We recently visited a new distillery in Prince Edward County. What a marvellous place!
We decided to make their Canadian Cocktail for our celebration of my younger son’s 30th birthday. Here is the recipe from the distillery and a photo of our version. We had to search out the Aperol Bitters which were not available locally. Luckily there was a good supply in our neighbouring town. Ironically, this bright orange aperitif is the same drink that I had been trying to identify since our Italian biking tour, one I enjoyed each night on the barge. The Italians mix Aperol Bitters with Prosecco and a dash of soda water and call it Spritz. As you can see the Canadian Cocktail recipe calls for a pine bough–and there are many on the island–the big discussion was red pine or white–so, of course, we had to try both!
