If you’re not a booze drinker, Drake bartender Gord Hannah’s pretty, tasty temperance cocktail belongs in your (b)arsenal. Says Gord: “The High Tea blends fresh citrus and sencha kombucha tea with a Canadian-made non-alcoholic gin bursting with juniper notes. The Barbet Light Wave brings all the flavours together and adds notes of lavender, pineapple and cucumber, making a bright and refreshing sipper.”
Made for the modern drinker, Canadian-owned Barbet boasts bold flavour combinations of sparkling water that are adventurous and fun for everyone to enjoy. Try it here in the High Tea, or have it on its own the next time you’re over at The Drake Hotel.
