Painted House Margarita from Harbor View Hotel – Martha’s Vineyard


Summer may be on its last legs, but Harbor View Hotel, located on the picturesque island of Martha’s Vineyard, has shaken up a few fun cocktails to keep the season going until the bottle runs out.  For those who can’t make a trip to the classic New England retreat, you’re really missing out. Back when we lived on the East Coast, we’d always do our best to get at least one Vineyard visit in per summer. If you really can’t make it, we can share one of the delicious drink recipes that they make at Harbor View’s two restaurants, Water Street and Henry’s Hotel Bar. BUT, we’ll only give it to you if you PROMISE you’ll try to visit next summer. Ok? Here it is –
