Cocktail Menu: Ziryab in San Francisco

G&Tea Cocktail Menu at Firefly in DC

This appears to be the summer of the Gin & Tonic, particularly with Spanish-style super-garnished tumblers of tonic making the rounds at several bars.


In Washington, DC, Jon Harris the restuarant Firefly has combined Spanish-style G&Ts with Japanese-style drinking of spirits with tea to come up with a G&Tea program. Pretty nifty.
