News from Scout supporter The Corner Suite Bistro De Luxe
Vancouver, BC | The Corner Suite’s “Genuine Article” – a 30-page homage to some of the world’s oldest and most iconic drinks – is Vancouver’s (if not Canada’s) largest and most comprehensive cocktail list … and it just got bigger. Meyer lemons are in season, and owner/bartender Steve Da Cruz likes them, a lot. In honour of his favourite fruit, Steve has added a page to his list that showcases Meyer lemons in six variations…
Lucien Gaudin (1928)
Gin, Noilly Prat, Cointreau, Campari, Meyer Lemon Twist, Up
In the 1928 Olympics, Gaudin took Gold in both foil & épée. Also medaled in 20 & 24 – no big deal.
The Japanese (1862)
Cognac, Orgeat, Boker’s Bitters, Meyer Lemon Twist, Up
The first namesake cocktail ever. Tateishi Onojirou Noriyuku – famous ladies’ man.
Amaretto Royal Sour (2008)
Disaronno Amaretto, Meyer Lemon, Whole Egg, Short
“This drink is ridiculously good.” – You.
New York Sour (1894)
Wiser’s De Luxe Rye, Meyer Lemon, Sugar, Griottine, Red Wine Float, Short
Traditionally topped with Claret, this is one gorgeous red head.
The Bee’s Knees (1950)
Gin, Meyer Lemon, Honey, Up
Essentially, a Gin Sour, but with Meyer lemons. It’s the Clam’s Elbows.
Joe Collins (1970)
Vodka, Meyer Lemon, Sugar, Soda, Tall
Nothin’ ordinary about it. Think Tom’s silent little brother, who’s a killer.
The feature cocktails will be available from Wednesday, December 8th until the Meyer lemons are gone.
