Now that sunshine has finally arrived, it's time to shelve the "seasonal depression" drinking excuse for the "seasonal celebration" line of reasoning. And with that — and the OLCC's recent pro-patio ruling — in mind, consider this for today's Friday Open Thread: What's are Portland's best warm-weather cocktails? Whether it's a frozen margarita, a paper-umbrella-ed tropical cocktail, or a refreshing spritzer of some sort, give the your favorite warm-weather drinking hole — and most importantly, your cocktail of choice — a shout in the comments. (It goes without saying that bonus points go to spots with sun-dappled drinking patios.)
As per usual, we'll round up your suggestions next week for a crowdsourced map of Portland's best summer drinks.
