The Story Behind The Brunch With the Parents
Grand Army Tavern is a fantastic neighborhood bar in northeast Portland, Ore. Run by a husband-and-wife team, this stylish, laid-back spot emphasizes sustainability and seasonal ingredients.
Anna Maceda runs the beverage program, developing various cocktails with fresh-squeezed juices and house-made syrups. The menu even includes a pretty substantial “no-proof” section for those who still want a complex beverage without the buzz.
This cocktail features both rosé wine and a splash of rum, but it is low-proof enough to be perfect for weekend brunch or day drinking. I personally don’t like having to choose between ordering rosé or a cocktail — with this drink you can have both!
