some recipe ideas to play with

As our valued customer in our tasting room, you may have received a copy of our recipes that we have developed in our own home. These are not created by professional bartenders, keeping them simple and traditional.

We encourage our customers to try these recipes and to get even more creative with our fruit brandies, liqueurs or the Lady of the Cask. Please contact us at anette@mapleleafspirits.ca and I will email you the list of recipes in a word document.

If you want to add your favourite recipe to this list, please share it with us!

We enjoyed the very well organized event.
