The Rugged Maine Coastal Cocktail

Aaron McHugh

After returning from a trip to Maine, I’m dreaming of wild escapes (even if in my mind) back to that rugged landscape. I came across this cocktail recipe in Huckberry’s catalog for gear and inspiration. Huckberry claims this combo of Canadian whiskey, maple syrup and Lemon will fend off old-man winter’s bite. Here’s what they say,

Mix it up:

  • 2 oz Canadian Whiskey
  • 1/2 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 oz Maple Syrup
  • Liberal dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • A bit of Soda water as you serve
  • Slice of Lemon
  • Mint garnish

Shaken, not stirred and strained over ice.

One of Maine’s 10 Best Lighthouse list and you better bring a blanket and a strong cocktail or thermos of hot coffee to fight the coastal temps.
