VANCOUVER SPECIALS: Robyn Gray Of The Hotel Georgia Makes Us “The Jazz Singer”

by David Greig | Welcome to the second sipper in the Scout series we call Vancouver Specials, wherein we take a close look at original cocktails of note that have been homegrown by our better bartenders.

“The Jazz Singer” | by Robyn Gray | 1927 Bar | Rosewood Hotel Georgia

10ml Plymouth Gin
15ml Lemon Juice
10ml Simple Syrup
5ml Maraschino Liqueur
5 Black Cherries
100ml Prosecco

Muddle 4 cherries and add the rest of ingredients except Prosecco
Shake hard and strain into a champagne flute
Top with Prosecco
Garnish with a cherry on the rim

The Deal

Inspiration? This drink takes its name from the very first movie to have an audio track, The Jazz Singer, released in the same year as the original opening of the Hotel Georgia, 1927. Where and when would you drink this? At the 1927 bar, as would be appropriate. Maybe at dusk, to the strains of a finely played saxophone. And with what? A dozen locally grown Ocean Wise oysters. Elegance and simplicity combined.
