The Dimetapp Cocktail is said to be Idaho’s Official State Cocktail. To make this glass of deliciousness, fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 2 ounces vodka and 2 ounce coconut rum. Cover and shake until shaker becomes frosty and most of the ice has melted. Strain ingredients into cocktail glass filled with ice. Top off with grape soda. Several recipes online state NuGrape soda is the ingredient to use. I was unable to find that specific brand of soda at the stores in my area, so not NuGrape soda it is. Sorry, not sorry.
The next cocktail recipe to be shared is a Huckleberry Martini. Remember, Huckleberries and Idaho are quite the match and this cocktail does not disappoint. Add 2 ounces vodka, 2 ounces lemonade, 2 ounces cranberry juice, 1 ounce Chambord, 1 ounce lemon juice and 1/2 ounce huckleberry syrup to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Cover and shake until shaker becomes frosty and most of the ice has melted. Strain ingredients into chilled martini glass. I now have Huckleberry syrup. Huckleberry preserves. I went deep into the Huckleberry rabbit hole!
Huckleberry Lemonade Cocktail
The Huckleberry Lemonade Cocktail recipe is next. It’s has Huckleberries, how could I resist. Fill your cocktail shaker with ice. Add 2 ounces vodka, 2 ounces lemonade, 2 ounces Limoncello and 1/2 ounce huckleberry syrup. Cover and shake until shaker becomes frosty and most of the ice has melted. Strain ingredients into a cocktail glass filled with ice.
Did you know huckleberries have been used, and still are to help treat heart conditions, pain, and infections. Huckleberries are known to be full of antioxidants, high in iron, and a great source of vitamin C and potassium. Tastes good and are good for you, that’s a win, win!

Idaho’s most popular cocktail is the Whisky Sour. In turn, the most popular whisky purchase by Idahoans is Canada’s Black Velvet whisky. Add 3 ounces Black Velvet whisky, 2 ounces lemon juice and 1 ounce simple syrup to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Cover and shake until shaker becomes frosty and most of the ice has melted. Strain ingredients into chilled martini glass. Garnish with lemon as desired. Featuring an Idaho themed cocktail means featuring Idaho themed ingredients! Cheers to Canadian whisky! That is whiskey without the “e”. My brain is still having a hard time with that one!
