We’ve fallen in love with the Cohasset community after moving here from Boston three years ago. We worked to develop cocktails you would enjoy with your friends and family and at your favorite spot in town. We are having a hard time deciding how we’ll cast our own votes!
— Alison Sheffield

Interior Designer Alison Sheffield, owner of Sheffield Interiors, and Stephen Sheffield, Fine Art Photographer and Mixed Media Artist worked tirelessly to develop modern Cohasset cocktail recipes immersed in our rich town history. 

They studied the original Cohasset Punch and took a fresh look at how to continue this special Cohasset tradition. 
The Sheffields partnered with local businesses including Boston Harbor Distillery, owned by Cohasset’s own Rhonda Kallman and sourced local ingredients.
