This past week I made and served “A Taste of Birch” cocktails at the Crescent Hill Gallery in Mississauga for the opening of Maya Eventov’s show. The subject of many of Maya’s paintings is Birch trees. (If you have not seen her work check it out at www.crescenthill.com ).
As promised to many of you who came by to enjoy Maya’s works and who loved this Birch Bourbon cocktail, I am posting this incredible recipe. Even those who do not typically drink bourbon (including me) gave this cocktail a big thumbs up!
“A Taste of Birch” Bourbon Cocktail
1 1/2 oz of bourbon
1/2 oz Canadian Birch Company Amber Gold Birch Syrup
1/2 oz fresh squeezed (and strained) lemon juice
Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice, strain and serve.
