Weekend Cocktail Recipe: Reverse Birthday

We are basking in some late summer sun here in Portland, so we thought we'd share a recipe featuring one of our favorite ingredients of the season: Starvation Alley Cranberry Juice.

Starvation Alley is Washington's FIRST organic cranberry farm located on the Long Beach Peninsula. In addition to producing gorgeous plump cranberries, they also make the most delicious mouth-puckering cold-pressed juice. It's far from your average cranberry juice—there's no sugar added, so it packs a healthy punch—and happens to be an excellent cocktail ingredient.

This cocktail was created by our co-founder Daniel Osborne, who was inspired by the Americano when dreaming up his Oregon-centric twist.
