Where to Get Batched Cocktails on Tap

We’ve been aware of the phenomenon of tap cocktails for a while now, pouring out of a spout like wine or beer, but two’s a trend! Following the lead of Kevin Diedrich at Jasper’s Corner Tap, where they’ve had pre-mixed Negronis on tap since they opened two years ago, Grand Café also has both straight Chartreuse, and a Chartreuse-and-Cognac-enhanced Old Fashioned on tap now too. And Jasper’s has a rotating spout which currently pours the Grand Promenade (Wild Turkey 81 Rye, Applejack, Benedictine, yellow Chartreuse). Now if only this trend would catch on further in our city’s more slowly moving bars… perhaps someone should take a cue from Chicago’s Scott Huth, who keeps eight cocktails, including two carbonated ones, on tap at Tavernita. Huth and Diedrich actually taught a class together at last year’s Tales of the Cocktail, so hopefully more bar folk were listening. [SFist]
