The folks behind the bar at B&B mixed up some mighty good French 75's, martinis, and Negronis. My bartender, whose name escapes me, kept me well hydrated, preventing any drunken gin-related debacles. I'm typically not a huge Negroni fan (at least not with Campari), but B&B makes a darn good one. A few nights ago I used the No. 3 gin to make a Negroni with Gran Classico bitters, and it was amazing. For folks in the Bay Area, you can find the No. 3 at Cask or K&L Wine Merchant for about $40-44 a bottle.
