This Drink is inspired by the legandary punk and metal Club, The Omni, located just accross from The Avenue on Shattuck. This drink combines incredible flavors into one beautiful disaster, the same way the infamous club combined various forms of alternative music under one roof. My wife and I found the syrup in a little store in Truckee during our summer vacation to Tahoe, the flavor of the syrup practically begged for a rye whiskey, Jack Daniels released their rye whiskey and being as how Jack Daniels is synonymous with the Heavy Music community, it seemed natural to use it in a cocktail named after a Legandary Oakland Heavy Music Venue.

We set out to create a drink inspired by the diversity of Oakland by using different ingredients that come together to create a great cocktail to reflect our great city. We also wanted our cocktail to reflect what our bar program is all about so we created a drink that features both whiskey and wine. This drink features Wright and Brown which is the first distillery in Oakland since prohibition. The rye whiskey and vermouth bring a dryness that is balanced out by the citrus from the lemon and acid from the wine. Cheers!
