Honoring SALLY RAND with a Specialty Cocktail

June 18, 2011


You may not know Sally Rand by name but you’ve definitely seen the Grande Dame of SF burlesque in the famous naked ladies picture that has become the emblem of Pier 23 Cafe…(she’s the only one wearing her hat!)

In 1939, she brought her famous Nude Ranch to the Golden Gate International Exposition held on Treasure Island.  With a line of beautiful naked girls in tow she made herself known real quick!  The Nude Ranch attraction was soon the most popular event of the fair… what a surprise!

In honor of her ingenuity and spirit we came up with this titillating specialty cocktail, the SALLY RAND, mixed with Skyy ginger vodka, pear liqueur, lemon juice and garnished with a slice of lemon.  A dazzling cocktail with a little bit of sweet and a whole lotta kick. Just like the lady herself!
