Nightlife: Critic's Pick

Best Specialty Shot

Fernet Branca
As tasted at Blue Box, 312 Pearl Pkwy,
(210) 227-2583, blueboxbar.com

It may be cheating to choose straight liquor, but trust us on this one: Skip the nonsense fruity shots and go straight for the Fernet Branca. This amaro is the perfect after dinner stomach settler, palate cleanser, taste bud awakener, breath freshener, bartender’s choice, miracle cure-all for what ails you, hipster Jäger and everything else in between. Fernet is increasingly found in many of the finer watering holes around town, but its food-happy digestif qualities point us toward the Pearl’s culinary compound, specifically Blue Box, though any nice, stocked bar near your next great meal will do.
