LCBO Food & Drink Holiday 2022


Cloud Margarita “Cadillac” is the name for a Margarita made with Grand Marnier instead of ordinary triple sec orange liqueur. Turn it into a Rolls-Royce with special-edition Grand Marnier packed with ultra-aged Cognac, fruit and spice flavours, plus a fine reposado in place of blanco tequila. The result is a luscious cocktail with a rose-gold colour. See p. 246 for a big-batch recipe.

LUXE GARNISHES Dip into the divine candied lemon and orange slices from Canadian brand Sullivan Luxury: the sweet elixir at the bottom of the tub is an upscale sub for agave or simple syrup in Margaritas or Old Fashioneds! The brand also sources the finest amarena (dense and spicy) and maraschino (juicy and sweet) preserved cocktail cherries from Naples. Sullivan Luxury Manhattan & Old Fashioned Bitters are the best we’ve ever tasted!
