Fort Point (San Francisco)

John Gertsen created one of the same name at Drink, which is in Boston’s Fort Point, but I’m thinking of a different bay. If you’ve seen Kim Novak jump into the water in Vertigo, that’s the spot.


Fort Point (San Francisco)
  • 3/4 oz Laird’s Straight Apple Brandy
  • 3/4 oz London dry gin
  • 3/4 oz Aperol
  • 1/2 oz lemon
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Lemon twist.

A morning cocktail I ad libbed while having bagels with a friend—on a recent visit to New York, oddly enough. Related to my Baker Beach, hence the name.
