Tropical era

Portugal Bend Distilling, located at 300 The Promenade in downtown, makes us all feel like Tiki Time with our new tropical food and drink menu. One of the highlights is the POG Selzer, a homemade Selzer that offers the essence of passion fruit, oranges and guava for $ 10.

This is an adult way to remind you of the milk cap games that were popular in the 1990s. At that time, early teens were collecting and replacing cardboard tops from beverage containers, especially those containing POG. It was like a marble game where the winner brought back his opponent’s caps.

If you’re hungry when you think of your childhood playing “Slammer and POG,” try Lillicoy Pulled Pork Sundi, Sticky Ribs, Coconut Curry Salmon, and Jerk Chicken.

Other Tiki-style drinks added to the menu include lava lamps, jungle boogie, and hey! Bie Bie, and soon, a new aged rum will be launched to add even more favor to these cocktails.

Check out the boats hanging overhead while you are there.

“The moonlighter boat is a relic of the Portuguese bend,” says the staff. “This classic Chris Craft boat has been hand-painted to bring a part of history to our guests. It was a small run from Deadman’s Cove and Catalina Island while banned on Long Beach. Represents a ship. “
