Drink of the Week – ‘Unusually Yours’ Cocktail from Killjoy

Last Thursday we stopped by the opening party of Yaletown’s newest (and coolest) room, Killjoy. Taking over the previous Beauty Mark space, Killjoy is a cocktail tavern with a unique design, featuring fine local cheese and artisanal cured meats from some of the city’s best butchers. Killjoy is the very first bar in Yaletown to have Vancouver Urban Winery’s “Fresh Taps” program, featuring eight BC red and white wines on tap. Also at the bar, guests will see an expert list of gin-forward cocktails with the perfect mix of classic and original gin sippers.

This week’s Drink of the Week is the ever popular ‘Unusually Yours’ which mixes Hendrick’s Gin, ginger syrup, St. Germain and pear juice, topped with a heavenly cucumber foam and rose spritz. This cocktail can be found on the ‘Legends of Gin’ cocktail list, and is an original recipe from 2009 by Jim Ryan, US Brand Ambassador of Hendrick’s Gin.
