Portland, Oregon's own Jordan Hughes is a must follow. His content is light, funny and charismatic, and his photography is exceptional—truly second to none. He is a pro at engaging with followers, and he's one of those dudes you'd just love to hang out with and have a drink.
How do you describe your IG feed?
I'd say a spirited mix of cocktail recipes, techniques and education, with a shot of photography inspiration.
Go-to drink on a Friday night?
I've been on a cognac-kick recently, so my current go-to is a Sidecar.
Bar tool you can't live without?
If I'm somewhere without many bar tools, I can make-due pretty easily but I always want to have a good jigger so I can make precise and accurate measurements.
Secret go-to ingredient?
It's not a secret anymore, but this Pineapple Demerara syrup has been a fav for a while.
What's your favorite cocktail platform to riff on?
I feel like I'm always riffing on Old Fashioneds or Negronis—maybe because they're so easy, but they're also so good.
