Cocktail hour is a BFD—and in a town that has loved its liquor since time began, it can offer an insightful snapshot of the city’s spirit if done just right. We’ve distilled the essence of San Francisco down to 50 drinks to try before you die—the 2014 edition. In the past year, we’ve witnessed the proliferation of the craft cocktail, the rebirth of the hotel bar, and the reimagining of favorite watering holes.
