At this year’s Shake, Sparkle and Stir Bar competition at the MUFSO Conference, Mellow Mushroom’s Michelle Booher took home the prize her Farmers’ Almanac cocktail.

The Farmers’ Almanac is the perfect cocktail for the transition of seasons as it blends summer and autumn flavors into a satisfying mix.

Farmers’ Almanac

Michelle Booher


  • Egg white
  • 3/4 oz. Maraschino Syrup
  • 2 oz. Minute Maid Apple Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Light brown simple sugar
  • 1 1/2 oz. Sailor Jerry Rum
  • Ground nutmeg
  • Orange twist

Preparation: Combine all of the ingredients into tin shaker WITHOUT ice. Make sure to start with egg white first before any of the other ingredients in case part of the shell breaks off. This ensures no liquor is wasted if part of the shell does break off. Dry shake the ingredients/add ice shake again. Strain into chilled coupe. Garnish with nutmeg and orange twist. Do not make twist above the drink as you usually would- it will make the head from the egg white dissipate.
