Papa Ghirardelli Recipe

Happy Hour: Papa Ghirardelli

San Francisco Cocktail Week is in full effect, and if you don't live in the city by the Bay, don't worry: I've got the official cocktail recipe for you! Named for the Italian founder of the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company, Domingo Ghirardelli, this vibrant concoction is a potent mixture of several liquors including pisco, vermouth, Campari, and Benedictine. When selecting a pisco, I recommend Encanto, a new brand that was created by one of San Francisco's top bartenders, Duggan McDonnell. It's an incredibly smooth pisco that's easy to sip on its own or in this wonderful drink. The seltzer water balances out the complex cocktail while providing a lovely effervescence. It's a refreshing libation that would pair perfectly with salty appetizers. Interested in the recipe? Read more.
