The Story Behind The Calvados Old Fashioned
Made with either apples or pears, Calvados is the amazing brandy from the Normandy region of France. It’s very versatile, and can be used in a number of cocktails or sipped on its own. I find the delicate flavors of apple are perfect in an Old Fashioned, especially with the addition of homemade honey syrup.
