You Need to Try the “Rolling Thunder” Cocktail at Nomad on Main Street


In a recent cocktail competition, barman Matt Benevoli of Main Street’s Nomad set out to recreate the experience of a thunderstorm in a glass. The Rolling Thunder comes pretty close. The colour is reminiscent of gathering clouds just before the first drop of rain. With gin, smoked tea-infused sherry, blue curacao, lemon, dill shrub and coriander, the drink is truly unique and achieves the storm-inspired look with no umbrella required. Bonus points for the lemon bolt garnish. (Note that the restaurant’s cocktail card lists a version of it called “Viking’s Thunder” that uses Akvavit instead of gin).

$16 | 3950 Main Street | 604-708-8525 | nomad-vancouver.ca
