The winning cocktail for this years contest comes from Jacob Grier, lead bartender at Metrovino in Portland, Oregon for his original creation, the “Portland Rickey.” The Rickey dates back to the late 1800’s when George A. Williamson, a bartender at Shoomaker’s bar in Washington, D.C., would combine a base spirit with half a lime and sparkling mineral water for a Democratic lobbyist named Colonel Joseph Kyle Rickey.
