SHANGHAI KELLY’S BAD BAD PISCO PUNCH – CHINA LIVE, SAN FRANCISCO

San Francisco’s new China Live is arguably the most ambitious Chinese food concept in the country. A massive Chinatown food hall that starts on the first floor with the Market Restaurant, an upscale retail market, Bar Central and Oolong Café. Opening upstairs is a fine-dining restaurant and hidden bars, all menus centered around modern Chinese food with a touch of Taiwan. Director of beverage and cocktail renaissance pioneer Duggan McDonnell oversees all drink menus, from Malaysian-style cold-brew coffee to beers. Cocktails downstairs (at the bar and the restaurant) showcase Chinese teas and beyond. Shanghai Kelly’s Bad Bad Pisco Punch marries Duggan’s Encanto pisco and Plantation Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple rum with gunpowder green tea, lime, pineapple, orange bitters and a splash of ginger beer, in a San Francisco classic: the Pisco Punch. – Liquor.com (05.30.17)
