Cocktail Menu: 25 Lusk in San Francisco

The newish San Francisco restaurant 25 Lusk has a cocktail menu, and it is below. Some of the drinks look good but to me it reads as a bit too accessible. Know what I mean?

I asked the PR agency who did the list, and they were kind enough to send over a bio:

Michael Musil, Bar and Cocktail Consultant

Over the years Musil has been called upon to develop cocktail lists for an impressive roster of establishments, including Restaurant Michael Mina at the Westin St.Francis, Ame at The St. Regis San Francisco, Town Hall, Cigar Bar, Yoshi’s and South Food + Wine Bar in San Francisco, as well as Michael Mina’s Stonehill Tavern at The St. Regis Monarch Beach.

The opening of Buffalo Grille marked the beginning of Musil’s 10-year relationship with Pat Kuleto Restaurants, including opening the renowned San Francisco Union Square restaurant Farallon as bar manager and later serving as the assistant general manager.
