Monkey in the morning
Morning Fog, Canon
The bartender told me The Morning Fog and Lovebird are the two crowd favorites at the new upscale East Sac restaurant, Canon. I went with Morning Fog ($12): Monkey Shoulder blended whiskey, pür spice blood-orange liqueur, OJ and sweet vermouth, topped with a dried lemon slice. Catching a whiff before my first sip, the drink has a subtle cider smell. The smaller bits of ice gave it a pleasant slushee-like consistency. The Morning Fog is the kind of quality craft cocktail you’d expect in this clean, stylish spot. 1719 34th Street, https://canoneastsac.com.
