Best Drinks - Maine shows ingredients used to make Remember the Maine cocktail. Ingredients shown left to right are: Sweet Vermouth, Templeton Rye Whiskey, Maraschino Liqueur, and Absinthe.

1. Add 1/2 teaspoon of Absinthe to chilled cocktail glass. Roll glass around to coat inside with Absinthe. MST people discard the excess, but I am not most people. Set glass aside.

2. Add 2 ounces Templeton Rye Whiskey, 3/4 Sweet Vermouth, and 2 teaspoons Lazzaroni Liquori Maraschino Liqueur to mixing glass with ice and stir well. Strain ingredients from mixing glass into Absinthe glass. Enjoy!

3. Looking for some history and culture while drinking your beverage? Visit Natalie’s at Camden Harbour Inn located at 83 Bayview Street, Camden, Maine. The bar has been created from the doors of an old French Convent. Love their reuse, recycle concept. Love their specialty cocktails even more. Visit their website at or click here to view their menu selections.

Next beverage of choice is the Maine Collins Cocktail. Yes, it has blueberries!
