Drinking CalvadosCocktails → CALVA HITS THE ROAD


By Mélissa Coutant-Fraysse, cre­at­or of the cocktail: 

“In these times when dreams are eager for free­dom and escape, every­one finds his or her own way to travel. Mine is gust­at­ory. Here is a sum­mary — or at least a fore­taste — of my jour­ney along­side Calvados. Let’s go through coun­tries and dis­cov­er­ies start­ing from where everything begins for us, Normandy. Then we’ll go towards Andalusia, Morocco, India but also Indone­sia, Japan or Mexico!”
