Cocktails at Trick Dog are served without an ounce of pretension, but they are certainly no less delicious.

At Trick Dog in San Francisco, drinks are made to be "delicious, not precious," but that doesn't mean the cocktails are at all lacking in complexity or presentation. In this video (shot by Jim Sullivan of Medium Raw Arts), Bon Vivants creative director and bartender Morgan Schick shows us what goes into making a single drink — from conception to prep to service. He also discusses the governing philosophies behind this widely beloved bar.
