One of the perks of living in Québec are all the apple farms. Go out and pick straight for your tastebuds.
So imagine my delight when Quebec brand Les Vergers LaFrance introduced the first cider vermouth, Rouge Gorge!
Next, the taste:
To be honest, when I saw vermouth, I was scared as I thought of very dry martinis. Rouge Gorge is a complex concoction that leaves a flavour of caramel apples on the tongue.
It is SO GOOD.
4 oz Rouge Gorge over ice with a quarter of orange. Or do my mini version in antique glassware as seen above.
Bonus: eat a bit of the orange while sipping as it brings out the crisp apple taste even more.
Rouge Gorge can be found in any SAQ. If you’re a fan of cider ice wine, port or scotch, you will adore this cider vermouth.
There is nothing like a gorgeous cocktail to make any day brighter.
Merci, Rouge Gorge for bottle of sun-kissed apples!
