Portland Hunt & Alpine Gets Our Vote

Portland Hunt & Alpine celebrated their first birthday earlier this month by throwing themselves one very fun cocktail party. Expertly crafted punch cocktails and Nordic inspired nibbles made up the special celebratory menu and we ended the evening with a champagne toast and platters of Holy Donuts. Now that's how you throw a birthday party!

We aren't the only fans of this cocktail hot spot, Bon Appètit magazine named Portland Hunt & Alpine one of the 5 Best New Cocktail Bars in America. That's very high praise for this newcomer and certainly well deserved. The lads behind the bar are expert mixologists and they're always very happy to help you navigate the menu of cocktail classics and creative libations. Just tell them what you like and they'll find you a perfect match. Their barrel aged Negroni is one of Mr. C&Gs favorites and I love the Gin Gin Mule.

Don & Little C&G give their vote
Food & Wine magazine has recently nominated Portland Hunt & Alpine for their People's Best New Bars: Northeast list and you can cast your vote at the Food & Wine website until Thursday, October 2nd. Click here now and go give them a vote, they're up against some tough big city competition, and it would be great to see Maine at the top of the list.

Even Little C&G gives Hunt & Alpine his two thumbs up and he's a tough and experienced critic. Check out my past post and see how this cocktail hot spot isn't off limits if your kids are tagging along. The bartenders make a mean Shirley Temple and be sure to order up some pretzels and popcorn (ask for it light on the green chile). Good luck Portland Hunt & Alpine! Vote here
