hollywood tavern cocktail

Cocktail: Woodinville Sunrise

Featured Ingredient: Tequila

Dreaming of warmer weather or an uninfected beach in Mexico? Us too. Fantasize via this sunny, four-ingredient tequila cocktail from The Hollywood Tavern in Woodinville, Washington.

dash & willow

Cocktail: Dash & Willow

Featured Ingredient: Barrel-aged gin

Hats off to the Queen, this cocktail is more an ode to her dogs than the British royal herself. Barrel-aged gin, French vermouth Dubonnet, lemon and a house-made clove-peppercorn syrup create this savory sip.

shaken and firred

Cocktail: Shaken & Firred

Featured Ingredient: Vodka

Just three simple components to a Northwestern twist on a classic vodka martini: aforementioned vodka from Clear Creek Distillery, plus their Douglas fir brandy and dry Oregon vermouth.  


Cocktail: The Rusty Iron

Featured Ingredient: Rye Whiskey

Providing warmth, inside and out, this smoky, whiskey-forward sip also takes a splash of pommeau and is best enjoyed by a roaring fire. Grab a big ice cube and drop her in – you might be back for seconds.

the gerald cocktail

Cocktail: All the Wilde Things

Featured Ingredient: Aquavit

Get wild(e) at home with this libation from the Gerald in Seattle. Aquavit mixes with vermouth and fernet for a springy sip that captures “the whimsical, complex, childlike storytelling of Oscar Wilde,” says bar manager Katie Frazier.
