With the Del Mar Race Track heading into its 80th season on Wednesday, July 19th, L’Auberge Del Mar is prepping for its Opening Day After Party. This annual event is anticipated by local residents and racing enthusiasts alike because of the iconic location, amazing ocean views, music, cocktails and tasty bites from Chef Nathan Lingle. One of the main attractions is a bartender’s creation – the Off to the Races cocktail. L’Auberge graciously shared the recipe for this racing day staple so you can have an after party of your own.
