Kiss My Glass: Liquid City


As a Mexican American growing up in Southern California, Erick Castro points to fruits and other fresh produce from his childhood as the perfect catalyst to propel him into the bartending scene later in life. Along with the fresh, inventive cocktails he creates, Castro is a partner in North Park hot spot Polite Provisions, as well as a documentarian with the film Bartender at Large.

Hear what else Castro had to say about the San Diego coktail scene he called “Liquid City” in this third episode podcast collaboration between PACIFIC and Eating and Drinking In San Diego.
