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!

Ingredients In The Brunch With the Parents:

  • 1/2 ounce Appleton rum
  • 3/4 ounce rosehip simple syrup (recipe follows)
  • 1/4 ounce strawberry puree
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 3 drops rosewater
  • 4 ounces rosé wine
  • Seltzer to top

  1. Combine all ingredients except rosé and seltzer in a shaker with ice. Shake to combine.
  2. Double strain over fresh ice in a wine glass.
