Cocktails - The Bohemian Revolt at Coin-Op (San Diego)

One of my favorite cocktails in San Diego right now! Light, refreshing, tart and slightly sweet, with a touch of savory spices (cardamom, clove, nutmeg), what I call a "delightful" cocktail, on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Leigh Lacap is responsible for this beauty. He introduced us to sherry cocktails at Ironside, and put this one on the new menu at Coin Op. (tip: free play games the last Sunday of every month!) Here's the recipe for you cocktail lovers!

The Bohemian Revolt

  • 1.5 oz Manzanilla sherry
  • .5 oz Geijer Glogg
  • .5 oz St George pear brandy
  • .75 oz fresh lemon juice
  • shy .5 oz honey syrup (3:1) 
  • freshly grated nutmeg
  • fresh mint garnish

Shake and serve on pebbled ice, artfully garnished. 

Coin Op's approach to cocktails is not what you expect when you hear the word "barcade" -  this is part of the allure we appreciate about this great neighborhood spot. Sip on a cocktail like The Pastry War (mezcal, china china amer, lemon & sugar) or The Nether Region (mint-tea infused genever, fernet, ginger, lime & soda), and play Off Road or Pinball.  The new menu has a three-tiered cocktail section: for those who are looking at an introduction to craft cocktails, start at level 1, and others who delight in more complex flavors, level up. 

They even have a house interpretation of the infamous Fireball shot (if that's your thing).
