The Domaine Pinnacle Ice Cider has many surprises in store for those who love food and pairing food with ciders. It just so happens that in its aromatic profile, we find the same dominant aromatic compounds as in maple, curry, apple, and…marshmallow! Yes, marshmallow and ice cider! Who knew! Once we established this analysis, all we needed to do was to offer you these two heavenly butter recipes. Thought of and created for the enhancement of the cheese course, these butters also simultaneously create strong harmonic links with Domaine Pinnacle Ice Cider. Have fun and serve one of these two butters, or both, with firm cheeses, goat cheese and blue cheese. Divine!
