Sip this Impactful, Smoky-Edged ‘El Milano’ Cocktail at Kitsilano’s AnnaLena


September is here and the heat will fade in the coming weeks but while we’re still enjoying the final days of beach weather, consider heading over the AnnaLena for an El Milano. A combination of tequila, grapefruit, Campari, lime, ginger and Islay scotch makes for one refreshing sipper with a smoky, peaty edge. Fingers crossed this one still stay on the menu well into the Fall months. Extra tip: Order this with a side of the torn bread, an AnnaLena favourite. (It used to only be served with their mussels but was so loved that the team decided to give it its very own spot on the menu. It’s just that good!)

The pretty thing tasted like Summer, so if you want to eat some time travel in an Autumn downpour, hit Torafuku before it's off the menu!

You Need To Try the Refreshing ‘Sunrise Ruby’ Cocktail at Gastown’s Tacofino

This bright, light, quenching sipper is a tequila-based riff on the French 75 -- an elegant, classic cocktail created in the 1920's.
