Traditional cocktail styles re-emerge for spring, waking up your taste buds with fresh new flavour twists.
Fresh flavour twists invigorate traditional cocktails and wake up your taste buds to spring.
Canadians tend to get a little giddy at the first signs of spring. There really is nothing like the promise of those first warm days, especially with a cocktail as fresh as the season in hand. We’ve taken five time-honoured bar classics: fizz, smash, sparkler, flip and nog, and given them new life and a modern, worldly twist. With a focus on freshness, our Creamy Vanilla-Orange Nog is a retelling of the eggnog most of us are familiar with from Christmastime, treated to a makeover with fresh orange juice and vanilla, while our Ginger Gin Fizz is super-refreshing and a little spicy with Thai basil and freshly grated ginger root. These cocktails run the gamut from bright and light to rich and luxurious; there’s one for every type of occasion. Imagine a sunny Sunday brunch with Cider Blackberry Sparklers for everyone; a toast to longer days with a Lemon Smash; or a chilly early spring evening at home with a silky-smooth Mango Flip.
