      Learn The Most Popular Cocktails In California

      In California, our cocktail scene mirrors the state's diverse culinary landscape, with a focus on fresh, locally-sourced ingredients and innovative combinations.

      The Napa Valley Negroni is a popular choice in our school, featuring locally crafted gin, California vermouth, and a splash of bitter orange liqueur, paying homage to the state's wine country. The San Francisco Sunrise captures the spirit of the city with a mix of artisanal tequila, fresh-squeezed Valencia orange juice, and a float of locally-produced grenadine, creating a vibrant and visually striking cocktail.

      Southern California's influence can be seen in the SoCal Paloma, blending top-shelf tequila with grapefruit soda, a touch of agave nectar, and a rim of Tajín, reflecting the region's love for citrusy, refreshing flavors. The Malibu Breeze pays tribute to the iconic beach city, combining coconut rum, pineapple juice, and a splash of California-made passion fruit liqueur, providing a taste of the laid-back coastal lifestyle.

      California's drinking culture is marked by a commitment to sustainability, and many cocktails feature ingredients sourced from local farmers' markets. The state's major cities, such as Los Angeles and San Diego, have unique influences on the cocktail scene, with mixologists often drawing inspiration from the multicultural flavors that define these urban landscapes.
