Five Must-Try Fall Cocktails in Portland

Five Must-Try Fall Cocktails in Portland

Ready to cool down after a long Portland summer? Sipping on these cocktails may not make scarf weather come any faster but at least you’ll be in the right state of mind. Earthy ingredients such as maple, cinnamon and autumn apples come together to remind everyone the joys of the season in these great fall cocktails.

Wired Pair at Rum Club
Don’t let the island-inspired name fool you, Rum Club is as prepared for fall as anyone else. Grab a Wired Pair and enjoy the fresh, crisp air on the cozy porch (720 SE Sandy Blvd.; 503-467-2469).

Wired Pair

  • Bonded Applejack
  • Averna
  • Italian Vermouth
  • Maple Syrup
  • Bitters


Stout Sangaree at Streetcar Bistro
Streetcar Bistro may be the new kid in town, but with a menu created with help from the very experienced Lance Mayhew, the bar is starting out with its best foot forward. The Stout Sangaree makes a great seasonal dessert for any beer lover (1101 NW Northrup St.; 503-227-2988).

Stout Sangaree

  •     Stout Beer
  •     Simple Syrup
  •     Topped with Fonseca Ruby Port
  •     Cinnamon
  •     Nutmeg
  •     Served in a Snifter


Belle Epoque at Teardrop Lounge
Just as fall is crisp and fresh it is also luxurious and deep; celebrate the richness of autumn with Teardrop’s new menu. The Belle Epoque capitalizes on notes of pear and vanilla from aged golden rum by combining it with the classic fall flavor of maple (1016 NW Everett St.; 503-445-8019).

Belle Epoque

  •     10 Cane Rum
  •     Blood orange shrub
  •     Lemon
  •     Maple


Apple Toddy at Market
In the Northwest, apples are the quintessential fall fruit and no cocktail menu reflects that quite like the one at Market. The Apple Toddy brings together brandy made from apples, spiced apple syrup and hot apple cider together for a great pick me up on a chilly Portland day (200 SW Market St.; 503-248-0004).

Apple Toddy

  •     Calvados
  •     Spiced Apple Syrup
  •     Hot Apple Cider
  •     Angostura Cream


New Money at Imperial
Brandon Wise, formerly of Beaker and Flask, is proving that Imperial’s hype may just be justified. With a smokiness from a house-infused hickory vermouth and a spicy chocolate finish that comes from combing Four Roses Bourbon with Nardini Amaro and bitters, New Money is all that is fall. The only thing that could make this cocktail more appealing is a warm fireplace (410 SW Broadway; 503-228-7222).

New Money

  •     Four Roses Bourbon
  •     Nardini Amaro
  •     House-infused Hickory Vermouth
  •     Bitters
