Huckleberry Win

Idaho’s state fruit-the huckleberry-takes center stage at the Shore Lodge in McCall, Idaho thanks to the lodge’s Huckleberry Mojito. Try it out for yourself!

Two pinches of fresh mint
1 oz huckleberries soaked in simple syrup
1.5 oz 44 North Huckleberry Vodka
¾ oz fresh lime juice
3 oz soda water

In a pint glass, muddle mint, huckleberries, simple syrup and three ice cubes.

Add vodka, lime juice, soda water and more ice.

Pour into shaker and shake twice.

Add a splash of soda and garnish with a fresh lime wedge.

—1.5 oz. Tito’s Handmade Vodka
—1.5 oz. Baileys Salted Caramel
—2 oz. half and half

Combine ingredients in a Belgian beer glass garnished with soft caramel along the rim, chocolate sauce and a chocolate branch. Looks fancy schmancy and tastes deee-licious!
