The Fog Cutter cocktail is a refreshing yet boozy tropical drink with a complex blend of flavors. The origins of the Fog Cutter are hazy, with some claiming it was invented in the 1930s at the Hurricane Bar in Hollywood, while others say it was first crafted at the Trader Vic’s in Oakland.

Whatever the case may be, this cocktail has become a classic, appearing in several bars and restaurants across the world. The name “Fog Cutter” comes from its supposed ability to cut through the San Francisco fog, making it a perfect drink for any time of the year, but especially on a hot summer day.
