Highlights of Portland Cocktail Week included Pernod-Ricard's Welcome to Cocktail Week party, which was attended by the biggest names in the spirits business and was an absolute blast.

Here are a few of drinks I enjoyed most during Portland Cocktail Week, plus a few shots of Portland's (and the country's) top bartenders at work.
