Drink Here Now: San Francisco Straight Up


Trick Dog

Perusing a map of San Francisco has never been as much fun (or as delicious) as it is at Trick Dog, a Mission District cocktail bar that tops our list of places to drink in a city full of excellent watering holes. The menu lists the bar’s libation’s–all 13 of which are named for local landmarks–on a lovely watercolor map. The Lombard Street, named for the infamous hairpin lane, is a smoky citrus mix of Pierde Almas mezcal, chili liqueur, and manzanilla, while the Painted Ladies–made with vodka, melon soda, honey, and mint–pays tribute to the city’s iconic pastel-hued Victorian houses. You can even leave with a souvenir: The coasters, which are printed with the different drinks’ ingredients, double as postcards.
