#DOTW: The Canadian Cocktail

I keep fooling myself, thinking it’s going to get warmer soon, but it doesn’t. The Canadians are used to it, all the way up there, up north. So, here’s a cocktail that makes sense then for the winter time! I’m usually not too fond of cinnamon, but it looks like a bit of liquor with it does the trick for me. Enjoy this warming drink!



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Kraken spiced rum (or quality spiced rum of your choice)
  • 1/2 oz Maple Syrup
  • juice of half a lime
  • 2 oz apple cider
  • dash of cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in a Martini shaker with ice, and shake vigorously to dissolve cinnamon. Pour over ice in an old fashioned or rocks glass. Garnish with cinnamon stick and/or sliced lime.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
