The Canon

Sazerac in new orleans, they like to do things their own way. judging by this famous variation on the old-fashioned, that way may be the right way. sazerac 6yr rye whiskey, the crescent city’s own peychaud’s bitters, a bit of sugar - and a glass rinsed with a green bitter liquid that shall remain nameless.   11.00
Bourbon Old-Fashioned the oldest cocktail, and still one of the best. nothing more than a slug of our own batch of evan williams bourbon on the rocks, with a couple of dashes of bitters, a little sugar, and a twist of lemon peel to take the edge off. sometimes the simplest things work best. we make ours without the "garbage" - the fruit salad with which the noble old warhorse is so often weighed down.   10.00
Hoots Mon no opinions needed. this drink is an argument settler. if you’re still in doubt, have another sip. scotch, punt e mes, kina l’avion d’or.   11.00
The Vieux Carre hey, it gets hot in here, real hot, like, new orleans hot. accordingly, we have a great reverence for the contributions of the crescent city to cocktail culture. this bracing 1938 nod to the french quarter combines james e pepper rye whiskey, marie duffau armagnac, benedictine, punt e mes, angostura and peychaud bitters, served up and ice cold. just be careful when leaving the bar as the fog has a way of reminding you where you really are, which may not be such a bad thing after all.   12.00
Army And Navy a simple drink for a complex world. gin, orgeat, lemon juice, and decanter bitters should give you some courage to fight whatever battles you wish.   10.00
Death In The Gulfsteam its tartness and its bitterness are its chief charms. it is reviving and refreshing; cools the blood and ispires renewed interest in food, companions, and life. bols genever, lime, sugar cane syrup, and angostura bitters.   11.00

New School

Workers' Comp working hard, or hardly working? this little concotion will help put the hop back in your step. arette reposado, cynar and hops syrup will get you feeling up to the job...or at least your taste buds.   10.00
Autumn Motive the cold is among us, and it’s time to get cozy while keeping the buzz at full throttle. aged bols genever, nocino, allspice and madeira should keep the pace going and ease you into winter.   13.00
The Vow Of Silence a rubenesque version of the derby cocktail, we use james e pepper rye whiskey, benedictine, cherry brandy, and a dash of bitters. responsible for breaking more than one vow.   11.00
Southern Exposure another refreshing elixir plucked straight from the garden, our spin on the classic southside uses st. george terroir gin, fresh mint, lime juice, a touch of sugar and a little shot of fresh celery juice. loaded with antioxidants to help deal with the haight’s population of free "radicals".   11.00
Nine Volt this is one positively powered elixir that won’t leave you half-charged. aviation gin, white szechuan pepper, white grape juice, and green tea will keep you running through the night.   10.00
Wooden Nickel wild turkey 101, pumpkin spiced milk, cranberry syrup, egg. this thanksgiving, many of the bay area’s best bars along with jupiter olympus and wild turkey are raising money for the sf / marin food banks. proceeds from the sale of each wooden nickel will go to support this great organization.   12.00
Vasco Da Gama we don’t take any shortcuts here at the alembic. rather, we take pride in going the long way around. fittingly, we offer this tribute to the portuguese count and explorer who first sailed from europe to india, rounding the cape of good hope, opening up a spice trade without which these flavors would never find themselves in the same vessel, buffalo trace bourbon, garam masala spiced apple syrup, and a wee splash of islay scotch, stirred briskly and tossed on the rocks.   11.00
Black Duck this long, strong vessel, on a cold december day in 1929, was peppered with bullets, thus ending the careers of three of the four men on board. rum running takes no prisoners, however, james e pepper rye, bannana cordial, lime, allspice, blackberry and creole shrub should float you safely through murky waters. just remember to zag instead of zig...   11.00
