Pipes Martini

Miguel Zamora, manager and mixologist at Pacific Coast Grill, says that the restaurant’s sweeping oceanfront views provide the inspiration for his innovative cocktail creations. “The Pipes Martini is the perfect cocktail for a great day at the beach. At the restaurant, it goes hand in hand with our wide array of seafood options.”
