Featured Recipes

We live, breathe and cook with maple around here. Over the course of many years of experimentation we have accumulated a stack of recipes that have been tested, improved and repeated until they are just right.   We present them in three categories: Drink, Eat, and Indulge. ‘Drink’ is mostly cocktails but there are a few non-alcoholic beverages as well, including the very simple and delicious Maple Milk. ‘Eat’ showcases how maple enhances savory dishes and ‘Indulge’ speaks for itself. New recipes are added regularly, so please subscribe or check in to see what our featured recipe is and feel free to send us your own ideas through the Contact page.


Sugar Shack Mule

This is a fresh twist on a traditional Mule cocktail by Jennifer Trombley.

The Oakledge

An homage to one of Burlington’s best waterfront sites.

Sugar House Widow

A sugar house widow is a wife who doesn’t see but brief glimpses of her husband during the sugaring season. This cocktail might make the separation entirely bearable.

The Snow Melt

One of the winning entries from Stonecutter Distiller’s Maple Madness contest. Whiskey, lillet, chartreuse and Runamok Hibiscus Infused Maple make for an intriguing combo.


Another excellent cocktail from Stonecutter’s Maple Madness contest by J. Jensen.  This one combines boiled cider with Stonecutter Whiskey, amaro and Ginger Infused Maple for a spicy-sweet concoction.  Jubilee indeed.

The Purple Rose of Cairo

A gorgeous cocktail from wine expert Abby Kellie, containing Stonecutter Gin, Hibiscus Infused Maple and sparkling rosé.

Rebel Heart

An excellent whiskey cocktail from a woman who is both an experienced bartender and established ice cream producer. One has nothing to do with the other, it’s just cool that she excels at both.

Maple Blossom

The Maple Blossom is a refreshing summer cocktail by Jamie Montiero, the head bartender at Mama’s VT in Ludlow. Using Stonecutter Spirits Gin, grapefruit juice and Runamok’s Jasmine Infused Maple, this seems to us the perfect lakeside drink.

Secret Weapon

A refreshing summer drink with whiskey, Cocchi Americano Rosa and Runamok’s Makrut Lime-leaf Infused Maple. One of the winners from Stonecutter Spirits’ Maple Madness cocktail contest. A secret no more.

The Dude

Using Runamok’s new Coffee Infused Maple Syrup to make a White Russian results in a drink that is a step up.  With flavors as complex as the plot to the Big Lebowski, this cocktail will send you into a realm where life, carpets and bowling all make sense.


Vermont Poke Bowl

No, it has none of the ingredients of a traditional Poke Bowl but we hate to be left out of a trend.

Arancini with Merquén

Up your game with finger food. Crispy baked rice with a gooey, cheesy center is perfect for dipping in our Merquén Infused Maple Syrup.


Indian Pudding

Described in 1662 by John Winthrop as “… a food very pleasant” which is colonial-speak for, “It rocks”. Made with cornmeal, milk and molasses, it is a hearty custard that is just perfect topped with Cinnamon+Vanilla Infused Maple Syrup.

Pear Maple Ginger Sorbet

The lighter side of winter desserts. Made with fresh pears and Runamok Ginger Infused Maple, this will keep you from ending the meal in a food coma.

Dutch Pear, Baby

Yorkshire pudding meets pears meets Cardamom Infused Maple Syrup = perfect fall dessert.

Maple Rum Cake

This recipe is a mix of Midwestern practicality, Eastern stubbornness and Vermont magic.
