We have done some pretty questionable things fueled by alcohol but we’ve also done some equally sketchy things completely sober. So it’s no surprise that when we asked our friends to help us with a new project, they were game, especially when drinking was involved.
Kamouraska Vodka, which is a product of Quebec, has a smooth, clean taste which comes from its triple distillation process and charcoal filtration. Currently, along with the regular flavoured Kamouraska vodka, they also produce different flavours, including: spiced, bacon, maple and ice cream.
We don’t usually gravitate towards flavoured alcohols but we’re open minded and we gave them a shot, actually we were pleasantly surprised with some of the results.
This was probably one of our favourite cocktail recipes that we tested out on our family and friends. It combined so many interesting flavours, it was divine! It was a perfect balance of spice from the paprika, and earthiness from the sage. We’re craving one right now…
- 2 oz Kamouraska Maple Vodka
- ¼ oz Canadian maple syrup (not Aunt Jemima, c’mon people!)
- ¾ oz lemon juice
- 2 pinches smoked paprika
- 3 sage leaves
- Put all the ingredients in a shaker except the sage leaves
- Shake well *shake shake*
- Strain into a martini glass
- Float sage leaf on top of drink
