This week’s cocktail is rather tropical for February in Calgary, but I just couldn’t help myself. I attended a media tasting at a new resto-lounge called The Yellow Nectarine (a.k.a TYN Lounge) and sampled this delicious drink.
The star ingredient is the brandy, which goes nicely with the white wine and fresh fruit juices. If you’re craving a patio sipper mid-winter, this’ll do nicely.
1 oz brandy
2 oz pineapple juice
2 oz orange juice
1 oz lime juice
2 oz white wine
Lemon and lime wedge garnish
Fill a wine glass with ice and add the ingredients in the order listed above. Garnish with a lemon and lime wedge, stir and serve.

As its name suggests, The Yellow Nectarine specializes in food and drinks made with nectarines or nectarine syrup. Their signature cocktail is a Nectarini, which you can read about in one of my upcoming Calgary Herald Spirited Calgary cocktail columns. In the meantime, here’s a sneak preview of what it looks like. Cheers!
