When it comes to living in San Francisco, you are just about as mainstream and patriotic as one can be about a city. You’ll take the cable car just to strike up conversation with a visiting family and explain what makes SF better than wherever they came from. You have an appreciation for all classic SF features from the Golden Gate Bridge to a double-scoop of Bi-Rite ice cream on a warm (or cold, let’s be honest) day. Our drink recipe suggestion for you is the Pinnacle® Handsome Ginger: 1 part Pinnacle® Vodka, 2 parts ginger beer, and a splash of lime, topped with fresh mint.
Mostly B’s: Pinnacle® Cinnabon® Vodka
The food scene is what you enjoy most about living in SF. You love to overindulge in every sense of the word, from using your phone to hail a cab (despite the 3x price spike associated with the light drizzle outside) to combining dinner and a movie into one delectable experience. Our drink recipe suggestion for you is the Pinnacle® Cinnabon® Cider: 1 part Pinnacle® Cinnabon® Vodka and 2 parts apple cider, garnished with a cinnamon stick.
Mostly C’s: Pinnacle® Tropical Punch
You may live in an urban paradise, but you have a traveling itch that you just can’t shake. Whether you’re chowing down on local seafood specialties or putting aside every penny after the first of the month, you are always in planning mode for your big adventure away from this urban jungle that you call home. Our drink recipe suggestion for you is the Pinnacle® Beach House: 2 parts Pinnacle® Tropical Punch Vodka, 1 part Dekuyper® triple sec liquor, 3 parts cranberry juice, and a splash of lime juice, garnished with fresh berries.
Mostly D’s: Pinnacle® Whipped
You’re in constant search of that next big rush and when given the choice, always opt for extra whipped cream on top. You always stay active and thrive on being social whether that be at a big event downtown or cheering on your favorite sports team at the stadium. Our drink recipe suggestion for you is the Pinnacle® Orange Funsicle: 1 part Pinnacle® Whipped Vodka, 1 part orange juice, 1 part lemon-lime soda, and a splash of grenadine, garnished with an orange wedge.
Mostly E’s: Pinnacle® Citrus
You’re a trendy, outdoorsy hipster and you’re not afraid to show it. Hiking to the top of Twin Peaks in search of the perfect #onlyinsf Instagram opportunity and boycotting mainstream music at an underground show is what living in this city is all about. You’d rather be basking in the sun, drink in hand than anything else, on any day of the week. Our drink recipe suggestion for you is Pinnacle® Eiffel Twist: 1.5 parts Pinnacle® Citrus Vodka, 1.25 parts DeKuyper® Triple Sec, .5 parts fresh squeezed lemon, and 3 parts lemon-lime soda, garnished with a lime wedge.
