Today we made the maple gastrique for the Dining Room bar. We use it in our Apple Cocktail with Old Weller Bourbon, Liard's Applejack and apple cider. It's delicious!

This is one of our favorite white wines: Nigl "Freiheit" Grüner veltliner. Grüner veltliner was the hot wine, not too long ago, but luckily the shine has faded leaving us to quietly enjoy a bottle without feeling needlessly hip. It's a semi-aromatic variety, along the lines of Chardonnay, but with much more verve and delicacy. The nose is full of apple and apricot, but on the palate the mineral realy shines through. Drink it with anything, drink it alone, but drink it if you have the chance.
