampture" and show proof of carpooling (such as a carpool parking permit or photo on a mobile phone).
Locando is on the Third Street Promenade at 231 Arizona Ave.
