Fill your favorite mug (we prefer our official Liquid Riot camping mug) with ice. Add vodka, cranberry juice, and lime juice, then ginger beer; stir to mix. Garnish with lime wedge.

Apple Cider Martini

  • 2 oz apple cider
  • 1.5 oz Well… Vodka
  • .5 oz Cointreau or Triple Sec
  • .5 oz lemon juice
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup (or simple syrup)
  • pinch cinnamon

Fall Cocktails featuring: Old Port Bourbon

Maine Maple Old Fashioned

Add maple syrup and bitters to a rocks glass. Fill the glass with ice, and stir to combine. Add Old Port Bourbon and stir for about 30 seconds to chill and dilute.

Classic Whiskey Cider

  • 2 oz Old Port Bourbon
  • 1 oz apple cider
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • .5 oz lemon juice
  • 1 dash orange bitters
  • For the garnish: Apple slices, sprig of thyme

Combine the bourbon, cider, sweet vermouth and lemon juice in mixing glass and stir with ice. Strain it into cocktail glass. Add a dash of orange bitters and garnish with apple slices (if desired, spritz them with a little lemon juice to prevent browning).

Fall Cocktails featuring: Rum Riot Rum

Autumn Rum Old Fashioned

  • 2 oz  Rum Riot Rum
  • 1 barspoon apple cider syrup*
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters

Add Rum Riot Rum, apple cider syrup and Angostura bitters into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled. Strain into an Old Fashioned glass. Express the oil of an orange twist over the drink, then drop the twist into the drink.

*Apple cider syrup: In a small saucepan set over medium heat, combine 1 cup apple cider and 2 cups brown sugar, stirring constantly to emulsify the sugar. Once the liquid reaches a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, and continue to stir occasionally until the liquid reduces enough to coat the back of a spoon. Add a pinch of salt, stir, then remove the syrup from the heat, and allow to cool. Transfer the syrup to a Mason jar, and store for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Maple Leaf

  • 2 oz Rum Riot Rum
  • .5 oz Maple Syrup
  • 4 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 dashes Apple Bitters
  • Cinnamon, Ground

Stir ingredients over ice and pour in a rocks glass over a large ice cube. Scrape fresh cinnamon on top as garnish.

Fall cocktails featuring: Old Port Single Malt

Spiked Apple Cider

  • ½ teaspoon cloves
  • 3 star anise
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 8 cups apple cider
  • 1 cup Old Port Single Malt
  • For the garnish: star anise, cinnamon stick, orange slice

Heat spices over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fragrant. Turn the heat to low and pour in the apple cider and bring to below a simmer, just barely bubbling. Set a timer for 30 minutes and reduce to low heat (don’t let it simmer). Skim off any particulate that rises to the top of the pot using a fine mesh sieve or strainer. Pour in the Single Malt. Ladle into 8 mugs. If desired, garnish with star anise, cinnamon stick, or an orange slice.

Whiskey & Bubbles

Add Old Port Single malt and champagne to a champagne flute and then drop in bitters and a handful of cranberries.
