Recipes from Wildwood Bartender Ryan Csanky

Ryan Csanky has been with Wildwood Restaurant and Bar in Northwest Portland for nine years. In keeping with his passion for local food and libations,  Csanky released Aria Portland Dry Gin last year. As this issue’s featured bartender, he created Porch Swing exclusively for 1859.

Porch Swing

What:

1 1/2 Aria Portland Dry Gin

1 oz Brandy Peak Blackberry Liqueur

3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice

1/2 oz simple syrup

2 sprigs mint

Soda

How:

In a pint glass add one sprig of mint. Fill with ice and muddle until mint is broken up. Add remaining ingredients, except the blackberry liqueur, and stir. Pour into tall, slender Collins style glass. Top with a splash of soda, leaving about 1/2 inch from the top. Float the Blackberry liqueur over the top so that it slowly sinks to the bottom of the glass. Garnish with the other sprig of mint.
