Canary Nest

The Canary Nest is an inspired wine cocktail, and the brainchild of Claire Sprouse from Sunday in Brooklyn. The spicy, rich flavors of pear brandy and cinnamon syrup elevate a simple dry white wine into something worthy of an autumn feast.

Sprouse calls for an off-dry white riesling, but any dry-ish wine white will do. Fresh-squeezed orange juice is always better, but in the Canary Nest it really makes a difference.

Lo-Fi Vermouth is used in the original recipe for its unique blend of bright botanicals. Nearly any sweet vermouth will still be lovely, but we’d steer clear of overly-assertive, peppery vermouths like Punt e Mes in the Canary Nest.
