“Delicious. With permission from the owners: "an excellent aperitif as it is based on fruit and wine rather than spirits so it will not 'spoil' or numb the palate before a special meal. It features Neige Ice Cider, another distinctive and beautiful Quebec product from the Hemmingford region. It was created for us by internationally acclaimed and award winning sommelier (and our former somellier and manager) Veronique Rivest" Les Fougere's is one of the best restaurants I have been to, and thankfully they are near me. Award winning food and drink and they have shared many in a cookbook whose proceeds go to a local charity.”
