This is an apple-based brandy from the northwestern region of France. It showcases beautifully in the Widow’s Kiss cocktail. Hooch Bartenders are embracing Calvados for its subtle apple, spice, and sometimes pear qualities it brings to the glass. While not yet at every bar, trust the bartenders that do have it and are excited about it. Calvados is tremendous when played right in a cocktail. The Hooch Life has the best Calvados suggestions from our bartenders.
