Pink Cadillac Cocktail

San Francisco

Two weeks ago we went out west and had a fantastic two days walking the streets of San Francisco.  We rode the trolly, walked up California Street (huffin’ and puffin’), had tea with Uncle G at Vital Tealeaf in China town, ate at Nob Hill cafe (that is some delicious italian food) and met some lovely people.  It was a wonderful city and we all wished we could have had more time to explore.  Sigh, I guess we will just have to go back….

San Francisco is known for its amazing cocktails and the Pink Cadillac is direct from San Francisco.  This cocktail gets its name because of the top shelf  liquors used to make it; hence ‘Cadillac’.  Strong and delicious, a true representation of the wonderful city of San Fran.

    Oh yes, the Pink Cadilac…D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!!
    Here in Sarasota, Fl. we get a twist on this tasty beverage at Mi Pueblo, our favorite Mexican Cantina and taco bar. (Excellent sellection of Tequilas ).
    I know their secret, but of course I am not at privilege to share…But if you are ever in Sarasota, Fl. visit Mi Pueblo and try one, or three!!! 😉
