7x7 Editors Test Out SF's Myriad Juice Cleanses

We at 7x7 consider ourselves slaves to fads of all sorts. The cragel? Check. Birkenstocks? (Um, yes, but don’t tell our perpetually high-heeled editor in chief.) The juice cleanse? We’re glad you asked! There are a bevy of companies in San Francisco offering up liquid nourishment in the name of clearer skin and cleaner bowels and and overall euphoric feeling (no matter how short-lived). Our editors were willing guinea pigs for seven local cleanses. Did we survive?

Cocktail Triumphant: Monarch's "Banning Rickey"

Fred Acebo of Monarch

After sampling ten craft rickey cocktails from San Francisco's top bartenders, our readers have spoken, and we have a winner! Monarch's Fred Acebo swept the competition with his "Banning Rickey" cocktail, a distinct remix of the traditional rickey recipe with notes of grapefruit and a spoonful of absinthe, creating unexpected layers of flavor that play well against the cocktail's Cointreau foundation.

Head over to Monarch and ask Acebo to whip up the Banning Rickey for you, or follow the directions below to mix it at home and show off your cocktail-making skills.

Vote: SF Mixologists Battle for the Best Cachaca 51 Cocktail Recipe

Cachaca 51

We'd like to speak out on behalf of the pigeonholed spirits of the world. Despite what you've been taught, cachaça can tackle a whole lot more than the classic caipirinha. The bold Brazilian spirit has been popping up all around San Francisco lately, from cozy neighborhood joints to a lofty rooftop deck. To take advantage of our local talent, Cachaça 51 invited five of SF's most creative mixologists to mix up a brand-new cocktail that demonstrates their locale's personality and shows off a little of their own flair.
