Mud Season Cocktails
Face it head on with these springtime cocktails
We may be late bloomers in Maine come springtime, but we do cherish each season. There is a fifth season we cherish the least: Mud Season.
Mud Season is that time between winter and spring, when the snow begins to melt and we don’t know whether we’ll be able to ski, sled, or snowshoe, or need to pull on our tall rubber boots and prepare for muddy puddles (that sounds like a fun name for something).
Forget even the thought of a car wash during Mud Season; just go and toss a $10 bill out the car window instead.
Mud Season conditions vary based on how slowly the snow melts and how quickly the ground begins to absorb it. Some years we wonder if this fifth season will ever end. But it does. A greening landscape, budding trees and blooming spring perennials are a welcome light at the end of the muddy tunnel.
