As summer fades, Oregonians increasingly turn to alcohol to stave off those SADD feelings. Charlie recommends a few ways to warm up as the weather grows cold and dreary.
- Spanish Coffee: "This is by far our most popular drink. It's made with Bacardi 151, Kahluah, and Triple Sec, so it's pretty strong, but the best part is watching us make it. Each bartender has their own technique--one guy pours it behind is head, I do it in a circleÉ we like to put on a show, show lots of flair."
- The Shakespeare: "I make a lot of theseÉ it's Kahlua, Nocello, Grand Marnier, and the glass is rimmed with cinnamon and sugar."
- Irish Coffee: "This one is mostly popular with old-timers looking for something simple that tastes like whiskey. We make it with Irish whiskey, brown sugar, and whipped cream."
