The New Cocktailians

 

Casey SheltonCasey Shelton – Manager
In the words of Jack Torrance, "The best goddamn bartender from Timbuktu to Portland, Maine or Portland, Oregon for that matter."

Joy AlbertelliMary Dale – Cocktail Waitress & Bartender
Our newest addition. She's like the girl next door, only next door they drink whiskey and talk smack. Keep an eye on her, she could be trouble.

 

Guerin BellGuerin Bell - Bartender
He looks innocent, but he's not. He's like a secret weapon, except that weapon is a spork. Give him a hard time, he enjoys it.

 

Guerin BellJack McDowell - Host

Jack's a lot like Patrick Swayze. Not sure if it's Roadhouse Swayze, Outsiders Swayze or Point Break. But he's pretty Swayze.

 

Casey SheltonChris Shinn- Bartender
Accident prone is an understatement, Chris hurts himself getting up in the morning. Ask him about the Jeffrey and why he's not allowed to have one anymore.

Brandi Gaspard - Cocktail Waitress & Bartender

Ms. Brandi is no longer the FNG. She still likes bourbon and bearded men, in any order. She makes a killer drink.

Duane "Dee" Daly

Quinton Burke - Bartender

He's actually from South Africa, in case you're trying to figure out that ridiculous accent.

Shmitty - Host & Barback

Part 1840's gold prospector, Shmitty is a jack of all trades and master of some. We're just not sure what they are.

An idea of the madness we create:

 

Senor Extravagante
A play on the Negroni with Correlejo reposado tequila and Tiki Bitters. Don't know what that means? That's ok. We still like you.

Pegu Club
A timeless clasic. Start with fresh lime, orange bitters, Plymouth Gin and a dash of cointreau. Sublime.

The Shelton
Named after an old Texas hounddog, this summer cocktail is a surefire winner. Tequila, ruby red grapefruit, bitters and King's Ginger. Fantastic!

Le Pomme et Le Poire

The most amazing sparkling cocktail you'll ever have. Pear preserves, Sapphire gin, lemon, cointreau and a splash of Asti.

 

 

 

Red Dawn
Fresh seasonal berries, Russian Standard vodka, ginger liqueur and ginger beer. Thirsty yet?

Raspberry Lagerita
Can't decide between a beer or a cocktail? Have both in the same glass! Crazy, you say? Delicious we say!

Orange Jalapeno Margarita
We didn't invent the jalapeno regardless of what you've heard. We just make it better by adding really great tequila, fresh sour and cointreau.

We specialize in all of the classics, from an algonquin to a zombie. We hand stir our martinis, make our own syrups and sours and will happily create a custom drink just for you. We make real drinks for people who enjoy the art of drinking. Watch the magic and join in. You'll never be disappointed.

Of course, if you just want a beer, that's cool! We have something for everyone....
