Signature Drink: Dale Cooper

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.
