As part of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter 150-year celebration and “friendly” competition, Salt & Whiskey has created a special Dusty Rabbit cocktail. Paying homage to the neighborhood’s “Rabbitville” nickname, the Dusty Rabbit competition pits local establishments against each other to find out which bar/restaurant can create the most delicious craft cocktail.

The Salt & Whiskey San Diego entry is a creative combination of whiskey, roasted beet juice and roasted carrot juice. Finished, of course, with basil ears.



2 oz Hochstadter’s Rye Whiskey

.25 oz Roasted Beet Juice

.25 oz Fire Roasted Carrot Juice

.25oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

.1 oz Maple Syrup

Garnished with beet powder and basil
