Girasol Cocktail

San Francisco neighborhood joint Nopa has garnered a lot of attention for its tasty, straightforward food, but it’s the drinks that keep us coming back. The Sunshine Bitters in this recipe are made in-house and used in this aptly named cocktail, which gets its moniker from an opal that glows reddish under light.

What to buy: St-Germain is a sweet and floral elderflower liqueur. It can be found at high-end liquor stores and online.

Amontillado sherry is a medium-dry sherry with a distinctive nutty flavor.

  3. 3Strain into the chilled cocktail glass and garnish with the lemon twist.
