Aromatic Tricks

This recipe was tailor made for Domaine Pinnacle Ice Cider, which, by its aromatic structure, marries brilliantly with maple-enhanced desserts. And when it comes to maple syrup, you should know that it is practically blood-related to Indian curry, as they share copious amounts of volatile compounds. Now, that’s gastronomic fusion! Sprinkle all of your maple-based dishes with a dash of curry, and you will understand! The union with ice cider is symbiotic, and the harmony simply orgasmic!
