Metrovino Aquavit Week, December 11-15

Metrovino Aquavit Week, December 11-15

Don't despair as the weather grows colder and the sun retreats, instead, join Metrovino bartender (and Drink Portland writer) Jacob Grier for lessons on how people in much colder lands cope with winter — by drinking aquavit! Stop by the Pearl District bar from Tuesday–Saturday, December 11–15, to try specially crafted cocktails that translate this underappreciated spirit in an accessable yet inventive way.

In addition to shaking up drinks with traditional Norwegian and new American aquavits, Grier will also unveil New Nordic Porter, a collaboration beer from Breakside Brewery created specifically to compliment aquavit, with a strong caraway flavor tempered with plum, dill flower and fennel pollen. Check out the full cocktail list below.
