Off The Menu: Trick Dog's New Menu Is All About Mural Culture... Fitting, No?
Trick Dog, a SF cocktail institution, has unleashed their list of newest drinks for 2017 and the central theme? Murals, fitting right?
The Trick Dog Mural Project, as it's called, is therefore not just a menu of 13 cocktails, it's a coordinated citywide mural project that brought together 14 artists to create city-sanctioned murals which are also collected in a book. "We were excited to be able to use our menu as a platform to facilitate public murals across San Francisco with an incredible group of artists and curators," explains Trick Dog owner Josh Harris.
The project goes back into charitable organizations that focus bringing art and murals into one playing field. The project was curated by artists and muralists Sam Flores and Ronnie Buders who have adorned the Trick Dog location.
The cocktails on the menu, thus, are named for the artists or their murals, including Jeremy Fish (Banks 5 rum, chai liqueur, Dolin dry vermouth, Luxardo Bianco Bitter, acid phosphate, and mango bitters), Brian Barneclo (Torres 15 year Spanish brandy, Hidalgo oloroso sherry, pineapple, allspice, clarified malted milk, and lime), and Rogelio Martinez (Aviation gin, papaya "som tam" liqueur, Ancho Verde, and mint).
Go ahead and support the mural community by sampling... well, all of it.
