A Wonderful Meal - - With Sortilege

My friends Jack and Steve and Portia put on a grand dinner last night for seven folks. Our friends, Richard and Karen (no, their name isn’t Carpenter) brought lots of tasty treats to eat beforehand.

Karen also supplied the appetizer which consisted of mini-crab cakes on a salad of greens with a sesame dressing. To. Die. For.

She also make crème brulée for dessert, and who doesn’t like crème brulée?

Jack and Steve made an incredible, juicy roast pork with rosemary, a mushroom risotto and fresh asparagus with a lemon-thyme vinaigrette.

Whose two really know how to put on a spread. (Thanks guys!)

Of course, the infamous Sortilege liqueur was served with dessert. Most of the guests had never tasted it, so they were duly wowed by it. Sortilege is the difficult-to-obtain liqueur from Canada that’s a blend of Canadian whiskey and maple syrup liqueur.

I recently tried to place another order of Sortilege with the place I’d found online last time, but they no longer carried it!


However, I found another place that had it at almost half the price, only $11.99 a bottle.

My order should be here by the end of the week.

Anyway, I wrote a song about Sortilege.
It's sung to the tune of O Canada.

First, here are the words to O Canada:

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

And then here are my words to O Sortilege:

O Sortilege!
We drink a toast to thee.
Sipping liqueur imbued with maple trees.
With glowing hearts, O Canada
With each glass we partake;
We Americans do love thee more
The elixir our neighbors make!
O Canada, free up your stores
With Sortilege upon our nation’s shores;
With Sortilege upon our nation’s shores!

Isn't that clever?
