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 three in our series, we’re checking in with Luke Tynan at Juniper, who created the Tro-hop-ical Dream, the perfect beer cocktail for summer sipping with friends old and new.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
1 oz Jameson Irish Whiskey
0.5 oz Freshly Lemon Juice
1 oz Pineapple Cinnamon Butter Purée*

DIRECTIONS:
Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker
Add ice and shake well
Strain into large glass and top with Hazy IPA (or IPA of choice)
Garnish with dehydrated lemon wheel

*How to make pineapple cinnamon butter purée (Prep time: 20 minutes):

8-10 pineapple chunks
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 tbsp of butter
50g of brown sugar

Let simmer for approx. 10 minutes
Add another 75g of brown sugar
