Sebago Lake Distillery is serving up delicious fall cocktail recipes that perfectly complement the distillery’s three distinct, handcrafted 100% pot still rum brands. Each recipe was created to highlight the nuances of the rums and enhance the season’s cool autumn evenings and welcoming get together whether at home or out at a favorite bar or restaurant.
Vigorous Pink Daiquiri:
3 oz. Sebago Lake Distillery’s Original Rum
Juice of 1 lime (about 1 oz.)
0.5 oz. Grenadine
Shake and strain into a chilled up glass for a properly vigorous cocktail.
1.5 oz. Sebago Lake Distillery Spider Island Rum
0.5 oz. Cointreau (triple-sec works too)
3 oz. fresh pineapple juice
0.5 oz. fresh lime juice (juice of ½ lime)
Grenadine for color (about 0.3 oz.)
Shake with ice and strain into a Collins glass. Garnish with a slice of pineapple and a cherry. Add a few cubes from the shaker to your glass if you’re out in the hot sun and there’s a risk of your cocktail getting warm.
SLD Brunch Bomb
1.5 oz. Sebago Lake Distillery KOPI Coffee Rum
16 oz. of your favorite Porter or Stout
Fill a pint glass with your favorite Porter or Stout. Take a generous swig of the beer to make a little room and to settle your nerves, then add the Rum. Unlike a mimosa, you don’t need to stick your pinky up while you’re drinking your Brunch Bomb, but you certainly can if you’re feeling frisky.
Energized by Maine’s long and storied history of rum production, Sebago Lake Distillery represents the ultimate dream of five long-time friends to establish a rum distillery in the region. The result of the endeavor is a range of unique, high-end rums that embody the team’s passion and the lifestyle of living by the lake where time slows down and fun comes easy. “Life by the lake is more relaxed and carefree,” says Dan Davis, Co-Founder and Head Distiller. “Our fall cocktail recipes are crafted for enhancing life as it comes, one sip at a time.”
Davis adds, “Sebago Lake Rums are 100% pot distilled in small batches using only the finest, all natural ingredients and each step of the process – mashing, fermenting and distilling – is executed from scratch at the distillery. Every valve is turned by hand and every batch is tasted and refined to perfection to create superior quality rums perfect for sipping lakeside or celebrating with friends when the moment is right.
