Uncommon Gifts for a Spirited Holiday Season

The holidays come the same time every year, yet we struggle as to what to give our nearest and dearest and, of course, we always wait until last minute. You shop online and pay for expedited shipping in order for the gift to arrive in a timely fashion. You don’t really like the gift you finally decided to give, but you had to get something. You had to pay extra for gift wrapping since you never saw or touched the present you purchased. This doesn’t sound like much of holiday cheer.  I hope you were at least listening to Christmas music (with a glass of wine in hand) while you were late night binge shopping to make your holiday shopping situation somewhat tolerable. Do you want to know how to eliminate this painful process of what should be a merry moment in gift giving? Do you want to feel like you got your money’s worth instead of feeling like you...Read More >

Nantucket’s Fall Inspired Cocktails

Columbus Day weekend will soon come and go. With that, several of Nantucket’s seasonal hot spot dining establishments will be shuttering their doors until they re-open again for either the island’s magical Christmas celebration (also known as Nantucket Stroll) or even sometime next spring. Luckily, there are numerous locations that do remain open for those who enjoy the lush taste of food and lucid pace of island dining that is available to us this time of year. The festive flavors of fall are also translated into the creative craft cocktail lists found across the island. From cranberries on the harbor to seasonal takes on classic drinks, what this means for you is that there are numerous locations on Nantucket open and ready to receive you with the warm hospitality our restaurants are well-known for.

A Toast to Sea Inspired Libations

Coastal living invokes thoughts of bathing in the sun and times spent swimming in the surf of ocean water.  Standing in line for ice cream, staying up late to admire the stars and wearing a hat most days to shade from the sun are all part and parcel of summer on Nantucket.  However, not all coastal conditions are created equal and neither are the libations that come from them. Sea-shanty worthy drinks are an expression of their watery sources, no matter how far and distant in between.  Take a liquid adventure as you discover with Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie a handful of libations worthy of your next oceanic experience. AN ORGANIC OCEAN You are what you eat, or drink in this case, and wouldn’t it be nice to know that you are putting only the best ingredients in your body while also being eco-friendly. Aloha to OCEAN ORGANIC VODKA from the beautiful island of Maui in the Hawaiian Islands.  This...Read More >

Local Libations Made Easy

We have access to fresh eggs, succulent strawberries, delicious sweet corn and all the heirloom tomatoes you can eat, along with a plethora of fragrant, colorful flowers to adorn any Nantucket home.
