The Canterbury Cocktail

October 22, 2014

Author Notes:

An impressive autumnal cocktail perfect for your fall get-togethers. Fragrant spice balances perfectly with bright and sweet profiles for a boozy drink to keep you warm on those chilly autumn evenings…

In our opinion, the key to this cocktail is a quality sweet vermouth. Enjoy!
