Local Libations

Planning a summer potluck? Consider creating a booze bar where only locally made or sold spirits are served. Here’s a few to get you started.



HANSON VODKA The Hanson family of Tiburon has been distilling award-winning organic fruit-infused vodka since 2013; its original vodka was just awarded 96 points by the Ultimate Spirits Challenge of New York. This certified gluten-free spirit is distilled in Sonoma, comes in five different flavors and is sold at most specialty retailers in Marin. hansonofsonoma.com

LAUGHING GLASS No mixing needed for these low-calorie margaritas concocted by two Marin moms, Carey Clahan and Sydney Rainin-Smith, who also made sure the drinks were all-natural, vegan and gluten-free. Available in regular or pomegranate flavor, throughout California. laughingglasscocktails.com

SALT POINT A Moscow mule in a can? This great idea was hatched right here in Mill Valley by Marin native Heather Wyatt. You’ll find the fun-filled four-packs at most Bay Area Whole Foods and Mollie Stone’s stores. saltpoint.co

SAMMY’S BEACH BAR RUM We’re willing to bet very few people know how to emulate the taste of the islands better than Sammy Hagar, and his eponymous Beach Bar Rum is, ahem, proof. This cane rum sourced from the fields of Hawaii will add a bit of aloha to any gathering. sammysbeachbarrum.com

SANTO This unique black bottle is also the brainchild of Hagar: bonding over a love of tequila with buddy Adam Levine, he found a team to create the world’s first “mezquila,” a blend of tequila and mescal. santomezquila.com
