Trick Dog Collaborated With 16 Chefs for Its Newest Cocktail Menu

As the famed cocktail bar has done every six months, Trick Dog expunged its entire roster of cocktails to make room for an entirely new theme. Starting today and running through Dec. 31, Trick Dog unveiled “The Joy of Cocktails,” a collaboration between their team and 16 San Francisco chefs, representing restaurants like Cala, Liholiho Yacht Club, and State Bird Provisions.

The name is a reference to the never-out-of-print 1936 cookbook, Joy of Cooking, and all the riffs on that simple title that followed, such as Bob Ross’ The Joy of Painting. As with Trick Dog’s previous cocktail themes — Pantone colors, astrology, Mission murals — it takes an idea and runs with it to the very nth degree.

A companion to the menu, a $45 book with photographs by Sonya Yu, The Joy of Cocktails: A Trick Dog Cookbook, is on sale with proceeds benefiting the food-business incubator for immigrant women, La Cocina. As you might expect, some of the recipes are rather more involved than your average highball. Sarah and Evan Rich’s involves infusing Elyx vodka with Douglas fir tips, and making your own shiso-avocado simple syrup. Cámara’s includes straining chilies through a chinoise for a salsa negra.

But once again: Trick Dog did it. Here is the full list of chef partners. Drink up!
