News from Scout supporter Fraîche

West Vancouver, BC | A burgeoning bar scene is bubbling at Fraîche Restaurant in West Vancouver. Head to the hills for inspired cocktails, classic highballs and a carefully selected wine list on the other side of the Lion’s Gate Bridge. Bar manager and North Shore native, Graham Racich is looking forward to sharing his passion for mixing drinks and making guests happy.

A Bachelor of Science degree might well explain Graham’s prowess for killer cocktail chemistry but it’s his creativity, wit and charm that keep Fraîche’s bar buzzing. Fond of the hilltop West Vancouver neighbourhood, Graham enjoys wowing visitors and getting to know the regulars who are usually game to experiment with the mixologist’s new flavours and pairings. When pressed for a favourite drink, Graham picks the Saffron Sun as it features his favourite liquor, Bourbon, and a nice kick of spice from his home made ‘spicy saffron simple syrup.’

Graham also recommends some interesting summer sippers such as the tart and fruity, Ana Kiwi, the bright and refreshing Duke of Earl, the five-alarm, Ice Fire Margarita, or a new take on the apple – Teacher’s Pet*. (Sign up for the Fraîche Restaurant newsletter to get this recipe in the August edition.)

For afternoon meetings, a romantic rendezvous or to catch up with the girls – pair your drinks with some delicious snacks from the new bar menu at Fraîche. Available weekdays from 2:30pm to 5pm, Fraîche is offering a fun and flavourful selection of bites such as Shrimp Bonbons, Goat Cheese Croquettes, West Coast Seafood Snacks and freshly shucked Oysters on the half shell. Hungrier appetites can dig into the Fraîche Beef Burger or linger over the house made Fraîche Charcuterie.
