Drink of the Week: Cocktail of the Month

Ever wanted to make fancy cocktails at home, because you’re thrifty and/or hate people? Over the past few months, Bi-Rite has been collecting cocktail recipes from restaurants like Aziza and the Slanted Door and printing them up on a handy little card, so you can take it home, put on suspenders, and start shaking up craft cocktails in the privacy of your one-bedroom apartment.

This month’s pick is a drink I’ve had before, off the brunch menu at Nopa, which is incidentally the best restaurant in San Francisco. Like a breakfast negroni, the Sunshine Fix is a bright and potent cocktail that is simple enough that even you could probably make it. In fact, you could probably make a whole batch of these, and then you wouldn’t have to do anything for the rest of the day except for figure out what to eat. So that’s a pretty good idea.

    This is advanced drink mixing for the assholes who read this blog, judging by the comments they make. Most of them would be challenged by the instructions for a gin and tonic — never mind a drink that called for a brand name bottle.

    Step one: Grow a funny mustache and buy suspenders.

    Step two: Ignore your guests for 10-15 minutes, then tell them, “I’ll be right with you” then ignore them for another five minutes.

    Step three: Ask your guests what they want. Grab some liquor, some other junk, pour it into a glass then pour it into a shaker. Shake for approximately four minutes. Pour back into glass, and mix with a metal instrument: 23 rotations clockwise, 17 counterclockwise. Serve.

    I love to experiment on different cocktails though I don’t get good results at all times. But still, it’s worth the try.
