North Portland Bartenders Create Super Bowl Team Cocktails

Saturday, January 31, 2015

 

The Sea Genie

The Patriot

Believe it or not, there are better ways to celebrate our unofficial national football holiday than sitting on your butt in front of your television.

If you want to step out of the macro, domestic routine that has set a precedent for super bowl parties, Portland bartenders Aaron and Jonathan—from North Portland's Sidecar 11 on North Mississippi Avenue—have created two new cocktails to take you in the right direction.  

Both martinis, one for Seahawks fans, and the other for Patriots fans, not only look the part; they taste great as well.  

The Sea Genie

Muddle basil and honey simple syrup
Add 1 & 1/2 oz. 5 wives vodka 
Splash of lime juice
Splash of lemon juice 
Float of Genepy des Alpes 
Shaken and poured into a martini glass.

The Patriot

1/2 oz. sinful vodka 5 wives
1/2 oz. Cappelletti
Splash of egg white
Splash of cranberry juice
Splash of lemon juice.
Shaken and poured into a martini glass.
Then slowly pour crème’ de violet into the base of the martini glass letting it sink to the bottom. 

Sidecar 11 is located at 3955 North Mississippi Ave., (503) 208-3798 and yes the game will be on.

There is certainly an argument for staying in to watch the game this Sunday. If you're out and about though, this short list will guide you through some of the better bars for watching the Super Bowl in Portland. Every place on this list will probably be very busy. If you are looking for a quiet spot, a hotel bar out by the airport might be the perfect thing.

Yur's Bar & Grill

Yur's is a spacious neighborhood bar for the Northwest Portland crowd. Just a few blocks from the shopping strips of Northwest 21st and Northwest 23rd Avenues, Yur’s Tavern may be in the land of beautiful people, but don’t let that fool you. Yur’s is what keeps that neighborhood “real” and with plenty of space, big screen TVs and cheap booze it will certainly be keeping it that. 

Yur's Bar & Grill is located at 717 NW 16th Ave.

The Know

This is a small bar with only two TVs. I included it on the list for the Patriot fans. If this is your first winter here in Portland and you’re looking to not be alienated by the twelfth man, this might be a good place for you. You may even make some friends, if you’re cool enough. Just don’t take anyone home with you.  

The Know is located at 2026 NE Alberta St.

Blitz

There is a Blitz on Hawthorne Street, but if you’re going to Hawthorne, check out number 5 on this list- there is no substitute. Blitz in the Pearl is a run of the mill Sports bar - cheap food and drinks (especially for the Pearl), a TV in every direction and plenty of other fans.   

Blitz Pearl is located at 110 NW 10th Ave.

Katie O' Brien's

The Cadillac of Sport’s bars. If you can get there early enough to grab a swivel chair at the bar, you’re in luck. If not, there is plenty of other- less luxurious- seating as well as a pool table and heated patio for halftime. 

Katie O' Brien's is located at 2809 NE Sandy Blvd.

Claudia's

If Katie O’Brien’s is the Cadillac of Sports Bars, Claudia’s is the Bentley.

Claudia's is located at 3006 SE Hawthorne Blvd.

Jolly Roger

Jolly Roger is an old neighborhood bar. It’s very cheap. There are plenty of seats and TVs. Yeah. 

Jolly Roger has two locations at 1340 SE 12th Ave., and 5627 SW Kelly Ave.

George's Corner Tavern

Feeling bad about life? Come to George’s Corner Tavern. If it doesn’t renew your faith in humanity, it will at least renew faith in yourself.

George's Corner Tavern is located at 5501 N Interstate Ave.

52nd Avenue Sports Bar

With very cheap food and draft specials, a friendly bartender and a lot of TVs, this cozy bar will be packed to the brim on Sunday.

Rialto Room

Sick of seeing beards and flannel? Wanna see some leather jackets and hair gel? Rialto Room is, first and foremost, a pool hall. They also have an off-track betting kiosk next door. I’m sure if you wanted to make the game a little more interesting, you could meet some obliging folks. Even if you’re not betting, there are plenty of TVs and it’s a good place to watch the game if you’re not adverse to the smell of Axe.   

Rialto Room is located at 529 SW 4th Ave.

Belmont Inn

Big screen TVs, a good selection of beer and pool tables. Ask the bartender to make you a mojito. There are plenty of other bars in the vicinity if you get bored.

The Belmont Inn is located at 3357 SE Belmont Ave.
