Had a slow night at The Shameless Carnivore since all of our guests either attended or performed at Tweed River Music Festival. After completing a big project, I decided to treat myself to a cocktail, but wanted something a little different. What I ended up with was this refreshing twist on a Negroni:
1 ounce Gin
1 ounce Elderflower liqueur
1 ounce Campari
2 ounces Mango juice
For the elderflower, St. Germain would have been great, but I had cheaper stuff on hand which worked just fine. Also used Newman's Own Mango-Orange juice since that was in the fridge. Chilled in a shaker and served with an ice cube in a martini glass. The end product was pleasantly bitter, floral, herbal & tropical fruity all at the same time. At least I liked it...
Only one week to go until the beginning of The Vermont Festival Of The Arts, THE annual month-long celebration of ALL forms of art. Whatever your passion, you'll find some activity or event to peak your interest, each and every day of the festival.
Best of all, everything happens right here in The Mad River Valley. A stay at Weathertop Mountain Inn makes it easy. We're located right in the middle of all the activity. So get creative, enjoy summer & explore Vermont's Mad River Valley...all at the same time...
For those planning to visit Weathertop Mountain Inn and the Mad River Valley from now until August 18 (ish...), a bridge south of Warren is closed for repairs. If you are coming from the south, we suggest that you head north on either Route 7 or Route 22A, then come east over App Gap on Route 17. VTrans has a posted detour on Route 100, but it is a LONG way around. If you MUST come up Route 100, there is an alternate back road detour - contact us for details. FYI, the bridge that is under construction has a walkway available to pedestrians and cyclists if you were planning to cycle in that direction.
Hard to believe we're only two months away from our most popular peak season...foliage...
But right now gardens are in full bloom, the weather is great, and The Vermont Festival Of The Arts is in full swing. What more reason could you possibly need to visit the Mad River Valley this summer? BTW, if ya really needed them, we could give ya plenty of good reasons!
Hard to believe it's already the middle of July, but that means we're only two weeks away from the start of the Vermont Festival Of The Arts, located right here in the Mad River Valley. If you haven't done so yet, it's time to start making your plans! The Festival goes on for the entire month of August and offers something for everyone. Click here to go to their website, which includes a complete calendar of events.
Better yet...we're in the middle of all the activity. So stop by and see us!
