"This week we'll be featuring an little-known drink from the 60's called the Moonwalk. This drink hcan be attributed to Neil Armstrong, who strolled around the Moon 45 years ago on July 20th 1969 while the rest of the world watched in awe. Also watching was Joe Gilmore, one of the most famous bartenders of his time, who worked for 36 years at the legendary American Bar of the Savoy, in London. The American Bar had a long tradition of crafting cocktails for special occasions such as royal weddings or foreign visitors, and it only made sense for Gilmore to craft something for this historical event. Story goes that Joe Gilmore managed to get his recipe to President Nixon, and Nixon made sure the Moonwalk was the first thing the three Apollo 11 astronauts toasted with a few days later upon their return.
The drink itself is simple but delicious and festive: It starts with a mix of Grand Marnier and grapefruit juice, sprinkled with rose water and topped up with Champagne. The result is refreshing, a bit floral and citrusy, and showcases Gilmore's classic approach and his penchant for French liqueurs." - Martin Corriveau, OPUS Bar Mixologist
Freshest of flavours, seasonal ingredients and imaginative mixes – Martin Corriveau takes a spirited approach to cocktails.
His focus is on handcrafted ingredients this season: from brandied organic Montmorency sour cherries from the Fraser Valley to a deconstructed housemade gin and tonic. Warming spirit-forward cocktails make the most of seasonal produce, including Okanagan apples and peaches, and Italian-influenced ingredients appear in drinks such as a shandy that showcases a locally-made cider.
