Cocktail recipe: The Apple Pie Add to ...

Bartender Neil Daoust had winter on his mind when he created his latest cocktail, which relies on Calvados apple brandy to give it its bite. "I was thinking of the coming cold and that made me think of a warm slice of apple pie," says the resident mixologist at Nectar Social House in Dartmouth, N.S.

"The nearby Annapolis Valley, whose farms produce much of the province's apples and pears, also influenced me," Daoust adds. "I wanted the combination of ingredients to be so delicious that people would think they were having dessert and not just a drink."

To make the Apple Pie, combine the pear vodka, apple brandy and Chartreuse in a shaker filled with ice, then add a splash of apple juice and freshly puréed pear nectar. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and green apple spiral.
