Created by Jeff Savage, head bartender at the Fairmont Pacific Rim, this cocktail captures all the berry bright, delicately floral flavours of summer. Note that you will need an electronic scale to measure the ingredients for the sherbet.
• 1.5 oz raspberry-infused pisco (see note)
• 0.5 oz Aperol • 1 oz lemon juice • 0.5 oz Grapefruit and Rose Sherbet (see recipe below)
The South American grape brandy offers bartenders so much more than a simple sour
Katie Ingram is a sucker for history. The head bartender of Gastown’s L’Abbatoir is talking pisco, the South American spirit that shows up in sours the world over, and in no time at all, she’s taken us right back to the Ice Age.
