Off Menu: A 100 Years of Cocktails in Under 2 Minutes
Off Menu is our tribute to the service industry. It’s where we cover restaurant openings and bar closings, industry rumors and inside dirt. It’s where we cheer on our favorite chefs, servers, and nightlife superheroes. And the best part is, it comes from those of us that live that life, that work in the trenches.

We thought we’d launch the Off Menu series with this super cool video of Bar manager Adam Delaney at Tradition in San Francisco. In it he mixes a hundred years worth of American cocktails for our viewing and boozing pleasure. He’s the type of guy you want to see behind a bar complete with wood paneling and multiple shelves of alcohol and tinctures.
Tradition is from the same crew that brought us Bourbon & Branch and Local Edition, so you know the ice cubes are going to be big and the collection of whiskey is going to be great. You get the fun of pretending you’re in a 1920’s Speakeasy, but prohibition officers won’t bust you and the gin is not made in Adam’s bathtub.
Thanks to Avelino Pombo and Mode Media for highlighting local talent, and Tradition for the photo.
