That’s the Greek word for “cheers” and at Meze Greek Fusion in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, there’s a reason to raise a glass for a toast. The restaurant and bar has added three Greek Islands-inspired cocktails to its drink menu.
The creations of GBOD Hospitality Group Beverage Director Ryan Andrews, they are Una Facia Una Razza, an espresso martini made with Kettle One vodka, Mr. Black coffee, espresso, DropKick bold cold brew, ouzo and pistachio whipped cream; Almost Naked and Totally Famous, a mixture of Divino Maguey mezcal, Aperol, passion fruit, fresh lemon and a tajin ri; and Cucumber Ouzjito, a combination of Rumhaven coconut rum, cucumber, ouzo, mint, lime and sparkling water.
There are also new appetizers on the menu: keftedes, crispy, fried ground sirloin meatballs, made with fresh mint, garlic, onion and fennel; and octopus skaras, char-grilled Mediterranean octopus finished with latho lemono.
