Part 3 of an interview with BrookeArthur, bar manager at Wo Hing. Part one of the interview is here. Read part two here.

Brooke Arthur's Napoleon's Vice, named simply after the image of the French general on the bottle of sherry, is new holiday cocktail on the list at Wo Hing General Store designed to be a low-alcohol winter tiki-style drink. According to Arthur, the drink is unique in that, "the acid in the cocktail comes mainly from the sherry and pineapple juice, instead of the usual larger pour of citrus."

Napoleon's Vice

1 ½ oz. Napoleon Amontillado Sherry

1 oz. Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Rum

½ oz. Benedictine

¼ oz. Small Hand pineapple gum syrup

½ oz. Fresh pressed pineapple juice

¼ oz. Lemon juice

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Nutmeg for garnishing


Mix all ingredients with ice and give it a quick shake to combine. Strain into double old fashioned glass with crushed ice, and grate fresh nutmeg over to garnish.

Wo Hing General Store, 584 Valencia (at 17th), 552-2510

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
