Fall Cocktails at The Bar

Do you like a little spice, or prefer a sweet twist in your drink? Or maybe you’ll have one of each. Our team of expert mixologists have created the perfect fall menu infusing seasonal ingredients like apple cider, cacao, vanilla, and orange zest. These autumnal cocktails are perfect for donning your favorite sweater, grabbing a fireside seat at The Bar’s outdoor patio overlooking Payette Lake, and toasting to the change of the seasons.

Cosmo-not at Shore Lodge


Our gin-based mix features an autumn twist on a classic Cosmo – the tartness of pomegranate and citrus pair perfectly with the dryness of the gin and the herbal aromas of rosemary.

Sweet Start

Here’s a sophisticated twist on an espresso martini that features the kick of a freshly brewed espresso, with the dynamic flavors of vanilla and salted caramel for contrast.

Wine and Cheese Pairings at The Bar

If cocktails aren’t your go-to nightcap, we invite you to check out our recommended cheese pairings and expand your palate’s portfolio as you sip and mingle over a selection of wines and cheeses offered right at The Bar.

To find your ideal preference, we’ll let you in o a secret. The answer lies in the ability to know the underlying flavors of the wine you’re drinking. Thick and sweet wines go well with pungent and crumbly cheeses, while a bright and acidic wine will pair better with soft and sweet cheese. Becoming familiar with distinguished wines and tasting different varietals is key to being a wine pairing master. Here’s a quick guide on our most notable pairings:

  • Pinot Noir (Bright Berry) & Cheddar (Smoky and sharp)
  • Malbec (Velvety Fruit) & Stilton (Delicately complex)
  • Riesling (Tangy citrus) & Brie (Sweet and creamy)

Whether you’re interested in savoring the newest additions to The Bar menu or looking to flex your wine and cheese pairing muscle, we’ve got a seat saved just for you! Visit us Monday – Saturday from 3 – 10pm and Sundays from 12noon – 10pm.
