Best Boba Drink (Alcoholic) 


3198 16th St., 415-552-5771,
Alcoholic boba cocktails haven’t taken off in San Francisco just yet, but Chino, a year-old pan-Asian (and sorta Latino) restaurant from the owners of Tacolicious might change that. The Dr. J, a premixed slushie (made with rum, orange, vanilla, and condensed milk) is a huge improvement over that ’80s mall taste sensation, the Orange Julius. And the Boba Fett, an intergalactic combination of vodka, apple, ginger, Thai basil, and lemon, will have you seeing stars if you sip it too quickly (which you will). They’re served with a sealed plastic lid and giant straw the way they are at mainstream boba tea places like the Taiwanese titan Quickly, but they contain a naughty surprise.
