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. SIPS ON THE WATERFRONT The White Elephant, located in the Brant Point neighborhood on the outskirts of town, is home to the Brant Point Grill. Known...Read More >

Drinking IN Nantucket’s Indian Summer

Nantucket is breathing a huge sigh of relief these days.  As the fast and furious summer chapter on island will soon close, the door to the illustrious autumn begins to open. The sun begins to set a little earlier, although no less spectacular of a stunning colorful escapade, and the temperature begins to gracefully fall, reminding us to carry an extra layer for warmth and comfort just in case. Now is the perfect time to drink in some of the beauties that the Grey Lady has to offer, sans the hustle and bustle of the summer season, and with an apropos pairing to highlight the experience. THAR SHE BLOWS Always on the lookout for a good time had by all, the Captain of your ship should gather the crew to experience an afternoon at the Nantucket Whaling Museum.  Dedicated to the history of whaling as it pertains to the island, be sure to set aside a few hours in order...Read More >

Rosé After Labor Day: After Summer Sippers

DRINK PINK FOR THE HOLIDAYS Rosé isn’t just about warm sultry summer days on sunny beaches anymore. Also sometimes referred to as ‘Nantucket Water,’ this refreshing category of wine, as an alternative to red or white, has become part of the glamorous lifestyle associated with life on our magical island. Who says any of this has to end now that we are into fall? Definitely not us on this end! As the sun begins to set a little sooner in the evening and the night air becomes crisp and worthy of your favorite cozy zip sweatshirt, now is the time to start the transition to fall weather drinking rosés that offer a little more substance than your light and easy-drinking summer sipper.

Pleasures of Drinking Pink

Summer on Nantucket has become synonymous with drinking rosé wine. On the boat, at the beach, sipping it waterfront with breakfast, lunch or dinner are just a few occasions where one can be caught with a full glass of pink pleasure in their hand. With such variety and spice among all the new, unique rosé selections available these days, drinking pink is now acceptable throughout the year. Which rosé wine you choose to drink, however, should change with the season just like your other eating and drinking habits do. As summer is winding down, this is the perfect time to transition into enjoying a different style of rosé than the light, refreshing one you would imbibe during the dog days of summertime.  Being on the cusp of fall, here is a selection of tried-and-true American-made rosés worthy of consideration and reflection as we transition into my favorite season. The best of rosés during this time of year are those that...Read More >
