Along with a new dinner menu that we showcased the other day, F&B also released a new cocktail menu that is a perfect warm up for a cold, winter day. Here are three of our favourites from the new selections:
The Witchdoctor (2.75 oz.)
The best way to describe this cocktail is the following: Its like walking through a wintery pine forest in your birthday suit without being cold. The invigorating combination of Siberian fir tree essence with honey, cassis, port and gin bonded with cardamom tincture will surely evoke feelings of being a Norse medicine man or woman. Very different, in every good way possible. Siberian Fir Honey Syrup, Bombay Sapphire, Lemon Juice, Cardamom Tincture, Cassis, Taylor Fladgate late bottle port
Tea Punch (2 oz.)
Punch cocktails were among the first cocktails ever created. In the 1700’s, bartenders and home entertainers alike would take the relatively unrefined (by today’s standards) spirits like Arrak, rum, or brandy, and blend them with water, sugar, citrus, other spirits like wine or port, and milk. This punch follows that tradition, using milk as a clarifying and softening agent, just as it was used 300 years ago.
The Tea Punch is served with cranberries and mint, and is created using Brugal Anejo Rum, Jasmine Black Tea, Amaro Averna, Cointreau, lemon juice, and demerara sugar. Please note this cocktail is produced ahead of time and sets for 24 hours before it is ready. May contain traces of dairy, even after filtration. Jasmine Black Tea, Turbinado sugar, Amaro Averna, Lemon Juice, Cointreau, Brugal Rum, Mint, lemon, cranberries for garnish.
Archangel (2.25 oz.)
Turmeric, lemon, white pepper, and saffron base this velvet-like cocktail. A beautiful balance of colour, vibrancy, and spice, the Archangel is a true winter cocktail, as it’s highly sip-able and warming. If you seek an angelic experience, look no further. Dillons Gin, Strega, Turmeric Syrup, Lemon juice, Egg White, pinch of white pepper kernels – 3 dashes hibiscus bitters float. Thyme halo.
