This week we are featuring Cana’s Feast: The Hammer & Tongs L'Afrique

This year thanks to Cana’s Feast Winery, wine event attendees will be able to taste the Hammer & Tongs L'Afrique sweet vermouth based on Kola Nut and Turmeric. This tasting provides guests the opportunity to add an apertivo to their wine selections. There are 23 different botanicals in the vermouth formula, giving it a mysteriously dark & earthy aroma, and pleasantly bitter-sweet flavor. It can be served on the rocks, or mixed with club soda for a refreshing and uniquely slaking quaffer (not dissimilar from a sangria). It's usually taken as an apertivo (on the rocks with soda), mixed into cocktails (think Negroni), or as a digestivo (served neat). As for food, it pairs well with spicy foods, grilled shortribs, pulled pork, or carnitas tacos and plays exceedingly well with cilantro!
