Cocktail of the Week: The Cliff House Siren

By Olivia Cuccaro

By Olivia Cuccaro

The Siren

  • 1.5 oz Blue Curacao
  • 2 oz watermelon-infused coconut rum
  • .75 oz blood orange juice
  • .5 oz pineapple juice

To create this cocktail of the week, shake the rum, blood orange juice and pineapple together in a shaker tin. Pour blue curacao into a hurricane glass and fill with ice. Strain the rum into hurricane glass on top of blue curacao and serve. (To make watermelon-infused coconut rum, carve out half a watermelon, fill with coconut rum and let sit for 48 hours.)

Named for the mythological creatures who captivated lowly sailors with their songs, this cocktail of the week’s fruity flavor is just as alluring. Drawing on its coastal setting, Cliff House Maine has introduced the sea-inspired Siren cocktail as a celebration of summer weather by the ocean.

“When creating The Siren we wanted to bring in quintessential summer ingredients for our guests to enjoy,” said Caitlin Hula, Beverage Manager at Cliff House Maine, in speaking to Elite Traveler. “The watermelon-infused coconut rum along with other Caribbean juices transport you onto a beach with your toes in the sand. By mixing blood orange into the cocktail, you cut the sweetness of the pineapple and coconut with a hint of tart. The watermelon adds a refreshing twist at the end of the drink.”

Set atop Bald Head Cliff on the coast of Southern Maine, Cliff House is a serene New England getaway overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Just an hour north of charming Boston, Cliff House comprises 130 stylish guest rooms and suites, a luxury spa and wellness center, oceanfront dining and outdoor space. After sampling The Siren, continue your evening of seaside relaxation from your private terrace with views of the ocean. Decorated in coastal style, Premium Collection rooms include king-size bed with white linens, in-room wine cooler and fireplace. Look out this fall as Cliff House is set to debut its new suites along with an adults-only pool and cabanas.

Cliff House is located at 591 Shore Road Cape Neddick, ME 03902For more information, please visit
