Guess What Oregon's Best Coctail Contains?

Travel Oregon, the state tourism commission, held a contest to create the "unofficial official Oregon cocktail." These kinds of contests are useful for highlighting local products and trends, and with the amazing growth of micro-distilleries in recent years, it's a good way to bring some attention to the industry. But as a testament to how dominant beer is in in the Oregon imagination, the contest winner, Cheryl Meloy's "Hike, Fish, and Go Camping Punch," employs two bottles of Terminal Gravity IPA.
  • 5 ounces Pendleton Whisky
  • 4 ounces frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 4 ounces limeade concentrate
  • 4 ounces huckleberry syrup
  • mint sprigs
  • 2 bottles Terminal Gravity IPA
I suspect Terminal Gravity isn't the only brewery you could use--any version with vivid hopping would probably make the grade--but I'll let others run the experiments.

    Downtown Portland?

    I would say a combination of PBR, Boone's Farm Strawberry and some refuse recycled Elephant Ears from the Saturday Market...with an essence of Sandlewood?
