Portable potables from The Joinery & New Deal

Here at The Joinery, we appreciate kindred spirits — well, spirits of most any kind, really — but especially those of New Deal Distillery, the small-batch distillery in southeast Portland that’s been making award-winning liquors and liqueurs since 2004. Their philosophy of true craftsmanship, environmental stewardship and giving back to their community meshes (or is that mashes?) nicely with our own. New Deal has graciously supported us in recent events like our celebration for the re-opening of our downtown showroom in June.

So we’re excited to be able to turn the tables and support New Deal in our own inimitable fashion: our recently introduced Milo Bar Cart is a most elegant conveyance for any and all of their exceptional spirits. Short of the back seat of a Rolls Royce Phantom, no liquor cabinet could ask for a smoother or more refined ride.

We rolled our new Milo Bar Cart into service just in time to serve New Deal cocktails during the Grand Re-Opening of our downtown Portland showroom at 922 S.W. Yamhill in June.

Just to whet your whistle, here’s a recipe — courtesy of New Deal — for concocting your own premium bar cart fuel. (Go to http://www.newdealdistillery.com/category/recipes/ to find a cornucopia of many more amazing mixology ideas.)


This one’s called “The Royal Wedding”:

1.5 oz New Deal Gin 33

0.5 oz apple juice

0.5 oz fresh squeezed orange juice

0.25 oz New Deal Ginger Liqueur

Muddle 3-4 large mint leaves

Shake with ice. 

Strain and serve on ice in a rocks glass.

Garnish with a mint sprig or strip of candied ginger.

The Milo Bar Cart is available in a variety of wood species and nickel or brass accents. It may be the only vehicle you can buy that’s warranted for a lifetime.

Sure, fine food and good snacks are important to any party. But to set the perfect mood, we recommend that you stock up on New Deal to get your party really rolling. Cheers!
