‘Tis The Season for cozy cocktails, and on a crisp winter’s evening we found the absolute best at Blyth & Burrows in Portland, Maine.
In a nod to one of the Christmas classic films, the menu full of “Island of Misfit Toys” themed cocktails include Santa’s Milk and Cookies (White Chocolate Washed Stroudwater Rum, Allspice Dram, Becherovka) and the Sugar Plum Fairy (THE SUGAR PLUM FAIRY
Stroudwater Vodka, Galliano Apertivo, Plum, and Thyme)
Tucked along Exchange Street in Portland, Maine’s Old Port neighborhood, Blyth & Burrows is quickly earning the reputation for being the top cocktail bar in the region. The creative drinks, charm, and atmosphere of the interior complement perfectly with the history that surrounds this Portland newcomer.
Travel Today recently had the opportunity to visit Blyth & Burrows for Saturday evening cocktails. Joshua Miranda, the owner of Blyth and Burrows, is the perfect host and guide to Portland. After spending time opening some of the top restaurants around the world, Miranda opened Blyth and Burrows to complement the growth of Portland, Maine.
It is the perfect pre-dinner addition to a trip you may have planned to Portland, Maine.
If you are travelling during the spring or summer, make sure to check out some of our favorites including the Marquess of Queensbury (gin with blueberry lavender shrub and hints of peychaud’s bitters) and the Prince of Brazil (plantation white rum with hints of coconut, lime, and pear). With most cocktails under $15, it makes a great add to a tour of Old Port.
Inside, the curated music selection and lighting add to the ambiance of Blyth & Burrows. We have full confidence they will be pouring to locals and visitors for many years to come. Enjoy!
