Cocktail recipe: the Afterglow Add to ...

As the leaves fade to orange and float to the ground, our thoughts invariably turn to winter and the need to stay warm. To that end, Devlin's Cocktail Lounge in chilly Edmonton has just the thing - a dark, amber-tinged drink combining the velvety softness of cognac with the coziness of apricot brandy from Bols, the 430-year-old Amsterdam liqueur maker that earlier this month used the popular Alberta martini bar to launch the Canadian edition of its Bols Around the World Cocktail Competition. A hint of almond flavour in the brandy keeps the apricot from tasting too sweet, while the ice in the glass reminds that the inevitable is coming. And making it couldn't be easier: Simply shake all the ingredients with ice, strain into a cocktail glass and serve.
