i dream of cocktails: wilson's smash

In celebration of one of my newest and most favorite friends' birthday, we checked out 15 Romolo in North Beach, right in the heart of all the strip clubs (convenient, right? just kidding). With menus that look like old newspapers (swoon), an old school photo booth, juke box and all around spiffy decor, I couldn't help but fall in love. Though we ordered a bevy of appetizers - all of which were pretty good - the real winner was a certain cocktail, Wilson's Smash. Created by one of their bartenders, Wilson's Smash combines a hefty serving of rum with caramelized pineapple, absinthe and bitters and is topped with just the right amount of mint leaves. 

It was so good we ordered two pitchers and never looked back.

Too bad I don't have any caramelized pineapple lying around the house :(

HA! 2 pitchers? Y'all were bound to have a good night. I don't blame you though, rum and caramelized pineapple? Yum.
