COQTAIL OF THE MONTH – PRIDE EDITION

COQTAIL OF THE MONTH – PRIDE EDITION

Raise a glass and raise funds for the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation!

It’s Coqtail Time!

Usually, we introduce you to yet another fabulous libation from Vancouver’s finest restaurants and watering holes on the last Friday of the month. But with Pride around the corner, and the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation‘s inaugural Pride Crawl Fundraiser starting next Friday*, we thought we’d shake things up (see what we did there?) and present a different cocktail each Friday in July leading up to Pride.

For week two in our series, we’re checking in with Dylan Williams of H2 Rotisserie & Bar, whose creation, Divine, is an hommage to Harris Glenn Milstead, better known as the famous drag queen Divine. It is a combination of three notorious tiki drinks Blue Hawaii, Hurricane and Pina Colada — all combining to form an outrageous performance similar to Divine’s body of work.

1/4 oz Bols Blue
3 Pineapple leaves
pineapple & cherry flag for garnish

Pina Colada Foam

2 oz of Fassionola Syrup
1.5 oz of lemon juice
1 full dash of Ms. Better’s Pineapple Anise Bitters

DIRECTIONS:

Garnish with 3 Pineapple leaves, pineapple & cherry flag and a brightly coloured straw
