The craft cocktail movement in San Diego gains a new feather with the opening of the gorgeous open air Fairweather, the brainchild of Consortium’s cocktail guru Anthony Schmidt. Located above Rare Form, a contemporary restaurant and delicatessen owned by the same people, Fairweather is a spacious rooftop oasis which boasts a great view of Padres’ Petco Park stadium. It’s a lovely summery space all blue and white tile with splashes of greenery and sunflower yellow, and plenty of communal seating for chilling out with a drink on long clement evenings. The menu concept fittingly, is dedicated to “drinks from sunny places,” so think tropical flavours and an abundance of mezcal, rum and tequila, the zing of citrus and the clink of ice cubes. There are 32 cocktails to choose from including tried and tested classics like the daiquiri as well as tiki staples like the Piña Colada, the Zombie, and the Painkiller. From the Fairweather Signature collection, the Oaxacan Dead is a Mexican riff on the Zombie which uses Mezcal as well as rum, while the Rum Row is an aged variant on the Old Fashioned laced with coconut bitters and banana liqueur. There are also a range of craft beers on tap if that’s how you roll.

Martini: know your Dry from your Dirty The Martini is to drinking what the two-step is to dance: great its own but also a solid base with which to experiment. Any discerning drinker worth their salt (or olive brine) should have at least a passing acquaintance with it. The bartender’s lips may say she’s not judging you for not knowing your dry from your dirty, but her eyes tell a different story.
