The California Artisanal Distillers Guild, the trade association for the state's burgeoning craft distillers, called this year for Los Angeles cocktail lovers to help create a drink that embodies the City of Angels.  

The winner of the search for L.A.'s signature cocktail is the Griffith.

The vodka cocktail was created by Culver City resident, Josh Lurie, and is named for the large park in the heart of Los Angeles. The cocktail is a mix of organic ingredients distilled and grown in L.A. County. 

Litty Mathew, founder and spirits maker at Greensbar Distillery, joins Take Two to talk about (and taste) the winning cocktail.
