Food

Brooke Mihoces, owner of Vintage Views, loves craft cocktails and camping. Her absolutely stunning bohemian vintage Shasta trailer perfectly marries the two. She’ll even bring it over to your next party, too, whether a wedding, corporate event, or kid’s birthday party (because parents might want a drink, too)! They even serve incredible non-alcoholic drinks after all.

“We’re really for people who just want to throw a really fun party, do something different. It puts people in a festive mood to have your own personal bar. We’re really laid back and always trying new things.”

Vintage Views focuses on quality and independent producers. Whether it’s by sourcing their juices from Rutabaga Craft Juicery or using craft spirits like Chesapeake Bay Distillery’s Blue Ridge Vodka, Vintage Views cocktails are unique and utterly delicious. For Brooke, her passion is, “To bring something new to people, that’s my jam.” That’s why we’re making Vintage Views’ Lavender Whiskey Sour our Drink of the Month.

Ingredients:

  • Lavender Whiskey Sour
  • Michter’s Whiskey
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Lavender simple syrup
  • Egg white foam

Brooke’s had a blast with Vintage Views’ first foray into the mobile bar scene, so much so that she’s even working on a second trailer, complete with service window on one side and a “serve yourself” tap wall. They’ll be able to serve beer, cocktails, cold brew coffee, chai tea, lemonade, or anything that can be kegged. Be on the lookout for Vintage Views camper around town, or follow them @vintageviewsbar on Instagram, so you don’t miss out on some of the best cocktails in town. They’ll also be a featured vendor at the West Annapolis’ October celebrations this fall. If you’re looking to get involved with this wandering bar, customized quotes pending on the type of event, hours & number of guests are made as fast as the drinks.
