The Woodstock Maple Drop is a signature Vermont Gold Vodka cocktail. We love it for the way the cocktail so elegantly highlights the flavor profile of our handcrafted vodka. Plus it’s a versatile cocktail that we enjoy all year long. If you’re not sure about the “verjus,” read on for explanation and alternatives. The Basics: Simply Vermont Gold Vodka with sweetness from both the maple syrup and verjus, balanced with gentle acidity and citrusy fruit flavor from the verjus.

This signature No 14 Bourbon cocktail was suggested by our friends at Boston Harbor Hotel’s Rowes Wharf Bar. Next time your in Boston, stop by Rowes and order one.
With the Boston waterfront as its backdrop, Rowes Wharf Bar is a classy place to get a drink. Dark wood furnishings, blood red oriental carpeting and overstuffed leather armchairs, remind us of Bar Hemingway on Place Vendome in Paris, or Off the Record, a cozy upscale bar under the Hay Adams Hotel in Washington D.C.

Sugarwood Trees Knees is the Vermonter’s version of the classic Prohibition Era cocktail, Bees Knees. In our version, hold the honey and use pure Vermont maple instead. We’ve come a long way from bathtub gin, too. You’ll notice subtle hints of green tea and orange peel, brought out by a touch of pure maple and a refreshing splash of lemon.

If you’re in the mood for a slightly sunnier, a little less bitter version of a negroni, this is for you. Coppers Sugarwood Gin is just on the sweeter side with amped up botanical notes that take the edge off the typical bitterness in a negroni.
Our favorite gin, plus shrub, lemonade and soda water.
This is probably Don’s favorite craft cocktail to make. (You should ask him!) The use of cocktail shrub introduces a whole new flavor profile to an otherwise ordinary spritzer. We prefer Coppers American Gin, but if you wanted a slightly sweeter cocktail, you could try this with Coppers Sugarwood Gin. Either way, this might just be your new fave.
