Taylor Nissen, Shore Lodge’s sommelier and beverage program assistant manager, suggests using fresh huckleberries macerated in a little sugar when making the hotel’s famed Huckletini. “This tends to ripen the berries and juice them a bit, perfect for making drinks. When it gets a little warmer, you can find them all around Payette Lake [in McCall, Idaho]. Everyone has their little spots. Ponderosa Park is great for this, too,” says Nissen. shorelodge.com
