Alright Tumblr! Let’s do this right this time! These are my original Disney themed cocktails! All drinks were made up, and I did not copy any existing material. Expect a part 2 in the near future! Please feel free to check out & support my Bartending Facebook page at Cocktails by Cody. Thanks! Now let’s get drunk off our childhood! (I do not own Disney’s trademarked characters, blah blah blah don’t sue me please…..)

Make mine a Maleficent.

Four stars for Red Star

I’d been to the Red Star before for food, but honestly I hadn’t even registered that there was a wholly separate bar area. And it’s cute! And not crazy loud! These are all things of the good.

Also of the good: the signature Red Star cocktail. It’s basically a lemon drop with vanilla Stoli and raspberry liqueur. I say basically because those things together create this entirely new, entirely wonderful cocktail. NOM.

(I’d be remiss if I neglected to mention the french fries. They are delish. I don’t know what it is about Portland that makes restaurants offer so many different kinds of french fried goodness, but I am not complaining.)


Yum Factor: VERY.
Cute Factor: It’s a little more dark wood and grownups for my taste, but the flip side of that is that it was quiet enough to carry on an ACTUAL conversation, so: win.
Hangsies: None to speak of.

The Verdict: When I feel like a drink, this place will be at the top of my list.

"While you can make creative, delicious drinks that don’t have a drop of alcohol in them, alcohol gives drinks more than just a buzzy boost for the drinker; it helps capture and convey flavors in ways that water simply can’t. But as Kevin Sintumuang wrote in last weekend’s Wall Street Journal, there’s increasingly an option available for those who desire a cocktail but aren’t looking for the boozy blitz of a martini: low-alcohol cocktails."
