San Diego's best cocktails

With a 'tail program modeled after NYC's famed Milk & Honey, NE's tiny, exclusive boozery tucked behind some expertly stacked kegs makes our Favorite 5 due to its cozy interior, plus the new winter "suggestions" menu featuring bangers like the "Flores" (reposado Tequila, mezcal, Pedro Ximenez sherry, mole bitters) and the rye/ lemon/ sugar/ egg white/ absinthe "Rattlesnake", which should help bolster your confidence when attempting to pull tail.
