The Bay Area is booming with talented mixologists and one of our favorite San Francisco watering holes is easily Charles Phan’s Chinese Heaven’s Dog. That’s thanks in no small part to the charms of Ethan Terry, one of the friendliest and most knowledgeable barkeeps we know. Inside the modern, red-decked restaurant you can find Terry behind the sleek, narrow bar, pouring his version of pre-Prohibition drinks. His rendition of a sour combines Pear Eau de Vie, Maple, Cardamom, and Armagnac for the perfect balance of fall fruit. And although Heaven’s Dog has been closed for renovations for the last few months, Terry has kept busy guest pouring at spots all over the city, including AQ’s bar, a menu he originally helped design.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Autumn Motive: Aged Bols Genever, Allspice Dram, Nocino, and Madeira
  • Stone Cell Sour: Armagnac, Pear Eaux de Vie, Maple, Lemon, Cardamom Bitters, and Egg Whites
  • Not Buttered Rum: Añejo Tequila, Mezcal, Gravenstein Apple Juice, Sage Butter, Clove, Brown Sugar, and Black Pepper
