Cool off with these fun cocktails from San Francisco and beyond this summer

Can you even call it summer if you’re not sipping a refreshing cocktail? Around the Bay Area, new bars have surfaced within the past seven months, and after a grueling year for bars, we think drinks are in order. SFGATE’s Food + Drink team visited some of the newcomers found throughout San Francisco and beyond to try a selection of tropical to low-proof drinks. Drinks aside, many of the new bars come with a playful atmosphere, like Jaranita’s festive dining space and garden-centric bar Propagation. The only problem you’ll have is deciding which place to hit first.

MI SU Street Food’s ‘eclectic and fun’ Mexican fusion menu debuts downtown

Only good things can come from a business built on a foundation of freshly made flour tortillas. 

MI SU Street Food doesn’t literally have tortillas for tires, but owners Alden and Hylene Garcia build a lot of their out-of-the-box, Mexican-style menu items around their authentic, homemade tortillas.
