While drinking the Prudence Prim, I began flipping through Bottom's Up and noticed the Sir Francis Drake Special. What caught my eye was that it was a room temperature cocktail, a style that generally disappeared with the Scaffa but the authors from Beta Cocktails are trying to revive. The drink was created at the Hotel Sir Francis Drake in San Francisco sometime between the hotel being built in 1928 and the book being first published in 1951. The bar is significant in San Francisco drink history for Tony Abou-Ganim, Marco Dionysos, and Jacques Bezuidenhout and others have worked there through the years. Moreover, Camper English wrote a pair of posts a week or so ago about the bar reopening after a major renovation and menu revision.
