We’re totally on board the tea trend and have been adding tea to a variety of our cocktails! The fruity aromas of red tea (also known as rooibos) pair nicely with the orangey notes in citrus liqueur. When mixing with rum, we suggest using a white rum to help give your cocktail a luminous appeal. Our Spice Forest can be enjoyed chilled or warm. If you feel like curling up with a comforting cup of tea, just leave out the ice cubes and swap the highball for your favourite mug!
A home bar essential, citrus liqueur like Meaghers Triple sec is also really versatile in the kitchen. Add it to your favourite desserts, such as citrus liqueur and chocolate lava cakes, almond and citrus cookies, pannacotta with a raspberry and orange coulis… the possibilities are endless!
Place the tea bag and two pieces of orange zest in a mixing glass and add the boiling water. Remove the tea bag after one minute, and put tea in the refrigerator. Combine the white rum, citrus liqueur and orange juice in a highball glass containing a few ice cubes. Add tea and stir using a mixing spoon. Garnish with orange zest on a skewer.
Originally from Italy, bitter almond liqueur is a staple in the cocktail universe, used in a variety of classics such as the Amaretto Sour. Now we have our very own Quebec-made almond liqueur — Avril Amaretto, featuring notes of maple, nuts and coconut. Complètement irrésistible
Nowadays cafés, restaurants and bars offer a never-ending selection of coffee creations: served hot with a splash of cognac, served chilled with grapefruit and thyme… the choice is yours!

Classic brunch cocktail par excellence, the mimosa is getting a makeover with a splash of Sortilège maple whisky! A delicious touch of local flavour transforms the traditional OJ-Champagne combo into a mouth-watering cocktail that’ll have your guests cheering, encore!
We used sparkling wine in this recipe to give our cocktail a bit of pop. You can opt for one of the less expensive bottles of bubbly, since the whisky liqueur and maple syrup will steal the show anyway! For the perfect balance, we suggest using a dry sparkling wine, such as one with the Fruity and Vibrant taste tag.
Combine the liqueur and syrup in a shaker filled with ice cubes. Shake vigorously for 8 to 10 seconds. Strain into an INAO glass using an ice strainer. Top off with sparkling wine.
