With the cool weather finally settling in, lights strung up in the trees and the holiday festivities in full swing, it truly feels like the holiday season. The only thing left to do? Kick back and celebrate with a cocktail!
To help you do just that, we scouted our favourite neighbourhood bars to bring you three festive cocktails worth trying this December. Cheers!
Try a… Turkish Martini at FRANCIS
‘Cardamom was an everyday spice for me growing up in Nepal. For centuries across the Middle East, coffee has been made with finely ground coffee, boiling water, sugar and cardamom. Combining something so nostalgic with caffeine in an alcoholic twist seemed the perfect marriage.’
— Niraj, bartender
To make it: Combine ice cubes, cardamom-infused vodka, an espresso shot, coffee liqueur and vanilla syrup. Shake well, then strain the ice and pour. Dust with pistachio powder.
