The signature drink of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel on Powell St. in San Francisco, the secret is the smidge of maple syrup that magically blends the Fonseca Bin 27 Ruby Port and bourbon together. Seemingly everyone who has visited this ornate hotel bar remembers its "old school" Prohibition ambience and the Bar Drake Manhattan.
