Recently, I was dining at Acadia restaurant in Portland, Oregon and was surprised by this fantastic cocktail developed by reknowned mixologist Jabriel Donohue. Before coming to Portland, Jabriel honed his craft in the bucolic fishing town of Bellingham Washington. With cocktail creations like this, Jabriel is quickly making his mark as one of the preeminent mixologists in the Pacific Northwest. Rye whiskey, Cherry Heering, Benedictine and Fernet Branca make this a complex, layered cocktail, a perfect foil for the spicy Cajun cuisine Acadia is known for.
