Explorations in Mixology Cocktails Drinking

Portland Bar Review: Kask

Shrub cocktail at KaskIt’s easy to think of Kask as a drinker’s waiting room for Grüner or even the Multnomah Whiskey Library, but if you make that mistake you are likely to skip the other places completely and just hang out here for the evening. With a fantastic selection of signature cocktails and house-made mixers, there’s something for everyone. The menu includes a daily punch special (possibly be the best cocktail value downtown) alongside a half-dozen seasonal recipes that punctuate a very complete cocktail list of recurring classics and originals. Everything is nicely laid out by spirit category. We love how each category is further divided into “Shaken” and “Stirred” sections giving clues to the type of drinks you might expect (shaken cocktails often contain citrus or other cloudy ingredients, while stirred drinks are always spirit driven). The cozy space also serves small bites to keep you satiated enough to order the next round. We love the decor which has a rustic industrial feel combining exposed brick, natural wood bar and table tops and steel.
