Dave's Addition ($12)
Ladd's Addition is Portland's oldest planned residential neighborhood. Dave Shenaut wanted to pay tribute to the legacy with his own 'addition.' This herbaceous Manhattan variation uses housemade green walnut liqueur paired with Knob Creek Rye, Carpano Antica vermouth, and Luxardo Maraschino. The cocktail is rich and nutty with a spicy-sweet finish.
Pendennis Cocktail ($9)
The tart and refreshing Pendennis Cocktail is made with Beefeater gin, local Stone Barn Brandyworks apricot liqueur, Peychaud's bitters, and lime juice.
Whiskey Flight ($15)
The bar team tasted through individual barrels from Four Roses, Elijah Craig, and Eagle Rare before selecting their own 50-gallon barrels to bottle and serve at the bar and sell at Portland-area liquor stores. The three whiskeys they chose are served in a flight that will be available until the barrels run dry.
Saratoga Cocktail ($12)
"We want to support local ingredients whenever possible and appropriate," says Shenaut. "In the case of the Saratoga cocktail, we selected Clear Creek Apple Brandy for its quality and genuine apple flavor." The brandy is mixed with Knob Creek Rye, Cocchi Vermouth di Torino, and Jerry Thomas bitters. The result is semi-sweet and slightly savory.
