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.
Bombay Gin (2 oz)
Aloe Vera Juice
This drink was shaken and then poured into the glass and topped with a slice of cucumber to garnish.
For the second drink I was interested in seeing some more colour, he knew right away which drink to make, the French Cuff another popular drink at 1181.
Tanqueray gin (2 oz)
Fresh lemon lime
This drink was shaken and then poured into the glass filled with some ice cubes and topped with some cranberries and a slice of cucumber to garnish.
