POUR on Prince is often lauded for its inventive fine dining menu and exciting take on American bar food, but regulars of the local watering hole will tell you that POUR’s true appeal is its wonderful bar. POUR’s bartenders are welcoming, knowledgeable, and they mix a mean cocktail. For St. Patrick’s Day, BUZZ asked POUR bartender Lee Nobel to whip up something special, and what Noble came up with is special, indeed. He served BUZZ’s guest drinker Lynae Petersheim a Corpse Reviver, a drink usually served as a hangover cure the morning after a night on the town. While the Corpse Reviver is a known cocktail, Nobel gives his version a unique twist. “The drink is more popularly made with gin,” Nobel says of the Corpse Reviver, “but I make ours with white rye from Thistle Finch Distillery.”
POUR’s kitchen is known for using many locally produced ingredients and their bar is just as dedicated to using local products as well. Nobel’s decision to use Thistle Finch Rye in POUR’s Corpse Reviver isn’t only a delicious one, but one that’s also mindful of the community. “It’s always nice when we can use something local behind the bar,” Nobel says of the drink, “and the Thistle Finch Rye goes really well with this drink.” While there are many reasons to visit POUR on Prince this St. Patrick’s Day, or any night of the week, for that matter, the Corpse Reviver is an exciting new reason to belly up to the bar and stay awhile.
