Sip Sip Hooray!
These 3- & 4- day/night cruises are a way to celebrate the finest of Maine flavors by imbibing with us. Enjoy craft cocktails or craft beers from Maine distillers and brewers that we love paired with the fabulous meals you have come to expect from the Riggin galley.
Each cocktail is crafted with the intention to combine unique flavors from around the world with fresh local ingredients from our community and our own backyard. Learn how to create delightful combinations of your own from our knowledgeable host, Lara Nixon, or sit back and enjoy a cocktail pairing with hors d’oeuvres, dinner, or with brunch. Mocktails are also available for those who do not wish to indulge in the available cocktail.
Lara Nixon is an award-winning bartender and a graduate of the Santa Rosa School of Bartending who has been practicing & teaching bar craft for over a decade. She is a bar craft professional focusing on private and public events, signature cocktail development, & commercial bar & beverage program consultation.
She started Bad Dog Barcraft in 2010 to make bitters like Sarsaparilla, Fire & Damnation & Bloody Mary and co-founded a Spirits Education program called Tipsy Tech in Austin, TX.
Windjamming brought Lara to Maine where she has been collaborating with captains on cocktail craft since 2017. Her work with the international association of culinary professionals means that bar craft for her is the marriage of culinary traditions and imbibing whether through alcoholic or non-alcoholic cocktails.
