One of my favorite cocktails during the Great America Distillers Festival Cocktail Competition was the winner in the final round. All the winners from the day before had 15 minutes to pick two secret ingredients and have a cocktail ready for the judges. Art Tierce walked up, took a taste of each secret ingredient, and in roughly half the time allowed, proceeded to own the whole thing.

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.
