If you follow Pok Pok proprietor, Andy Ricker on Instagram (pawkhrua) you probably know his cats quite well by now. You’re probably double tapping photos of Jamuk with his tongue out (and other cat pics too) because you love the empire Ricker has built (OK, fine because his cats hug!).
If you love all things Pok Pok, you want to know about the Pok Pok Som Cocktail Competition happening around town Monday July 25th through Monday August 1st.
Pok Pok Som drinking vinegars have become nearly as paramount in Portland’s food and drink scene as Ricker’s famous chickens wings, and next week participating restaurants will be challenged to make the best cocktail with these sweet and tart fruit vinegars!
You can stop by participating bars any time during the week to “judge” the cocktails. Then, head to PokPokSom.com to vote for your favorite.
Bars were given the choice of these Pok Pok Som vinegars: Pineapple, Ginger, Apple, Pear, Chinese celery, Tamarind, Grapefruit, Strawberry, Satsuma, Cranberry, Black raspberry, and Buddha’s Hand.
Follow the hashtag #VoteSom to watch the friendly cocktail competition go down.
I leave you with this.
