Brian MacGregor’s “King of the Orkneys” among San Francisco’s “Most Expensive Cocktails”

As part of Eater SF’s continuing Cocktail Week coverage, they compiled a list of SF’s priciest mixed drinks. And, for better or worse, Brian MacGregor’s Bobby Burns-inspired “King of the Orkneys” ranked pretty high on the list.

The pocket-burning drink calls for: Highland Park 40, Carpano Antica, and Angostura and Regan’s orange bitters. It is served over an ice ball in a handmade Match Pewter glass, with a crown of lemon peel. $300.

Check out the full list of devil-may-care drinks here.
