Beautiful Bottles Make Welcome Gifts
Chambord Flavored Vodka, whose light pink tones will have everyone curious. It adds a nice dimension to typical vodka combinations with its black raspberry hints. I have been mixing it half and half with Pinnacle Crème de Pommes, a Canadian Ice Cider Cream Liquor, to create a more sophisticated substitute for egg nog. For a lighter version, thin out with ice and Raspberry Emergen-C-infused water. ••• L’Esprit de June liqueur is made from a combination of grapevine flowers in Cognac, France, which bloom for only a few days. Each handpicked flower is mixed with spirit to extract the unique flavors, then distilled by artisans, resulting in a delicate, floral and fruity liqueuer. Perfect to mix with champagne for a grand toast. ••• Galliano has re-issued Galliano L’Autentico, based on the original recipe of 1896. Juniper, anise and yarrow musk add herbal and botanical complexity to the signature vanilla flavor. Create a buzz by serving the original Harvey Wallbanger. In a tall glass mix 1.25 oz vodka, .25 oz Galliano, 3 oz orange juice and garnish with a slice of orange.
