Food & Drink – Autumn 2011

The autumn edition of Food & Drink is now available at the LCBO. Hurry-in to get your copy, these run-out very quickly (literally).

Just yesterday when I walked in and saw that is was in the racks, I found myself practically running to get my copy. The drink featured on the cover looks very yummy! Here’s the recipe:

Orchard Mist

(from lbco website)

To a cocktail shaker, add ¼ cup cran berries and ¼ cup sweet red apples, peeled and chopped. Muddle well. Fill the shaker with ice and add 1½ oz Calvados, ½ oz lemon juice, ½ oz to 1 oz simple syrup to taste (see TIP).

Shake sharply and strain into a goblet filled with crushed ice. Add a pinch of cinnamon and garnish with apple slices and whole cranberries.

TIP To make simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water, bring to boil, stir until sugar has dissolved. Once cooled, store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Creative thirst quenching on a hot day!

I don’t know where you live, but it’s really hot here in beautiful Cornwall, Ontario. It’s the perfect weather for iced coffee. True you can always go to one of those coffee houses and get one fast. But did you know that making your own iced coffee at home is easy as 1, 2, 3?

Iced Coffee from Love Love Food
Here a fool-proof recipe to make this delicious iced beverage, for very little money.

Simply make 1 cup of strong percolator coffee (if you have an espresso machine, simply make two double espressos). After, fill the largest glass or cup you have with ice. When the coffee is done, add 1 tbs of sweetened condensed milk (Eagle Brand) to the coffee and stir until it’s all dissolved (for a lower fat version you can substitute with 1 tbs of honey or agave syrup). Lastly, pour the coffee over the ice, give it a good stir so that the ice melts a little, add a splash of milk (any kind of milk works, even soy), then one last quick stir and enjoy!

Love and Coffee!…
