Spints Alehouse hosted the 2nd Official Oregon Bartenders Guild Sunday Funday Event, and it was nothing short of just that. Jacob Grier and Chris Churilla led the way, mixing all sorts of soon to be named cocktails, to wow savvy mixologists from all over Portland. The talk of the night was a Ramos Gin Fizz. I believe the conversation started as, "Hey Jake, Make me a flip of some sort", as I kindly said, "how about a fizz, I really don't need a yolk." Hence the start of the shake off! Chris and Jacob, filled shakers and started timers; producing some of the most perfect and well thickened takes on a Ramos Gin Fizz ever. Many of the attending enthusiasts were buzzed into realizing that the combination of a good cocktail and Organic Nation Gin, yielded a new found love.
Cheers to the art of the Cocktail!
