Weekend Drinks: The Escapology


via SFist

The brilliant (and clearly alcoholic) editors at SFist have found yet another drink winner in San Francisco: The Escapology. Yes, it has elderflower liqueur, and yes, they refer to it as "the bacon of the cocktail world," but this drink sound delicious and refreshing. Plus, you get some of your daily requirement of vegetables (that is why they put the cucumber in there, right?). If you're in Union Square, stop by Burger Bar and try this drink out. Or, just go to BevMo, get the ingredients and make yourself a punchbowlful at home. (Grande be damned. Punchbowl is my preferred drink size)

The Escapology

1.5 oz. Ocho Plata tequila (or other silver, unaged tequila)

0.5 oz. St. Germain

1 oz. fresh lime juice

0.75 oz simple syrup

Four thin slices of cucumber

Fever Tree bitter lemon soda

In a shaker, muddle the cucumber with a splash of syrup. Add the rest of the ingredients besides the bitter lemon and shake vigorously. Strain over ice and top with the soda.
