After dessert, we returned back and it is now time to ask the question of aperitif. Then, to accompany the blinis with beet, I offer you a short drink, the ” pomme de pin “, a cocktail with calvados and syrup of buds of pine. So, yes, I know of buds of pine at this time it not run the streets, don’t panic because you can easily buy in drugstores. As a bonus I even gives you the steps to follow to make the syrup, in case you still not find the “all done” !

So yes it is to eat, of course, with moderation at the risk of finishing off under the table a little earlier than expected, but it is the perfect cocktail to impress the gallery (you even will be able to show off with the syrup from the pine house !) !
