Here are some of our favorite cocktails to enjoy with the Chinese food at one of your favorite bars, San Francisco Kitchen.


Mai Tai

This tropical cocktail with rum, lime juice, orgeat syrup, and orange liqueur pairs well with sweet and sour chicken or shrimp fried rice. It’s a classic Asian-inspired drink, so it’s the perfect choice for your favorite Chinese dishes.


Moscow Mule

Bring cultures together by enjoying a Moscow mule with some Chinese food. Made with vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice, the spicy and refreshing Moscow Mule can be an excellent match for spicy Szechuan dishes or dim sum.


Sake Martini

A fusion of Japanese sake and dry vermouth, garnished with a lemon twist or cucumber slice, which complements the delicate flavors of dishes like steamed dumplings or seafood dishes. It’s a great choice when you want to keep an East Asian theme between your meal and your drink.


Chinese 75

 A twist on the classic French 75, made with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and sparkling wine, offering a refreshing accompaniment to appetizers like spring rolls or potstickers. Asian traditions and cooking methods have found their way into Western food, so why not the drinks as well?


Tea-Based Cocktails

Tea is essential to Asian cultures. Try a Green Tea Mojito, Jasmine Tea Collins, or Oolong Old Fashioned to complement the flavors of various Chinese dishes.
