Stumptown Express

“The Stumptown Express is a celebration of the renowned coffee culture in Portland, Oregon. We feature Stumptown coffee roasters in Departure restaurant and this cocktail is a natural extension of our passion for artisan coffee as well as bourbon. The Stumptown Express also highlights Departure’s Asian influence through the incorporation of Canton ginger liqueur, bridging the spice from the high rye content of Four Roses Bourbon, the sweetness of the honey, and the bitterness of the coffee in perfect harmony. I’ve always been a fan of Four Roses and find it mixes well with bitter and spicy ingredients, and this cocktail is no exception.” – Brandon Wise, corporate director of Beverage for Sage Restaurant Group.
