Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Newly-opened Santa Ana, California, bar Vacation serves libations that are inspired by the staff’s travels to destinations both exotic and domestic. It’s easy to guess where bar director Gaby Mlynarczyk was channeling when she created the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France. A fruity take on the classic Absinthe Frappé, her version is mixed with raspberry eau de vie, nutty orgeat and aquafaba—aka chickpea water—for a luxuriously viscous (and egg-free) texture. A splash of Lacroix Berry seltzer gives the drink a light, effervescent finish.
