Cocktail Recipe for The Blue 22

By Lara Nixon of Bad Dog Bar Craft

Ingredients

  • 5–7 fresh Maine blueberries

  • 1 oz London dry style gin

  • ½ oz dry orange Curaçao

  • ½ oz Maine blueberry shrub

  • ½ oz freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 1 orange

  • a pinch of ground cinnamon

Method

  1. Put the fresh blueberries in your glass of choice and muddle them a bit.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients. Give everything a quick stir and then top with fresh ice.

  3. Take the orange and slice off a nice piece of the peel.

  4. Twist it over the glass to express the oils into the cocktail before placing it on top.

  5. Finish off with a slight dusting of cinnamon.

“With only sixteen passengers on the Ladona you will have the opportunity to meet like-minded travelers and perhaps form friendships that will last long after you have disembarked. The kinship you feel with everyone on board in just the short span of a few days is remarkable.”
