Notes on three recent cocktails from Wingtip Bar Manager Brian MacGregor:
The Boothby: a San Francisco classic created by local bar legend Cocktail Bill Boothby, this is the West Coast answer to the manhattan, we start with equal parts bourbon and sweet vermouth, add a dash of bitters and top it off with some sparkling wine.
Ferdinand’s Draw: Pilsner, Suze, nothing else. A complex layering of flavors rarely found in such simplicity.
Wingtip Grog: If ever stuck out at sea and needing a classy remedy to freshen you palate look no further than this blend of Denezin Rum, Lemon peel syrup, lime juice and angostura bitters. Simple, refreshing and ever so good.
