    New Tools For Your Home Bar

    We’re always looking for new ways to ratchet up our home bar techniques a notch. For presentation, we like the look of a gold cocktail pick skewering a brandied cherry in a rust-colored Manhattan. And for pure drama, we’re strong proponents of the saber, but we also enjoy the sound and fury of a three-prong ice pick shredding a berg of ice. More ideas after the jump.

    Red Bar SF Visits the Wine Cave

    Wingtip had the distinct pleasure of hosting the San Francisco chapter of Red Bar for their latest meet-up. The group of watch collectors visited our recently-renovated wine cave, and, in between sips of Balvenie and Glenfiddich, the eagle-eyed fanatics perused each other’s collections. Featured guest Michael Pearson, North America director of Bremont Chronometers, showed off the wares of the five-year-old watch brand, which fused Swiss Aviation watch tradition with UK style. The custom watchbands by Johnny Straps also had the crowd ogling. See the gallery after the jump.

    The Tuxedo Cocktail #2, Of Sorts

    We here at Wingtip strive to do things in a certain traditional way. We make Manhattans the way they have always been made. We make Old Fashioneds the old fashioned way. We drink beer from mugs and whisky from Glencairn glasses. So when I was tasked with putting the Tuxedo Cocktail #2 on the menu I dug deep into my brain to recall the recipe of this great Martini variation.

    Three Things I Learned In Scotland

    Edinburgh is a majestic city. While most of my time was spent at legendary distilleries, I kicked off my trip in Edinburgh, and boy was it amazing. We stayed in a hotel three blocks from the castle in old town. The streets are beyond cobblestone. They are old, and I mean older than our country, or at least they feel that way. Everywhere you look feels like you are in a postcard from the Middle Ages.

    Summer TV Style Report

    It’s officially summer, time for hiking, camping, swimming, and surfing—the channels, that is. Until recently, no exec in their right mind would have aired new shows during the summer, but since the idea of a “TV Season” has been disrupted by binge-watching, multi-year-hiatuses, and mini-seasons, summer has become fertile territory, and there’s a wealth of exciting—and stylishly entertaining—material to consume. Let’s take a look.

    Enjoying a Dunhill Cabinetta 1989

    Another trip to London, another stop to the Dunhill Tobacconist at the corner of St. James and Pall Mall. The shop, which opened just a little over a year ago, has a beautiful and somewhat modern humidor and wall of cigar lockers along with a world class selection of cigars.¬†On my last visit, I tried… Read more »

    One Noisy Night Of San Francisco Music

    How much music can fit into one night? That depends on how carefully you plan. Last Saturday I sampled some opera, jazz, and disco. It could have been rap, hardcore, and bluegrass, I suppose, but I was in the mood for opera, jazz, and disco. In that order. This is a recap of a night spent checking in on San Francisco’s musical grand buffet. At 5:30pm, I bought a standing room ticket for San Francisco Opera’s “Les Troyens” (The Trojans). Composer Hector Berlioz based the work on Virgil’s epic poem, “The Aeneid,” and the undertaking was so massive it had to be split into two separate operas, each with their own curtain call.

    Tempranillo Advocates: The Grand Tasting

    Tempranillo grapes were first planted in California in the 1700s by Spanish Missionaries. As a wine, Tempranillo is noted for berry fruit, minerality, and an earthy character. Depending on where it is grown and how it is produced, it can be light like Pinot Noir or big and dry like Cabernet. In late April, the Tempranillo Advocates Producers and Amigos Society (TAPAS) held their annual tasting under the Spanish tiled roof of the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio. There, guests sampled different expressions of Tempranillo–from California, sure, but also Oregon, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

    Lay it on me.

    The next James Bond film, “Spectre,” is still four months from release, but news hit this week that suggests the hunt for the next James Bond is on. British bookmaker William Hill, who offer betting opportunities on everything from horse-races/elections to the names of the royal babies, slashed the odds on the likelihood of Homeland actor Damian Lewis getting the next 007 assignment after Daniel Craig. Down from 25/1 to 2/1, (all odds current as of press time), Lewis is the odds-on favorite in a brawny pool of MI6 probables that includes Idris Elba (11/4), Tom Hardy (7/2), and Michael Fassbender (7/1).

    WhistlePig Old World Series Is the Latest Endeavor from the King Of Rye

    “WhistlePig let me do a lot of bizarre things,” recalls Master Distiller Dave Pickerell while introducing the WhistlePig Old World Series to a table of guests at Wingtip on a recent Friday night. “Without knowing if it was going to be any good or not, we just loaded up a bunch of barrels. [Then] I went to the bartender community, because I believe in their pulse. The first round of responses was, The two sherry finishes are nice, but they’re not on par with the other three. So we set those aside [and] started to focus on the Sauternes, the Madeira, and the Port finishes.”
