Unique Cocktails to Try in Mill Valley – And Where to Find Them

No matter what spirit you prefer, you can find a delicious drink in a delightful atmosphere.

Meeting up with friends and enjoying a well-earned drink is a great way to unwind after a long week. So why not step out of your comfort zone, spruce things up, and order something more exciting than your classic glass of red wine?

If you’re in Mill Valley, California, you’re in the right place to enjoy an enticing end-of-the-week cocktail. Check out the below list of our favorite local cocktails and where you can find them. These tasty beverages will soon become a staple in your weekend plans.

The Quarantini

Most of us know the Quarantini as the make-at-home cocktail developed during the COVID-19 quarantine. But even though our favorite restaurants opened up again, this drink has stuck around. It turns out that the Quarantini is a popular drink, whether we’re stuck at home or out for happy hour.

Although the Quarantini itself is simple — made from two ounces of gin, a splash of orange bitters, and a citrus zest—the outcome is a mouthwatering treat that will have you asking for more. Fortunately, you no longer have to enjoy this drink on your sofa. Floodwaters, a Mill Valley family-owned-and-operated restaurant, is known for its Quarantini cocktails, enticing social atmosphere, and elegantly approachable Californian menu.

La Capital

Head to Playa on Throckmorton Avenue in Mill Valley for an array of Mexican-inspired signature cocktails. Our favorite, La Capital, is the restaurant’s version of a traditional Manhattan cocktail. Instead of the usual bourbon, Playa takes it up a notch by mixing Se Busca Mezcal, Pedro X.O. & Oloroso Jerez, orange bitters, and barrel-aged xocolatl bitters. If you like La Capital, try one of the restaurant’s many other signature cocktails, all made with Playa’s housemade shrubs, tinctures, bitters, syrups, and salts. Enjoy your cocktail inside the lively and colorful restaurant or outdoors on the fun and sun-drenched patio.

The Dirty Shirley

The Dirty Shirley has been dubbed “the drink of the summer” by the New York Times, and it’s certainly worth seeking out this sweet tipple that is tinged with nostalgia. The Dirty Shirley takes the mocktail formula of a Shirley Temple – which traditionally includes grenadine, lemon-lime soda, and a maraschino cherry – and adds vodka to the mix. Belly up to the bar at the Rock & Rye, the new restaurant and bar at Sweetwater Music Hall, and ask the bartender to fix you this year’s hottest drink.
