Keep the flavours of summer alive with this toned-down take on a classic ’80s cocktail, named after Richmond’s Sea Island — home to the Vancouver International Airport. While the original version typically uses all varieties of spirits, super sweet syrups, soda, and the whole kitchen sink, this low-key interpretation embodies guilt-free fun.
