A classic on the San Francisco restaurant scene, the Slanted Door’s drink menu has always been derived from the classics (and, more specifically,  Charles H. Baker classics). For those not familiar with the geek factor associated with Baker’s bon vivant travels around South America, the menu is a firsthand guide to another century of drinking on the other side of the equator. Erik Adkins has helmed this place since the early days, drawing inspiration from New York’s technique-driven approach to cocktails and San Francisco’s maniacal dedication to fresh ingredients.
