San Francisco Fizz

A mash-up of a Mai Tai and Pisco Punch, two drinks invented in the Bay Area, Erik Adkins' San Francisco Fizz at Wo Hing General Store is a refreshing tribute to the city. Beverage director for the Slanted Door restaurant group, Adkins added this drink to the menu at the group's newest restaurant. Shake this drink vigorously so that the egg white is as light and foamy as marshmallow. For more 2012 Best Cocktails, click here.
