Cocktail Of The Day (because it’s always cocktail hour somewhere in the world). This week we are doing a special edition #COTD. Extraordinary bartenders making extraordinary cocktails calls for extraordinary measures. Next week is the Belvedere Challenge Global Finals in London. Vancouver’s very own Sabrine Dhaliwal of West Restaurant will be heading to the competition as the only Canadian in the finals.
In mid-May, Dhaliwal took New York by storm as she faced 11 other competitors in the national finals. She will be the only female competing in London as she faces 8 other competitors from around the world. I thought of no better way to support our local lady than to share her incredible winning recipes. First up is Departed Dispositions- an ode to some of the most notorious women of the James Bond legacy in the form of a cocktail.
45ml Belvedere Vodka
15 ml Dry Curacao
30 ml Lemon Juice
15 ml Giffard Fig Syrup
1 dash of Orgeat
Shake all ingredients over ice. Strain into an absinthe rinsed coupe. Garnish with a lemon twist.
