Recipe: Ten Mile by Matt Lanning

This cocktail combines the warmth of whiskey and ginger (two tastes that go so well together) with vinegar and semi-sweet ale, which you might not normally put tgether. The whole cocktail was a nice, warm, slightly earthy, slightly spicy feel that seems to work especially well this time of year, when the days are darker and the nights are longer.

Adam commented “The idea behind this drink was to create a cocktail that would do three things, do the spirit justice, appeal to vodka drinkers, and appeal to the cocktail crowd.

This cocktail was a play with local and seasonal ingredients, taking a Portland spin on a South American source.

Recipe: The Zombie

Nowadays, there are almost as many different Zombie recipes as there are zombies in most low budget horror films. The reason for that is that while this cocktail has a long established name (1939), Don the Beachcomber, was very guarded with the recipes to his inventions, even keeping secret ingredients from his own staff at his bars. Our variant is a take off of the close-to-original brought back to “life” by Jeff “Beachbum” Berry.

The Savoy Cocktail Book suggests that a Corpse Reviver No. 2 “be taken before 11 a.m., or whenever steam and energy are needed.” For us, it is usually a brunch cocktail, enjoyed in the morning (or afternoon depending on our “steam and energy”).

Once upon a time the Daiquiri was not the gloppy sweet, faux fruit beverage dispensed from a slushee-machine at your French Quarter/Las Vegas/insert-other-home-of-debauchery-here tourist trap. It was once a fine sweet but tart drink, savored in pre-revolution Cuba, Florida, and elsewhere.

To the Boudoir

In honor of Valentine’s Day, Ms. Boozenik and I created a romantic dessert cocktail, somewhat reminiscent of a dark chocolate cherry truffle with a pinch of sea salt.

We recently attended a Novo Fogo cocktail event, and came away with a lovely Caipirinha recipe courtesy of Jacob Grier.

Slab Town Limited

This cocktail is a variant of the Red Hook, and rather than Slab Hook or Red Slab, which first occurred to me as names, Ms. Boozenik smartly chimed in that since this was a limited release, and also hits like a train (since it’s slightly higher in whiskey than a Red Hook would be) we should name it as if one. Hence, the Slab Town Limited.

The Oregroni

We’re fortunate in Portland to be able to eat a very diverse and enjoyable 100-mile diet. That started me thinking about 100-mile cocktails, too. Now that we have numerous gins, an Italian-style amaro, and vermouth produced in the Portland Metro Area, here’s my 100-mile take on the classic Negroni, which despite likely, and deserved groaning, I will call the Oregroni, because all of the finished ingredients are produced in Oregon.
