Monday, May 13, 2019 - 5:00pm to 11:00pm

Join us on Monday, May 13 as we launch George's Level2's second concept cocktail menu, The Flora of San Diego.

Hailed as one of the best climate’s in the world, San Diego’s consistent year-round weather provides ideal growing conditions for a wide array of herbs, citrus and vegetables. Volume Number 2 is an exploration through San Diego’s wild flora as told through a collection of 24 original craft cocktails.

The menu, designed as a hardbound book, features illustration of each flora alongside scenic destination imagery, and photographs of each cocktail with its accompanying recipe. Inspired by the iconic Torrey Pine, the Shiso Piney features Anchor gin with a pine tincture that presents a woodsy bitterness and mild vegetal undertones derived from pine needles. A tart, fruit-forward cocktail, The Last Kumquat blends Appleton Estate rum with a house kumquat cordial, while The Wisdom Cobbler brings forward a sweet, stone fruit quality through a rich savory syrup derived from dehydrated elderberries.

Drawing inspiration from the concept menu trend, the George’s Level2 team is striving to bring a heightened level of sophistication to the local bar community and enhance the region’s cocktail culture.

“Neighborhoods of San Diego, our first concept menu, was a huge success. With our second concept menu, we are continuing to tell the story of San Diego through cocktails that embody our unique sense of place, and in doing so providing a nod to the vibrant surroundings that make our region so distinct,” said Peters. “We are excited to continue our focus on defining San Diego’s culinary expression,” said Trey Foshee, Executive Chef/Partner. “Our California Modern menu gives guests an opportunity to experience San Diego on a plate, and with our one-of-a-kind Level2 cocktail menu we give them a chance to savor San Diego in a glass.”

Sample these new concoctions at our launch party sponsored by Beam Suntory and Campari. In addition to all 24 cocktails from the new concept menu, which will be $4 off the regular price, happy hour food will be available all evening. Copies of Floras of San Diego can be purchased on site for $30.
