4th & Webster

Vigilant Navy Strength Gin, muddled strawberries and cucumber, freshly squeezed lime juice, agave nectar

Inspiration for the 4th and Webster comes from the geographical area surrounding Seawolf Public House, known as the Jack London Square district. The base spirit in this cocktail, Vigilant Navy-Strength Gin is equally inspired by Jack London's love for gin martinis and the nearby Port of Oakland's Naval history. The fresh fruit in the cocktail is inspired by the produce markets that have a long history in the district surrounding Seawolf.

The Skyline

Oakland Spirits Co. Gin, lemon, huckleberry and Bordiga Rosso vermouth

Inspiration: Mountains! I thought that huckleberries foraged just off Skyline Blvd and Italian alpine herbs in the vermouth would be a great combination with a juniper mountain spirit--especially with one made on Oakland. That, and late night Oakland vistas with Sean and Brian. *Please note: Camino does not take tips so our Cocktail Week special is $12 with zero expectation of a tip.
