I’m Your Huckleberry

Barbacoa Bartender Mark Allen Shares a Summer Cocktail

Mark Allen’s Huckleberry Cocktail

Difficult to cultivate and found naturally in the wild, huckleberry is the state fruit of Idaho. Bartender Mark Allen shares his berry-inspired cocktail.

A native of Boise, Mark has been with Barbacoa for six years. “Boise Weekly” has named him Best Bartender five times, and he is a Level 1 Sommelier. His favorite cocktail is sazerac, which is served in a signature martini glass made of ice known as an “icetini.”



2 ounces Koenig Huckleberry Vodka

5 ounces white cranberry juice

3 fresh Idaho huckleberrries


Pour 2 ounces Koenig Huckleberry Vodka into glass. Top with 5 ounces white cranberry juice and stir. Garnish with three huckleberries and serve.

The phrase “I’m your huckleberry” is a way of saying that one is just the right person for a given job.
