A Grand Prize from Grand Marnier

Congratulations to The Cascade Room's Dale Styner who yesterday won himself an all expenses paid, 4 day trip to the City of Lights, Paris.

Dale's creation, "Le Grand Ponte" took out the top prize in the Grand Marnier Cocktail Competition, hosted by the Canadian Professional Bartenders Association, beating out some stiff competition from a slew of Vancouver's best known bars.

Not a bad way to start off the working week! Well done Dale.

Euro 2012 - Spain Continues To Reign

Congratulations Spain on Euro 2012 but let's face it, we would've been happier if England had won.

For us the Highlight of Euro 2012 was Spain v Portugal - Nice one Ronaldo. Our friend's over at Pitch Talk summed it up along these lines, "John Terry gate crashes every party, but Ronaldo didn't get there 'til the party's all over".

Drink of the Week - The Cascade Room ‘Hemingway Daiquiri’

From Hawksworth Communications:
This week’s Drink of the Week is a ‘Hemingway Daiquiri’ that we tasted over at The Cascade Room on Main Street. Just a short walk from Broadway, the Cascade Room has become a hip and happening neighbourhood hub. The Cascade Room has an aggressive cocktail program led by Nick Devine who brings experience from San Francisco and London. We were certainly impressed with the cocktail list and decided on the 'Old School Classic' Hemingway Daiquiri, recommended by one of the servers. If you’re ever in the area we definitely recommend checking in at this spot!

The Hemingway Daiquiri is a heavy measure of Cuban white rum shaken with hand pressed lime, fresh ping grapefruit juice and a dash of maraschino liquer.
