Rock that cocktail

Martini, Virgin Sturgeon

There’s no better place to enjoy the classic California cocktail than while floating on the Sacramento River in this classic California-casual restaurant. If it’s evening, and your bartender is a white-haired man, that’s Mark, and if he’s not too busy to visit, you’re in a good place. Hang out there and chat. But definitely take your second drink out to the deck, perch it on the rail and take in the sights and aroma of the river … ahh. When a motorboat passes, and the wake hits, observe the marvel that is a rockin’ martini. By the way: Gin, stirred, three olives. 577 Garden Highway; (916) 921-2694.
