Drink of The Week: Basil Canteen's Full Moon

It was more like a half moon outside on the night we stopped by Basil Canteen (1489 Folsom) and enjoyed the restaurant's Full Moon of house-infused ginger vodka with juices of pear and cranberry. This cocktail is so well-balanced that it would be perfectly easy to drink it a little bit too quickly, but sipping it slowly is a rewarding experience, as the spears of fresh ginger bring out a deeper flavor the longer it marinates. If you enjoy that pleasant little burn of the root, chewing on the spears provides a stimulating counterpoint to the drink.
