Timberpoint Cooler

Timberpoint Cooler is a popular drink in the Pacific Northwest. The history of the drink can be traced back to 1919 when three men, one being A.B. Yeager, created the recipe for this cocktail. Yeager is said to have been inspired by a boating trip on Puget Sound when he had an idea for the perfect drink to have at the end of a day on the water.

With The Timberpoint Cooler you’ll take your gin and tonic to the next level with this sophisticated cocktail, which takes its inspiration from the cucumber-infused gin favored by Prince Charles.
