It’s hard to believe that football season is getting underway. Here in the Bay Area there is strong support for our local teams – the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders. In anticipation of the preseason games, the mixologists at Sidewinder have prepared two new cocktails – the 49er Gold Rush (representing the 49ers) and the Silver and Black (representing the Raiders). Try them both – no need to pick a favorite until the season begins.

Silver and Black


  • 1 oz Casamigos BlancoTequila
  • 1 oz Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur
  • ½ oz espresso
  • Heavy whipping cream


Place all ingredients but the cream into a mixing tin. Add ice. Shake for 15 seconds then double strain into a coupe glass. Float heavy cream on top.
