Rare Society Solana Beach’s New Cocktail Menu Takes A Meaty Twist

Trust Restaurant Group’s newest venture, Rare Society Solana Beach, has introduced an elevated cocktail program to the Cedros Design District paying homage to the traditional steakhouse concept. Helmed by Bar Manager Colin Berger, who taps inspiration from his experience leading Michelin-rated programs, brings a unique mix of handcrafted libations to the menu.

Guests will find a refreshing take on timeless spirits, and classics with a twist such as The Rare Old Fashioned which comes garnished with charred rosemary, crispy bacon, largo, and wagyu bourbon cherry to highlight the flavor of a dry-aged, fat-washed bourbon. The fat-washing process takes 24 hours, reflecting the thoughtful layering of flavor that is prevalent in every sip.
