Mixologist Ryan Fitzgerald created this drink for the 2009 San Francisco Slow Food Festival using only local ingredients: The gin came from Distillery No. 209 (located at Pier 50 on Fisherman's Wharf), the apples for the juice from a Sonoma orchard and the lemon verbena from an urban garden run by his cousin.
