Drinks for Welcoming Fall
I am co-owner, with Ben Hasty, of Thistle Pig Restaurant, located in the New England town of South Berwick, Maine. Before our recent opening of Thistle Pig, I spent six years at a New Hampshire hotel and restaurant, The Wentworth by the Sea, where I bartended and enjoyed creating cocktails for guests, sometimes deviating from the menu to satisfy their vision of a perfect cocktail for their special night out.
At Thistle Pig I enjoy serving our guests cocktails that are easily understood and could be easily replicated at home. We like to focus on the season and what our community is thirsty for at that time of year. When the weather starts to change, so do our cravings for different fruits, herbs and vegetables. These drinks, a cocktail and an alcohol-free mocktail, are great for the end of summer and beginning of our New England fall.
