Cocktail Signé Local: Apple sour au cidre Du Minot

Nothing better than a good cocktail to celebrate 2016 which will soon show up!

For the occasion, we suggest that you pay tribute to Quebec products and toast the New Year with an alcoholic product unique to us: ice cider.

An Apple Sour with Minot cider for 2016

This alcohol made of apples can be tasted very well served solo. It is, moreover, its sweet and mild taste that makes it famous. We couldn't ask for a better way to celebrate the arrival of the snow, which is just beginning to snow.

In order to make you discover the many facets of this magnificent product, we have concocted an Apple Sour based on ice cider from the Cidrerie du Minot which will reveal all the charms of this alcohol.

We call this "drink" the " Apple Sour" since the sweet aromas of cider will be, in this glass, mixed with the liveliness of lemon and tangerine. A true delight, not too sweet, just sour enough and round in the mouth, which will charm both “sugar bugs” and cocktail purists.

We can say that with this drink, you will be well armed to attack the new year.

Bet on the unique touch of ice cider

Ice cider is the product of apple juice fermented by the action of the cold of our Quebec winter. It is the unique climate of our province that inspired its creation.
