Cocktails at the new Causwells in San Francisco

The Marina district bistro Causwells has reopened with Elmer Mejicanos (Tony's, Red Window) onboard as the Managing Partner and Beverage Director.



He put together a really ambitious cocktail list for the small restaurant with tons of outdoor seating.

With a group of friends, I was able to try a lot of the cocktails. Favorites outside of the below were: the Grasshopper, Cleverest Clover Club, Monkey Business, White Caus-mopolitan, Gin 50-50, and La Pina.

But my most favorites of all were: 


Open Sesame 
milagro tequila, bianco vermouth, cold pressed poblano, lime, agave, toasted sesame

Fig News
mommenpop, kumquat, green walnut, fig leaf cordial, sparkling wine



I thought the Deconstructed Pimm's Cup (pimms, hendricks gin, chareau, cold pressed cucumber & strawberry, lemon, ginger beer) was also lovely, and is a great looking drink.

And the Ube-tter bee-lieve it (2 year cinnamon & pineapple vinegar, clarified ube golden milk, lemon, bubbles, ube foam) is a stunner!
