The leaves of autumn are long gone, the holiday bustle is over and all we are left with is the bitter cold of a Maine winter; well, at least for a few more months. When the weather becomes almost a little too unbearable, there is only so much we can do: turn our collar to the wind, find a friendly place to settle in, and enjoy a cocktail. Whether you are a lone ranger, or a romantic looking for Valentine’s Day specials, we think we have just the place for you.
Winter Cocktails to Help Survive the Cold
Nestled in the heart of Camden harbor is a sweater weather inducing, idyllic spot with oversized couches, a crackling fireplace, and, yes, seasonal designer cocktails to warm the body and spirit. Maine Eater said this about the local bar and its resident mixologist:
Mac McGaw embraces the role of sharply dressed, mustachioed mixologist behind the bar at upscale Camden Harbor Inn. He doesn’t shy away from a challenging cocktail, like a fall-inspired Mainehattan with local rye whiskey, a lavender syrup-infused ice sphere, and wood chips smoked for each glass.
While the tastes, methods, and presentation are undeniably unique, space its self is something quite spectacular. The inviting atmosphere effortlessly threads modernity into historical New England architecture. The longing for the past with the excitement of the now makes for the perfect romantic setting for a winter evening.
