Rye is a cocktail bar on Geary Street in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco (the slowly gentrifying part of the Tenderloin, otherwise known as the Tender Nob). They've quickly won a following and great word of mouth for their expertly mixed drinks infused with herbal flavors and fresh ingredients.
Here they share with us a few of their most popular cocktail recipes, including The Flash, a basil gimlet (more basil!) and a drink that calls for whole kumquats.
Each of these make one serving. First off, pictured above, is The Flash - cucumber, kiwi, and gin. Now that's summer in a glass!
Method: In a pint glass, muddle fresh cucumber , kiwi and lemon juice. Add ice, simple syrup, and gin. Shake vigorously and strain into stemmed cocktail glass. Garnish with sliced wheels of cucumber and kiwi.
