The Goods from Pourhouse
Vancouver, BC | The countdown is on to the new year, and Kitchen Table Restaurants acclaimed Pourhouse is getting into the spirit with a playful 12 Days of Cocktails offering. Toast to the last days of 2022 with daily themed drinks inspired by the classic carol, with the last day landing – fittingly – on New Year’s Eve.
Hailed as one of Canada’s Best Bars of 2022, Gastown’s Pourhouse is the perfect spot for those in search of a little holiday revelry. Sip and savour the season with libations concocted by the creative and innovative Pourhouse team, who will debut a new festive cocktail every day from December 17 – 31.
Just like the song, Pourhouse’s 12 Days of Cocktails begins with a Partridge in a Pear Tree (Cointreau, Sotol, lemon, dash chocolate bitters, orange twist & cherry), and they’ll be pouring clever creations all the way through to those dozen Drummers Drumming (Aberfeldy 12, Amaro Montenegro, Lonetree Cider). Bring your true love, your best pals, or treat yourself. The full roster awaits you at Pourhouse:
