These cocktails are so good - we posted them again. Now you have the whole month of December to experiment with Vermont spirits to find the perfect cocktails for your holiday party. Here's Butternut Mountain Farm's Pinterest Board of maple-inspired cocktails. This covers the territory from Winter Daiquiris to a classic Bourbon Maple Cider to a not-so-classic Maple Bacon Pisco Sour (admittedly, Vermont has no pisco makers but most of the cocktail basics can be covered by our fine line up of distillers).
Butternut Mountain Farm isn’t the only Vermont food producers with some ideas for your winter time bar needs. Here are some other recipes for achieving winter warmth via a cocktail shaker:
- Fat Toad Farm Caramel Egg Nog (egg nog is not just for Christmas, it’s for any time you want something delicious).
- Vermont Ice Apple Creme Flip from Boyden Valley Winery & Spirits
- White Vermonter from SILO Distillery (you can learn more about their cacao vodka from this post by DigInVT partner the Vermont Fresh Network)
- Gimme S’More from Stonecutter Spirits (why do we not all have toasted marshmallow syrup on hand already? Now we can)
- Appalachian Winter from Vermont Spirits pro tip, use Vermont Cranberry Co. cranberries
- The Snowbird from Woodchuck Cider
- Sweet Heatfrom WhistlePig Whiskey (why you would mix WhistlePig with anything other than an ice cube is a mystery to those of us without degrees in mixology, but we’ll trust the experts)
- The Sled Dog from Saxtons River Distillery
- Hot Tommy from Caledonia Spirits. Hot Tom Cat? Yes. Please.
