XXX Martini

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

Frisson • San Francisco

Even Duggan McDonnell's wackiest drinks—like his vodka martini that's spiked with a generous shot of black squid ink—have the sublime balance of a classic cocktail.

"I feel like you need to have one cocktail on your menu that is controversial," says McDonnell. "It gives people a sense of discovery."
