After Metrovino in Portland, we were walking back to our hotel and Andrea wanted to catch a nightcap at Teardrop. She was a little envious that I had visited there without her on a night she wanted to catch up on sleep, so I decided to break my visit-things-once motif. I requested from bartender Art the Moment in the Sun which was subtitled, "to fend off the shortening days; bold, bright, and sing-songy." It seemed like a perfect autumn cocktail, and it reminded me of the Prospector at Kask but with mezcal instead of Batavia Arrack (as well as no sparkling wine).
