  1. Trick Dog in the Mission is one of our favorite spots and their Gypsy Tan is a blend of Rittenhouse 100 rye, Mandarine Napoléon orange liqueur, Fernet Blanca, ginger, lemon, Erdinger Weissbier, and nutmeg. Go for the cocktails and stay for the hipster ambiance.

Known for their extensive list of spirits (they offer more than 100 types of whisky from all over the world), The Alembic has been impressing locals and visitors with their impressive cocktails.

  1. Fifth Floor Restaurant in the Financial District uses a sweet spin on beer cocktails with their Jersey Cocktail. Combining Pear Cider, Applejack and simple syrup, your taste buds will be delighted with this refreshing beverage. The name even has a historical reference as Applejack was once used as currency to pay road construction crews during the colonial period in New Jersey.
