This Week’s Featured Cocktail: The Old Vermont

Forrest Miller – Muze Staff Writer

This week’s featured drink, the Old Vermont, takes inspiration from New England.  Around this time of year New England’s unparalleled foliage is breaking across the Green Mountains and New Yorkers are clogging up the dirt roads as they take pictures of trees on their photo safaris.  Vermont is famous for it’s foliage.  It’s also famous for covered bridges, Ben and Jerry’s, Champ (the Lake Champlain version of the Lock Ness Monster), the band Phish, the Morgan horse, and the Vermont Teddy Bear factory.  But the one thing that Vermont is famous for, above anything else, is the maple syrup.  So, for those of us who are in a Vermont state of mind but, perhaps, cannot enjoy the foliage this year and would still like a taste of Vermont, this is the drink for you.

The Old Vermont


  • 1 ½ oz. gin
  • ¼ oz. lemon juice
  • ¼ oz. orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters


Shake with ice and strain into a small cocktail glass
