11 Hottest Cocktails to Drink in Bars Now: February 2018
6: Monkey Wrench (White Cap, San Francisco)
Bringing a legit cocktail bar to S.F.’s sleepy Parkside neighborhood along the Pacific Ocean, White Cap invites with a sleek fireplace and reclaimed driftwood walls contrasted by teal banquettes. Surfer and local Matt Lopeza opened the bar at the end of 2017 with surfing pal and drink vet Carlos Yturria, who utilizes his sherry expertise in a sherry section of the menu. Yturria’s cocktails run both spirituous and light, like the softly creamy Monkey Wrench mixing coconut milk with lime, Havana Club Añejo Clasico rum and a touch of the sea with house-made seaweed syrup and a dried nori (seaweed) garnish.
