Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur

The rich, golden hue, packaged in a sleek bamboo-shaped glass bottle: utmost sophistication. Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur adds spice to any event.

Originally produced in Doumen, a district in China’s Guangdong province, it became popular with the French aristocracy during colonial Indochine. Today’s recipe is a luscious combination of a syrup of crystallized Vietnamese baby ginger, cognac, orange blossom honey, and hints of Tahitian vanilla. The conflicting flavors blend together to add a little punch to any cocktail. Hints of white pepper and the sweet aroma of ginger delight the senses.

Try the Indochine Tonic — 1 part Canton, 1 part vodka, topped with ice-cold tonic water, and served with a lemon wedge. A spritzer with an exotic flair, guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser. Or keep it simple and make a classic Ginger Martini using 2 parts Domaine de Canton and 2 parts vodka. Spice up the holiday season with a warm Gingerbread Apple Cocktail, or sip straight for a little nightcap. Need an easy summer dessert? Splash Canton over fresh sliced peaches and pineapple. Guests will adore!

The Chinese have long touted ginger as a cure for many ailments, so drink up. Canton won Best in Show for Liqueur at the 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Need we say more?
