In late November, Yaletown hosted it’s 9th annual Candytown – a one-day festival that transforms the neighbourhood into a winter wonderland. For this year’s event, organizers invited local spots to partake in a CandyTown Cocktail Crawl by crafting seasonal sippers created just for the occasion! Davie Street’s Capo and The Spritz hopped on board offering a Manhattan-inspired cocktail with a winter twist.
Inspired by the flavours of apple cider and mulled wine, Bar Manager Jessica Hofmann Lalic created the “Christmas in Manhattan”. While staying true to a rye base, Hofmann brings in notes of all spice, balsamic, apple and lemon, creating a lovely holiday riff on the classic. While Candytown may have come and gone, Christmas in Manhattan remains on the menu and is worth heading to Yaletown to try it for yourself!
