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!
i am definitely going to try this recipe. I always have prosecco at the cottage so I’ll try the italian version as well, 😉
Great! Let me know how you like it.
Thanks so much. This way many more people can enjoy a delicious truly Canadian cocktail!
Hey – I think I have the same glass pitcher – does yours have a star in the bottom?
The drink sounds like something I’d like to try. Just need to look for that Vodka…. 😉
