We’re living through challenging times; we could all go for a cocktail right about now. Four creative mixologists give us four fabulous drinks perfect for raising a glass to 2020 no matter what it brings!
With summers as fleeting as ours, we advise you to get out and stay out! This means working, relaxing, playing, and enjoying your food and drink out of doors –in the backyard, on the deck or on your balcony – all at a safe physical distance, of course. So whether you’re firing up the grill or settling into a good summer read, these talented Watershed country culinarians have the perfect cocktail for celebrating the sun.
The Beamish House, Port Hope
The Beamish Lager & Lemonade
This Port Hope fixture has a new owner in Jessica Dodd, and this will be her first summer at the helm. “I have been coming to the pub since I was a little kid,” says Jessica, “When Garry – the original owner – mentioned retiring I couldn’t let the opportunity pass me by.” Cheers to that!
Makes 1 refreshing cocktail.
½ oz. Triple Sec
½ oz. vodka
6 oz. light lager beer – Jessica uses Sleeman Light draught
3 oz. lemonade – use pink lemonade for a fun twist
Add all ingredients to a tall glass with ice and give it a stir. Garnish with a wedge of lemon or orange.
Stay tuned for more summer cocktails
