Raise a Glass

Raise a glass to Maine's environment! While we won't gather in-person this year, we can still enjoy a cocktail together virtually as we celebrate the Maine we love. See below for two delicious options:

Lavender's Green

Lavender's Green

  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz elderflower liqueur (e.g. St. Germain or St. Elder)
  • .5 oz lemon juice
  • 2 sprigs lavender
  • seltzer to top

Combine gin, elderflower, lemon juice, and lavender in shaker with ice; shake determinedly for 20 seconds or so. Strain into chilled cocktail glass, top with seltzer or club soda. Garnish with more lavender.

Rosemary Maple Sour

Rosemary Maple Sour

  • 1.5 oz bourbon
  • .75 oz lemon juice
  • .5 oz maple syrup (less if you like it *very* sour)
  • 1 sprig rosemary

Crush the rosemary in your hand, and drop it in a shaker with all other ingredients and ice. Shake with conviction until you remember the chill in the evening air during sugaring season, then strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice.
