A night of craft cocktails & reverie at a historic San Francisco spot

Sometimes, we hit the town – and when we do, we always make sure to bring enough vodka for all our friends! Our Tosca Party featured several handcrafted cocktails made specifically by Isaac Shumway to suit our vodkas and to pair with the updated classic Italian bites Tosca is famous for. It was such an honor to be able to host a party celebrating our innovative, organic, grape-based vodka in a space that holds such a significant place in San Francisco history. As Michael Bauer of the San Francisco Chronicle puts it, “Tosca is a place that celebrates San Francisco, a place where everyone can feel at home.” And this is exactly why we chose Tosca to celebrate our vodka: as a family owned and operated spirits company, we value community above all. The night was an absolute blast, with our friends, family, and fans all mixing, mingling and communing over cocktails and food, and we can’t wait for the next one! Below, recipes from the event so you can relive the moment, and a gallery of our favorite shots to reminisce on!
