In every issue of Northwest Meetings + Events, we include a signature drink courtesy of a regional hotel or restaurant, but here’s one drink order that just can’t wait for the next issue! Now through December, if you order its seasonal Apple Cider Car at The Lobby Bar of Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle, you’ll contribute to the hotel’s Cocktail for a Cause program. The year-round program allows guests to give back to the global community by contributing approximately $4 of every cocktail purchased from its “Cocktail for a Cause” menu to One Days Wages, a Seattle-based nonprofit dedicated to eradicating global poverty and helping fight global hunger.

Here is the recipe for the cocktail:

Apple Cider Car (a seasonal take on the classic Sidecar): Ingredients include brandy, Contreau, apple cider and lemon. The cocktail is presented in a sugar-rimmed cocktail glass garnished with a dehydrated apple cinnamon chip featuring the Pan Pacific logo.

Additional cocktails on the “Cocktail for a Cause” menu are the Manila Mule and the Swedish Elyxir.

Cheers!

In the 1990s, Twin Peaks was one of the most talked-about television series. Set in the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington, many of the series’ exterior shots were filmed in the very real and very charming communities of Snoqualmie, North Bend and Fall City. As a toast to the upcoming rebirth of the series on Showtime, we suggest trying Salish Lodge & Spa’s Dale Cooper, named for the show’s character played by Washington native Kyle MacLachlan. 

 

Warm up on a chilly Northwest afternoon with this delicious concoction from Hotel Murano in Tacoma, Washington.

INGREDIENTS
—2 oz. house-infused chai vodka
—.5 oz. Cointreau
