Ryan Steele Mixes Cocktails

Ryan Steele is a Bartender at 1181 on Davie in Vancouver’s Westend neighborhood, where he has been mixing drinks for the past few years. As I stood at the bar talking with Ryan, I asked him to create a spectacular drink. Ryan said he didn’t have his own signature drink, so he made me a couple of popular drinks which is often ordered at 1181, first off here is the Spa Lady Cocktail.
