Queen Anne’s Lace Cocktail Recipe

Created by WORLD CLASS finalist Andrew S. Metlzer, the Queen Anne’s Lace Cocktail is a great representation of his cocktail style, and heavily influenced by San Francisco.

Created with San Francisco’s local produce and creative spirit in mind, Queen Anne’s Lace is an eccentric mix of ingredients inspired by Northern Californian cuisine. The clean, crisp taste and understated sweetness make this delicious drink a great brunch-time swap for a standard Bloody Mary.
