Canadian Spring Cider Cocktail

Longing for the spring?  Can’t take it anymore (Kinda like Sterling, the Cider Corgi here)  Well, how about something that has the taste of a Canadian Spring, Maple Sugar!

Desaranto 1.5 oz
Calvados 1 oz
Thornbury spiced Cider 250ml
Cinnamon spice stick

Fireball (to give it more kick, replace the Calvados or Desaranto)
Change the cider, change the taste

Description:  A spiked spiced cider with traditional Canadian maple syrup flavour, it reminds us of a Maple Sugar Cookie. An alternative to a desert, just watch out for it catching up to you with the 2.5oz of spirits in a half can.

If you are looking for a dessert in a glass, this is a stellar cocktail. A cider reminiscent of the pie your grandma makes for special occasions, it is a warming, very sweet concoction that has all the flavours you’d find in an apple pie – including the vanilla ice cream scoop on the side!
