You know that giddy feeling when you make a restaurant/bar discovery that's so good you just about bust a gasket dying to tell everyone about it? I found one and it's called Quaintrelle (n.) a woman who emphasizes a life of passion, expressed through personal style, leisurely pastimes, charm, and cultivation of life's pleasures #lifegoals. These well-crafted cocktails had me grinning like an idiot and I'm going to need to go back and try the rest. The menu is spectacular and seasonal so I'm just going to have to go back... a lot.
1 - Old Soul: tequila, mezcal, vecchio del capo, ancho reyes, pineapple gomme, lime, sea salt.
2 - Midnight Special: bourbon, sherry, gran classico, lemon oil, egg white.
Check out more enthusiastic wordage on the blog, because I'm only getting started with this place. The FOOD was un. real. If you live in Portland, go here immediately. If you come to Portland I'm going to insist you go here. Put down the Voodoo Donuts*, people! This is what the PDX is all about.
*OK, you can have those on the plane ride home.
