This avocado cocktail from San Francisco’s Trick Dog began as a joke, when bar manager Morgan Schick threatened to make a cocktail with an avocado-based salad dressing. However, once Schick actually gave avocado some thought and came up with the idea to combine the fruit with almond milk, the cocktail practically made itself. The drink’s name is derived from the 1884 presidential election, when Dr. Samuel D. Burchard blamed the Democrats for “rum [Prohibition], Romanism [Catholicism] and rebellion [the Civil War].” Namesake aside, no one can be blamed for loving this mixture of rum, Suze and avocado milk.
