The mark of a good cocktail is whether it has its own cult following, and we have word that this Willamette Weak Sauce Martini by Hotel Monaco Portland has made the cut. Hotel Monaco Portland is a boutique luxury hotel in the heart of the city, only a short walk from Portland must-dos like Powell’s Books and a stroll along the Willamette River. If you’re lucky, your visit may fall during one of their in-house Voodoo Doughnuts tastings. This cocktail is served in the hotel’s Red Star Tavern and Roast House. Adjust the proportions in accordance with your taste preference whether that be sweet or sour, or with a little bit of spice.
1oz Dolin Blanc
1oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1oz Serrano/Orange Blossom Honey syrup
Shake all ingredients
Double strain into a cocktail glass.
Garnish with a half lemon wheel.
(This drink isn’t very spicy, but can be if you muddle a little sliced Serrano before you shake)
