Sip, and Sail Away to the Mediterranean This Summer with Braidwood Tavern’s “Tales of the Med” Cocktail Menu at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler

July 9, 2024,
Whistler, Canada

This summer, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler is whisking guests away to the vast Mediterranean with Tales of the Med, Braidwood Tavern’s newest cocktail menu, where they may explore and celebrate the joie de vivre of summer in the alpine. The culture of each unique destination has been captured, shaken, and stirred to create a storied beverage presenting an homage to art, history, and the rich tapestry of flavour that each region proudly puts forth.

Nestled in the southeast corner of France, the French Riviera – otherwise known as the Côte d’Azur – is a kaleidoscope of charm, cerulean and natural splendour. In an ode to its namesake, French Riviera is a drink that stands to capture this beauty. Roku Gin is infused with the delicately floral lavender, combined with a touch of the fresh and exquisite St-Germain and a fragrant Mediterranean Tonic. This tribute is adorned with lavender, lemon, and rosemary, adding a tantalizing flourish to flavour.

Much like the serene and shallow waters that mark the coastline, the Costa Dorada Sangria induces a notion of light hearted laughter, luxury and leisurely living. Brugal Añejo Rum packs a delightful punch, balanced with sherry and white wine. Pineapple, lemon and orange add the fruity sweetness that distinguishes sangria, while saffron, orange blossom water and cardamom bring out the warm spices of summer.

Iconic, and known for its storied crossroads of history and empires, Italy is a place where beauty, opportunity and whimsy meet. A timeless classic has been reimagined with the Tiramisu Espresso Martini, weaving sweet and soulful notes of coffee in with vanilla and ladyfinger-infused Montis North Vodka, alongside Kahlua and Galliano. It’s topped with mascarpone foam for an extra decadent creaminess, because who doesn’t want to sip on the sweetness this season?

Ciao, Cherry offers a concise reflection of everything Italian, encapsulating fashion and flavour in this charming concoction. Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur is coupled with Sipsmith Gin (infused with ginger and basil) to create a deluxe, delicious drink. Green Chartreuse refreshes the palate, finished with a touch of lime and a cherry garnish – now that’s amore!

If a picture paints a thousand words, Princess of Monaco captures it in one seductive sip. Sparkling like a diamond, this cocktail consists of Maker’s Mark 46 and Calvados, creating a regally bold, yet surprisingly smooth flavour. Standing tall and proud, the drink showcases the sweetness of summer with lemon, honey (produced onsite), and Peach & Clove Bitters, topped with gold flakes and prosecco to charm all recipients.

Bathed in year-round sunshine, the islands of Greece are known for their crystal-clear waters and quaint, captivating beauty. Blue Santorini brings this turquoise paradise to palate, as passion fruit puree is combined with Tres Generaciones Blanco Tequila, honey and sea salt foam, promising an unforgettable indulgence.
