Cocktails & Comfort Foods

Comfort Cocktails #1

Spring is a funny thing in the Great Northwest. Some days are cloudless, bug-less, mid-70’s lay-in-the-grass kind of days. Other days are cliched with a grey pillow of clouds offering slight mists of rain to hail the size of a Buffalo Nickel. This week in our hometown we’re experiencing the latter, which allows for a wide variety of Comfort Foods.

Comfort Food comes in many forms, from tomato soup with a side of grilled cheese sandwich to Grandma’s famous meatloaf. Today it’s Thai noodle soup. Last week Pok Pok’s owner Andy Ricker opened a fantastic spot called Sen Yai, a Thai Noodle House on SE Division in Portland, OR. To start the lunch out right they have a long-standing Pok Pok family Aviation Gin cocktail called Deviation, a play on the namesake cocktail of our Aviation Gin. The balance of Aviation Gin, lemon juice, and cherry liqueur & juice in the cocktail was excellent with the spicy Mama Naam, a Northern Thai street food staple.

      Hi TS,

      We don’t have the exact recipe for the cocktail but you can always head into the restaurant and try and get them to share. Are you local to Portland?
