All eyes are on Vancouver and I am looking forward to spending the weekend watching the last of the Olympics. Not only in my house, but everywhere I go people are energized. I have had conversations about every thing from the nuances of curling to Isabel, the blind husky — and can you say Team USA Hockey! Lots of good fun, great stories and an excitement that comes when we share beautiful wins and tragic losses. I looked around to see what the pubs, bars and lodges in British Columbia were serving and found this cocktail at most of them. As I watch the closing ceremony this weekend with friends, we will sip on Northern Shields and reminisce about our favorite moments of this the XXI Winter Olympic games.

½ ounce simple syrup

1/ounce. maple syrup

2 ounces apple juice
