This week I made two cocktails for Mary inspired by booze from La Belle Province. Don’t worry about substitutions with more local products, it’s going to work out fine.
Cocktail 1 was called The Norman Conquest and was named for the late and truly great opera singer Jessye Norman. Shortly after her death I was discussing with friends how much her singing meant to us and we all agreed a drink would be a good idea.
1 shot Ungava Gin. (Any good floral gin will do!)
1/2 shot Casa Marisol Vermut
Mix shake well and adjust to taste!
Cocktail 2 was an Old and New World Fashioned! Something to warm your heart and the rest of you. This would probably be enough for two people or a whole evening!
1/2 shot Apple Brandy from Quebec (Michel Jodoin)
1/2 shot Brandy
1/2 shot Bourbon
1 shot Gran Marnier
Orange to garnish…
Here’s the show…Enjoy.
