Speaking of pisco

Pisco in 'Cisco

In the August issue of San Francisco Magazine, I have a story on the return of the Pisco Punch, a cocktail that was invented during the Gold Rush era at the Bank Exchange bar. The story highlights Pisco, the new lounge opening next to Destino any day now.

The story also mentions that you can get a Pisco Punch at Level III, Cantina, and the Presidio Social Club, but that's ain't everywhere. You can also find it at Orson, Farallon, and Beretta. It was briefly on the menu at Bourbon & Branch.

Beyond the punch, the Pisco Sour and other pisco drinks are showing up at places like McCormick & Kuleto’s, Zazil, the Alembic, Coco500, Range, Clock Bar, and NOPA, plus all the Peruvian restaurants that have been serving it all along. And there is another new pisco-focussed restaurant opening on the Embarcadero soon- La Mar Cevicheria Peruana.

For all of the other flavors and trends making their way into Bay Area cocktails, nothing is moving onto menus as fast as pisco.
