The Intense Ginger Lime Martini
West Coast South American Protein Cocktail -- The Frisco Sour

City By The Bay -- The Frisco

San Francisco is a great city. It is one of those unique cities that I think every American should visit before they die. I have many friends who relocated there, and I always enjoy visiting them and the city.  If you’re a cocktail enthusiast, I recommend the following bars: Rickhouse, Bourbon and Branch, and Smugglers’ Cove.  In the interest of full disclosure, the first two bars are part owned by an old friend of my wife.  The last one is a fine tiki bar.

The Frisco is an old school cocktail, which means to me that it is heavy on the alcohol and light on fillers.  If you like rye whiskey like I do, I suggest the following recipe:

1.5 ounces rye whiskey
.5 ounces Benedictine DOM
Fresh lemon juice

Combine with ice in shaker, shake like you’re hurtling out of control down Lombard Street, and strain into chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with lemon peel.
