The cooler Fall and Winter seasons are upon us. It is time for us to gather with friends to enjoy dinners together, or for you to watch a movie or hockey game on TV with your significant other. You can enjoy all these activities with wine, but if you would like a change, why not try Cabot Trail Maple Cream. I received this a few months back and I have been sipping it on ice as well as putting some in my coffee instead of milk. Both are great ways I’ve found to enjoy this liquor. I am not fond of the peppermint flavour in some liquors. I prefer something mild that you can sip. The liquor is made from authentic Canadian maple syrup combined with Canadian cream, made in Quebec.
My Cabot Trail Maple Cream on ice had a nice light cocoa colour. It had equal parts of maple syrup as well as chocolate and cream aromas. I enjoyed the thick creamy consistency of this liquor. It is medium sweet and lightens up on the finish. Nicely balanced sugar, maple syrup, chocolate and creaminess on the palate. Not overly strong on your tastebuds, which I prefer.
In coffee, the maple syrup and cream softened the bitterness in my morning coffee and added a pleasant sweetness. It is not a taste that I can tire of easily. It probably would be really nice to enjoy this coffee with a plate of pancakes with maple syrup and bacon. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.

- In a shaker filled with ice cubes, pour the maple cream, the orange liquor and the coffee. Shake vigorously.
