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.
11 More Drinks in Portland You’ve Got to Try!
The Freshman Fifteen cocktail at Kask is easily my favorite cocktail in town. It’s pretty and it’s just good. Kask is a tiny little cocktail bar with some interesting options. Skip the food here and go for drinks only.

2. East Burn
The Prickly Pear Margarita at Eastburn is so tasty. It is the best prickly pear margarita I have found in Portland so far. I love sitting on the swings on their patio.

3. Al’s Den
The Old Fashion at Al’s Den. I was turned on to this while out on a Portland Walking Tour. I had my doubts, but our guide was right. They make the best Old Fashion in Portland, Oregon.

4. River Pig Saloon
The daily punch at River Pig Saloon is always good it seems and it is cheap, plus it’s the perfect place to watch the Cowboys game. If you like fried food, then you will want to try something!
529 NW 13th Avenue
The Gimlet at Park Kitchen makes worth venturing over here more than worth it. Warning: it is on the strong side.
422 NW 8th Ave
Portland, OR 97209
Quaintrelle in North Portland on Mississippi Avenue has the “Path to Fortitude” made with Dystopia vodka, and some ingredients I have never heard of like priorat natur vermut, china china amer, lemon, and pink peppercorn. It is as good as it looks. Recently I visited again and they’ve got a whole new cocktail menu. Look how pretty they are!

Hey Love is a great bar in Portland with all kinds of creative cocktails. There isn’t a certain one that stands out to me, but I can pretty much guarantee that you will find one you love.
