COQTAIL OF THE MONTH – PRIDE EDITION

COQTAIL OF THE MONTH – PRIDE EDITION

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.

We’re kicking things off with Boulevard‘s flamboyant ROYGBIV (pictured). Created by master bartender Shaun Layton, this punch-like beverage is a salute to the Pride flag made with Jamaican Rum, Fresh OJ, Ancho ReYes Verde, Green strawberry bitters, Blue Curacao, Coconut Milk and Vanilla.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
1 1/2 oz Appleton VX rum
1/3 oz. Ancho Reyes Verde liqueur
1/3 oz. fresh orange juice
1/3 oz. Blue Curacao
3/4 oz Coconut milk
1/2 barspoon Vanilla syrup
4 dashes Ms. Betters Green Strawberry bitters

DIRECTIONS:
Shake all ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker
Strain over crushed ice into a pilsner glass
Garnish with fresh mint and 2 pride flags

Price
$15 with $5 going to Pr. Peter AIDS Foundation.
