As you may have already heard, Hangar 1 is having a moment among San Francisco's top culinary talent. This month, 7x7 is revealing never-before-seen (or tasted) recipes from the kitchens of Rich Table, Maven SF, and The Cavalier, all created from locally-sourced ingredients and Hangar 1 Vodka. Each head chef is debuting their farmers market infused cocktail at a local tech startup happy hour this month, selected from our 25 Bay Area Startups Making a World of Difference list.
The chefs and their esteemed mixologists have drafted up some pretty incredible recipes and now eagerly await San Francisco's critiques! Have a look and let us know which drink you'd most like to try via the voting widget located along the right side of this page.
One lucky winner and six of their closest drinking buddies will receive VIP invites to the June 2014 "7x7 Hangar Hour" with the winning chef and supporting tech startup, where he or she can sample the winning cocktail as many times as possible (responsibly). Let's get started!
