The Spanish Gin & Tonic No. 6 at SOCA

 In Drink This Now

It’s all about the gin at Chef Aaron Robbins’ Sherman Oaks spot SOCA. While SOCA is known for its steak and seafood dishes, we are all about the curated Spanish Gin & Tonic program, a menu featuring six different varieites of the cocktail including the Spanish G&T No. 6 with Malfy fin, Fever Tree Indian tonic, Shiso leaf, strawberry and pink peppercorn.

“SOCA has a relaxed, coastal Mediterranean resort kind of vibe, so Spanish gin and tonics naturally struck us as the perfect cocktail to compliment both the atmosphere and Chef Robins’ cuisine: bright, fresh flavors, a focus on quality ingredients, and an elevated spin on something very familiar and comfortable,” GM/partner Rory Snipes tells Thirsty.

There are other options including the Spanish G&T No. 1 with Gin Mare, fever Tree Mediterranean tonic, kumquats and thyme and the Spanish G&T No. 4 with Few Breakfast gin, Fever Tree Mediterranean tonic, Meyer lemon peel, chocolate mint and dehydrated blueberry. We suggest trying them all.
