They only live to get radical. Sandbar knows you’ll be feeling that way after a few sips of the Point Break Paloma. Olmeca Altos Blanco tequila, fresh grapefruit juice, fresh lime juice, agave nectar, citrus soda and grapefruit bitters with a salt rim. You’ll be watching the waves break with Bodhi and Johnny Utah after a couple of these.

Hey, careful, man, there’s a beverage here! The Dude’s favorite beverage has undergone a little transformation at True North Tavern in North Park. The Dude’s classic White Russian has gotten a San Diego hipster twist. The mixologists over at True North have created The Dude Abides. Made with Fugu Horchata vodka, Kahlua coffee liqueur, Modern Times cold brew, cream and sprinkled with cinnamon. It’s The Big Lebowski!
