The new menu, which was launched to mark the sixth anniversary of the American bar, features on-tap highballs, stirred down cocktails and large-format sharing drinks.

Polite Provisions co-founder Erick Castro said: “From its opening day, Polite Provisions electrified the San Diego drinks scene and has become a destination for locals, as well as travellers to the city, who are seeking sophisticated cocktails without a whiff of pretence.

“Our new menu reflects the evolution of our guests’ palates, with many more stirred cocktails grounded in traditional classics. We also feature some ‘Trojan Horse’ drinks that slyly incorporate surprising, funky and delicious new spirits into familiar quaffs.”

On-tap cocktails from the latest menu include the Bounty Hunter, which combines London Dry gin, roasted pineapple and house-made pandan soda, and the Teardrop Tattoo, made with mezcal, blanco Tequila and mango soda.

Other highlights from the menu include Ballad of Buster Scruggs, described as “an earthy Manhattan based on Canadian whisky, with Scarborough Bitters adding a subtle oregano note”, and House of Blue Leaves, which is made with baijiu, ume plum liqueur and sparkling saké.

Sharing cocktails available at Polite Provisions include The Persephone Punch, which combines London Dry gin, lemon, grapefruit, lychee, elderflower, star anise and pink yuzu bitters, and The Prickly Punch, inspired by a red Starburst sweet and made with blanco Tequila, lime, prickly pear, orange, vanilla bean and sour cherry bitters.
