happy national bourbon day!
To celebrate Marriott Hotels' bourbon program, properties throughout the country hosted "Bourbon Battles" where Marriott and local bartenders raced against the clock to serve handcrafted bourbon cocktails. At the Portland event, I had a blast sipping on classic bourbon cocktails such as the Manhattan and the Old Fashioned, snacking on delicious bites from The Marriott, and watching the competition unfold. The Portland Marriott Waterfront is beautifully redone and has a killer bourbon program to boot. I'd definitely recommend checking it out for yourself.
Miss the competition? Recipe for the winning drink below:
2 Jack Single Single
1 Apricot Spiced Shrub
.75 Egg White
.5 Marionberry Liqueur
Creativity is 80% bourbon and 20% ice.

Thank you Marriott Hotels for the event media pass, the opportunity to make my Kentucky ancestors proud, and great bourbon.
As always, dear readers, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
