The staff at Global Collection are always coming up with special and unique new cocktails. Chris Ballas of Vancouver’s Coast Restaurant came up with Requiem for Summer. Here’s a slightly modified version of his original cocktail. It features a late-harvest wine from the Okanagan’s award-winning Quails Gate Winery.
- 1.5 oz Vodka
- ½ oz 2009 Quails Gate Optima
- ½ oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
- ½ Fig
- Dash of Bitters
- Dash of Simple Syrup
Muddle fruit with lemon juice. Add liquid ingredients. Shake well. Strain over crushed ice into a rock glass rimmed with vanilla sugar (optional).
