Goldmine

Goldmine cocktail with vodka, Cocchi Americano, pineapple juice and lemon juice

As age and cocktail-testing takes its toll on our livers, we find ourselves drawn to lower-proof cocktails. It’s nice to indulge in the flavors of spirits and liqueurs without paying for it the next day.

The Goldmine, from Tom Lindstedt at Portland’s short-lived High Noon bar, is a perfect example of how a great drink doesn’t necessarily require a ton of booze.

Lindstedt uses Cocchi Americano, a white wine apéritif with a crisper, more bitter flavor profile than Lillet Blanc, another popular option. Both are lovely in this drink, but if you use Lillet you can expect it to be a little sweeter and a bit less flavorful.
