333 Pacific’s Pier View Cocktail

Place

333 Pacific

333 N. Pacific Street, Oceanside

One of the newest items on 333 Pacific’s drink menu is bar manager Kevin Kitchen’s Pier View cocktail. Named in honor of the third-of-a-mile-long Oceanside Pier that serves as the restaurant’s nighttime vista, Kitchen’s concoction is a fruity potion with a nostalgic twist of taste.

“We were planning on adding a couple more components,” he says, “but when we tasted it with cranberry and pineapple juice, I ended up having one of those Alfred Hitchcock flashbacks to my childhood. I was eating fruit cocktail. I had a strong memory of sitting there with my brothers and fighting over the cherry. I thought it tasted just like Dole fruit cocktail syrup.”

A much lighter version of this viscous varietal from a can — at only 150 calories — Kitchen says, the Pier View, like its namesake, is also a visual delight,

“When you shake it properly, really hard,” he says, “because of the pineapple juice, you get a really fine froth over the top of the drink that looks neat.”

And the Pier View has an added feature — “We garnish it with a cherry because, as we tell people, that way you don’t have to fight over it.”

Kevin Kitchen

Kitchen Proof: With a mix of fruit flavors, the Pier View also shows a gentle suggestion of the vodka underneath, which reminds your taste buds that they’ve grown up since last they’ve had fruit cocktail.

333 Pacific’s Pier View Cocktail

In a cocktail shaker with ice, pour:

  • 2 oz. Pinnacle mango vodka
  • 1/2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz. cranberry juice

After vigorous shaking, pour into a martini glass, garnish with the provocative maraschino, and let bygones be bygones.
