San Francisco Cocktail Week (Sept. 19-25), a weeklong celebration around the Bay of all things cocktailian, is just around the corner! Before we hit the parties, join the neighborhood cocktail crawls, study up at mixology classes, settle down for culinary events, and dress up for festive galas, let's get our buzz going with the official cocktail of SF Cocktail Week 2011!
Created by Duggan McDonnell, cofounder of SF Cocktail week and owner of Cantina (580 Sutter St., 415-398-0195), the official drink is the OXLEY Refuge & Tonic, a well-balanced, tropical gin treat inspired by the East and West.
