A few years ago I came out with a list of what I thought the best cocktails in Portland, Oregon were. There were many people that disagreed with me, but with so many bars and restaurants in Portland, I knew I would never try them all. Over the last year or two, I have had the opportunity to try many more cocktails. Some were fantastic and some not so great. After too much consideration and lots of “research”, I have managed to compile another list. I decided not to include any of the drinks I had included before, despite the fact I still think they are all worth trying. You can go check out the original list of the 10 best cocktails in Portland and then read on to see all the new ones that rose the occasion.
