As bartenders play with drink formats and serving vessels, and as meat juice becomes an increasingly acceptable thing to put into cocktails, a few drinks are starting to resemble soup around San Francisco. Here are some.
Split Pea Soup at Lolo. Peas and chicken? Also, garnish game is ON.
Bird and Seed - aquvit, lime syrup, chicken stock, green peas, fennel bitters, meyer lemon olive oil.
Ramen at Pabu. It's ramen inspired, minus the noodles, which are only in the name.
Tastefull Noodz - japanese whiskey, cynar, chicken ramen, mirin, citrus
Cereal at Wildhawk. This one has been on the menu since opening - a breakfast cereal-inspired Negroni that comes in a bowl with citrus peel marshmallows.
Breakfast Negroni - Cocoa Puffs-infused Negroni served with citrus marshmallow shapes.
Mystery Drink at PCH - Kevin Diedrich has been teasing the internet with pictures from the next cocktail menu - not due out until July. Not sure if this one is soup-like or if it's just the photo, but it makes me very thirsty... or hungry depending on whether or not it's soup.
