Cocktails and Charcuterie
30Boltwood at the Lord Jeffery Inn
One of my favorite things to do when on vacation is to take a mid-afternoon break from touring the local attractions and give my tired feet a rest and chill over some light snacks and cocktails. It's a way to relax and not feel so stressed from trying to fit so many things in - in a short amount of time. In addition, it gives us the opportunity to discuss upcoming plans and meet ups with traveling companions. And this trip to Hampshire County MA was no exception!

Because the cowboy couldn't make this trip to Hampshire County MA, at the last minute, my friend Gayle stepped up to the plate making it a 'girls getaway' weekend. After a morning spent exploring the area, having lunch, and fitting in some museum time, we decided to take a break and catch up with friends Wendy and Greg from Connecticut Lifestyles Magazine, also visiting Amherst, at 30Boltwood Restaurant at the Lord Jeffery Inn.

Wendy and Greg had stayed in the area before so they gave us a mini tour of the beautiful Lord Jeffery Inn. This historic inn has been operating in Western Massachusetts since 1926. Fondly referred to as “The Jeff” it is the perfect choice for travelers seeking the quintessential New England experience.

We meandered into the attached restaurant, 30Boltwood, to get caught up on our evening plans and enjoy a bite to eat.
30Boltwood is a full-service restaurant, that emphasizes farm-to-table cuisine prepared with natural, farm-fresh local ingredients. We settled in at a cozy corner table and perused their cocktail menu.

Their cocktail menu was dubbed the "Naughty List" and contained some creative cocktails! I ordered the Devil Buddha made with Buddhas Hand Peublo Viejo, Egyptian Licorice Tea, Blood Orange Lime, and Chili Infused Agave, pictured bottom left. We enjoyed all the cocktails!

We were also offered a charcuterie plate, one of my favorite things to pair with afternoon cocktails! I mean really, what's better than cocktails and charcuterie when day drinking!

Be sure to visit the Lord Jeffery Inn, either for an overnight stay, or simply to enjoy the fine food and drink at 30Boltwood! Both places are high on our list for a return trip to both spend a night in the beautiful inn and sample some more delicious food from their extensive menu.
We know you'll like it too!
