This cream liqueur is the new best way to sweeten your coffee.
Since The Wine Ponce went local this week, we will, too.
Actually, we’re not just copying, since it’s been clear for a few months that Canadian whisky is getting ready for its moment in the spotlight, and we’ve just been waiting—breathlessly—for the slew of new local brown liquor releases at the LCBO.
There are three exciting products from nearby Forty Creek, but this week, we’re going to focus on their cream liqueur, an excellent alternative to that famed Irish cream, which is most every booze snob’s guilty pleasure. As much as people sing the praises of the spirit-forward cocktails and craft this and craft that, one inconvenient fact remains: As we all age, it’s getting harder and harder to drink a Boulevardier for breakfast.
To that end, we hereby officially endorse Forty Creek Cream Liqueur as the new best way to sweeten your coffee. As Irish Cream has gotten into cotton-candy flavours, Forty Creek has gone the other direction—it’s sweet at the start but adds a nice burn at the end.
Perfect to celebrate the moments of your life.
Forty Creek Cream Liqueur. LCBO 281378, $28.95.
