Toast To 2020

December 31, 2020

Wow, what a year it's been! 2020 will certainly go down in the books as a monumental one for all of us. We're sending it off with a classy cocktail and toasting to a New Year with only hope and happy thoughts ahead of us. 

This drink is also known as the Twentieth Century Cocktail and it's a somewhat forgotten little gem. It's a brilliant cocktail that brings together a few unlikely companions: While you may not think that gin, chocolate, and lemon work well together, this recipe offers a pleasant surprise. The mix of gin and crème de cacao is amazing and the lemon acts as a foil to the sweet liqueur. Adding the elegance of Lillet Blanc brings it all together to create a timeless sour drink.

Single Serving/Firelight 750 To-Go

• 1.5 / 6 oz. Gin
• 0.5 / 2 oz. Creme de Cacao 
• 0.5 / 2 oz. Lillet Blanc
• 0.25 / 1 oz. Fresh lemon juice

Pour all ingredients into a shaker. Add ice and shake. Strain and pour into your 375 or 750. Enjoy!

    Inspired by the underwater wildlife that would send any surfer’s adrenaline level to the max, this sweet and herbaceous cocktail pairs excellently with oysters on the halfshell, raw or char grilled. We use predominantly blanco tequila for the backbone, so the agave flavor shines through on every sip.

    Celebrating National Public Lands Day in Point Reyes National Seashore

    September 22, 2021

    Beginning your descent as you fly into SFO, you’ll see a knife edge gash of water cutting into California’s coastline, effectively separating Tomales Point from the rest of Marin County. You are looking at Tomales Bay, a body of water that is the actual San Andreas Fault. It’s part of fog-covered Point Reyes National Seashore and it’s also entirely encompassed by the infamous Red Triangle, home of the largest Great White Sharks in the world. This peninsula would absolutely be the part of California that slices off during an earthquake and also the destination we planned to celebrate 2021’s National Public Lands Day.
