Come Celebrate the Release of our Batch Cocktail Program
PORTLAND, Ore. (April 16, 2015) – The release of our batch cocktail program is here! To celebrate, on April 30 from 7-9 pm, we’re hosting a cocktail party complete with our innovative house made cocktails paired with sweet and savory bites that let the cocktails shine.
“A batch cocktail program suits our style of service,” says owner, Faith Dionne. “It’s fast, consistent, and more accessible. We’ve purposefully selected classic cocktails that batch well and pair with our dishes.”
In addition to the batch cocktail program, we’re celebrating the debut of New American and Coopers Hall’s new aperitif: Oro. Named after it’s golden color, Oro is evocative of a Spanish style vermouth with Oregon roots, of course. In addition to using local honey, Faith forages the special Oregon ingredients and grows the herbs herself. The experience of tasting Oro is integrated and layered- the wormwood and sweet spices hit your nose and the bitterness giving way to the honey and sweet spices.
Why vermouth? Faith has always been an enthusiast. “I really like the complexity of flavors that’s in each bottle, especially with the Old World Spanish and Italian styles. I wanted to turn my hobby into something that I could pursue at a small level. Partnering with Rob Karmin at Coopers Hall seemed to be a natural fit.” Oro is now being served on-tap at New American and Coopers Hall.
For the cocktail party, the purchase of each cocktail will come with a sweet or savory bite. Savor a glass of Oro with a creamy chicken liver mousse, or bite into an Oro honey foam chocolate and sip an Old Square cocktail.
Below is a sample of our house cocktails that will be served:
Bourbon, Brandy, Oro Vermouth, Benedictine, with a cherry
Gin, Cocchi Americano, and Dolin Dry Vermouth with Lemon Twist
Tequila Reposada, Punt e Mes, Cappelleti, and Lemon
Whether you are a cocktail enthusiast, a lover of vermouth, or a novice waiting to learn it all: you will have a veritable delight at your fingertips, taking you on a journey through the tastes and flavors we have to offer.
