Oakland has some pretty good drinks. A few that I really like:
- Gin and Tonic from Pizzaiolo; the tonic is a house made tonic by Cate Whalen
- As good as the gin and tonic is, I like their whiskey cocktail better. It’s made with Buffalo Trace bourbon whiskey (my favorite liquor)
- Linden St. Black Lager or their Common Lager are really nice, can only be found on tap at just a few places.
- Blue Bottle’s Bella Donovan coffee is what I normally drink for coffee (daily basis)
Haven’t really tried Numi tea, another Oakland company. We want to but just haven’t pulled the trigger we have so much tea in the house. I get tea from Teance in Berkeley, their ba bao chao and pu-erh teas and we also get tea from Republic of Tea, Ginseng peppermint and several other kinds. We’ve got a lot of tea. We’ll try Numi eventually.
