Thanks to Chef Lynn Crawford for this amazing cocktail creation that was recently featured on the LCBO website. We can’t think of anything that screams fall in Niagara than fresh apples & White Rye!

• 1 oz. cranberry apple shrub (recipe below)
• 1/2 oz. lime juice
• 2 dashes Dillon’s Orange Bitters
• 1 oz. fresh pressed apple juice/cider

Cocktail Preparation:

1. In a mason jar or cocktail shaker filled with ice, mix Dillon’s The White Rye, shrub, lime juice, bitters and cider together.
2. Shake & strain into coupe glass or serve in rocks glass over a 2″ ice cube.
3. Garnish with fresh cranberries or apple.


• 1 cup fresh cranberries, rinsed
• 1 cup sugar
• 1 apple (gala if available)
• 3/4 cup Della Terra gravenstein apple white balsamic vinegar
