Bambudda in Gastown will be featuring a selection of canapes and cocktails to celebrate the Year of the Horse Chinese New Year Jan 31 to Feb. 9. I had an opportunity to taste some of the delicious eats and drinks last week at this newish hot spot in Gastown that offers a modern take on traditional Cantonese cuisine, and an intriguing cocktail selection.
The restaurant will be offering a selection of cocktails specially created for this celebration. The cocktails include the Last Dynasty made with Havana three-year-old rum, Lillet Rouge, sherry vinegar date puree, house-spiced grenadine, Angostura and egg white; Dragonʼs Descendant made with Birds eye chili-infused Aperol, black pepper infused Triple Sec, gin and lemon; and the Red Packet which I tried and loved, made with burned cassia bark ember infused tequila, Dubonnet, crème de cacao, and orange bitters.
