The Professor Suzuki Cocktail: Thyme-Infused Vodka, Sea Buckthorn and Cranberry Liqueur

Dec 19 2017, 11:24 am

In honour of Vancouver’s own David Suzuki, I’ve created a very earth-friendly cocktail — all ingredients, with the exception of the lime juice, are from British Columbia. This refreshing drink is perfect for a summer afternoon spent on a patio, with a scenic view of the Pacific Ocean and the North Shore mountains as your backdrop.
