This newly created Canadian cocktail from Collingwood Canadian Whisky stands in commemoration of the first year anniversary of the launch of the spirit whilst giving a nod to our country’s first prime minister. It accentuates the distinctive Maplewood character of Collingwood’s and displays flavours of fresh Ontario peaches and Canadian maple-sweetened iced Earl Grey tea.
1.5 oz Ontario peach-infused Collingwood Whisky
½ oz Canadian maple syrup
2.5 oz Earl-grey tea, steeped and chilled
2 dashes Fee Brothers Peach Bitters
Slice fresh peaches and place inside a mason jar, then fill the jar with Collingwood Whisky (1 peach, to 8 oz of whisky)
Allow peaches to infuse for up to 48 hours, then strain and discard peaches
Prepare a serving of Earl Grey tea according to package instructions, allow steeping, and then chill until cooled
In a cocktail shaker, combine 1.5 oz of the peach-infused Collingwood Whisky and 2.5 oz of the iced tea. Sweeten with ½ oz of Canadian maple syrup and season with 2 dashes of Peach Bitters. Fill the shaker with ice and shake well.
Strain the cocktail into a rock glass or cocktail coupe. Garnish with slices of fresh peaches.
