Here's where you'll be able to get the Highball deal on the Westside of Portland:
Proof•Reader's Thyme in a Bottle
1.5 oz Suntory Whisky Toki, 6.5 oz housemade blackberry thyme soda. Bottled, chilled, and served garnished with a thyme sprig.
“Inspired by the popular single-serving cocktails prevalent in Japanese vending machines.”
Driftwood Room's A Tipple Named Desire
1.5 oz Maker’s Mark, .5 oz Bonal Gentiane-Quina, .5 oz Cynar liqueur, 2 dashes of barrel-aged bitters, and a float of Laphroig 10-Year-Old whiskey. Garnished with a lemon wheel dipped in granulated honey.
"The name was inspired by the Marlon Brando film A Streetcar Named Desire, a film that challenged and changed Hollywood forever with its sexy and scandalous tale. The Driftwood Room has been called one of the sexiest bars in Portland, with its leather banquettes and candlelit entirety; we believe this Brando Classic fits the ambiance that the Driftwood Room is known for. We want our guests to be able to sit back, sip on 'A Tipple Named Desire,' and be thrown back in time to the heyday of Marlon Brando and Gene Kelly.”
Tryst's Mayari's Rule
1.5 oz Courvoisier VS Cognac, .5 oz Rothman & Winter Apricot Liqueur, .25 oz Cappelletti Vino Apertivo, Bittermen's Elemakule Tiki bitters, .75 oz lime juice, and egg whites. Served on the rocks with an orange twist.
“Mayari is an ancient Tagalog deity of the Philippines—she is the goddess of the moon, war, revolution, and the right to equal rule. Healing and lunar emotions were her thing, as well as having a bounty of forgiveness. A complex woman goddess deserves a Tiki-style drink named after her, by all means.”
Valentines' Cash the Check
1.5 oz Sauza Hornitos Reposado Tequila, splash of pineapple juice, dash of yuzu juice, topped with soda. Served on the rocks, with a smoked salt rim.
Senate's Portland Cocktail
1.5 oz Maker's Mark bourbon, .75 oz fresh lemon juice, .375 oz homemade ginger syrup, .375 oz Orgeat syrup, .5 oz Aperol, and a couple of dashes of bitters, served in a coupe with a lemon peel.
“A delicious component of our new cocktail program.”
Bluehour's The Eddie Ford
1.5 oz Jim Beam Bourbon, 1.00 oz lemon juice, 0.25 oz simple syrup, shaked and rolled into a footed pilsner glass and topped with 1.5 oz sparkling wine, 1.5 oz Cock & Bull Ginger Beer, garnished with candied lemon peel.
Tilt (Pearl)'s North of Late
2 oz North 44 Nectarine Vodka, .5 oz Aperol, 1 oz orange cardamom syrup, .5 oz lemon juice, .5 oz simple syrup, 1 dash of grapefruit bitters. Shaken, strained into a highball glass, and topped with soda and an orange peel.
Low Brow Lounge's Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Cherry Bomb
1.5 oz Jim Beam Black, .5 oz fresh lemon juice, .5 oz fresh lime juice, simple syrup. Topped with Knob Creek Cherry Bitters and a bourbon-soaked cherry.
“Inspiration: The Runaways.”
Wilfs' Nina Simone
Blueberry vodka, lemonade, splash of brut sparkling, and pomegranate juice. Shaken, with a sugar rim.
“Wilfs is known for its local jazz scene. Nina Simone could not be a better representation of this fact!”
Rae's Lakeview Lounge's Make Her Presbyterian
1.5 oz Makers Mark, ginger ale, three dashes of Fee Brothers Orange Bitters. Served on the rocks in a collins glass with a long straw, and garnished with single leaf of fresh mint.
“The press has made a big comeback in recent years—a much-varied, simple highball that is often no more complicated than vodka with Sprite and soda (though it's more mysterious and fun to say 'vodka press' rather than 'vodka soda-Sprite’). We thought using bourbon instead of the traditional Scotch would really bring out the Episcopalian.”
