The Stumptown Fizz: The perfect cocktail to celebrate the flavors of spring #Recipes#alcohol#beverages#spring May 25 2015 | Guest post by Mint & Mirth Photo by Hazelwood Photography As Portland melts into early summer, we’ve been looking for any excuse to celebrate the flavors of spring. This led to a small get together at home with some of our close friends, where we spent a delicious afternoon sipping cocktails. We love to dream up original cocktails with locally-made spirits, seasonal garnishes, and homemade syrups. We would love to share this recipe with you so you can have a spring gathering of your own. The drink is fun to make, and substitutions are easy — if you can’t get Oregon-made spirits, check out your local distilleries and use some of their products instead! The Stumptown Fizz features ultra-smooth Aria Portland Dry Gin, simple syrup made from fresh rose petals, elderflower liqueur, and a bit of citrus. 2 oz. Aria Portland Dry Gin 3/4 oz. St. Germain 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice 3/4 oz. rose simple syrup 2 dashes Hella Bitters (Citrus) 1 egg white Enjoy this sipper on your front porch as spring fades, and get ready for the best summer ever!
