Drink of the Week: Dosa's Smoked Cup

When a table of two ladies first tasted the Smoked Cup cocktail at

Dosa on Fillmore (1700 Fillmore at Geary) — a tall, brown glass garnished with an olive, cocktail onion, cucumber, and chunks and peels of citrus — we both proclaimed it to be a “man's drink.” But as the ice in the blend of Benesin Organic Mezcal, Pimm's No. 1 Cup, black cardamom tincture, ginger beer, cucumber, and smoked sea salt began to melt and dilute the party, touches of sweet youth (ginger beer) and subtle femininity (cardamom and salt) came out to play. This Cup is enjoyable no matter what your chromosomal makeup.
