The making of a new cocktail. Photo GS
Ever wondered how new cocktails are created? One of Marjorie’s newest cocktails, 10 Degrees, was created spontaneously one evening at the Marjorie bar. Intent on using Oola’s Cask Aged Gin and Sidetrack’s new Lemon Verbena Liqueur, the main ingredients were established, but there was just a little something missing.

KT, owner of the 10 degrees, an unusual and intimate venue on 14th and Union, suggested using Zirbenz Stone Pine Liqueur. Who knew? It gave the drink the perfect balance.
What better way to show gratitude for the contribution than to name the drink with a nod to our neighbor, and proprietress of a great space, 10 degrees. Perhaps your next event will be there!

When the weather cools, the days grow shorter and the summer produce disappears, it is time to cozy up to the warm environment of Marjorie! While the bounty of the Northwest has been wholeheartedly enjoyed all summer, there is no denying, the Chefs have been anticipating the change of season with much joy. There are many things to be grateful for…Mushrooms, Squash, Pumpkin, Persimmons, Quince…

The Chanterelle Sautee is one of those menu items that creates a “buzz”. Were it just for the amazing local treasured Chanterelles, it would be a delightful experience. Add to this a Gruyere Croquette, Local Huckleberry Sauce and Pickled Mustard Seed. Slightly addictive. Definitely awesome.

It is truly amazing to see what artistic creations are made by the crew at Marjorie. It is a small kitchen, staffed with a culinary team that is driven by passion and a true love of food.
