Saskatoon Sling (wasn’t that a party…)

As most of you know, we are currently showing Fake Plastic Trees, a photography and mixed media exhibit that is a part of the Capture Photography Festival… and last night we celebrated the artist and her work with an opening party.

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the artist… together you made an irresistible chemistry in the room, and the mood was fabulous.  Laughing people, sparkling conversation, good friends – what else could one ask for on a warm Friday night?

How about a little live music?  A very special thank you to Michale Rene Ertzinger who graciously played jazz trumpet for us to wind down the evening.  If you missed his performance, or would like to hear more of his work, please visit his website and enjoy.

Finally, by popular demand here is the recipe we concocted for our signature cocktail for the evening… the “Saskatoon Sling”:

1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
2 parts cherry liqueur
4 parts gin
8 parts pineapple juice
2 parts Concentrated and cooled Saskatoon berry tea
Soda
Cocktail Umbrella, Swizzle Straw and fruit to garnish

To serve:  Mix lime juice, cherry liqueur, gin and pineapple juice in a pitcher.  Chill.  Pour 1 oz Saskatoon berry tea into bottom of glass.  Add cubed ice.  Pour mixture from pitcher carefully into glass to layer over tea.  Add splash of soda and garnish to taste with fruit.

Where to find Saskatoon Berry Tea in British Columbia?  We found our delicious blend at South Island Saskatoons, in Cobble Hill on Vancouver Island.  They were even kind enough to ship to us!

Thank you again to everyone who came out to help us celebrate this beautiful series and the lovely artist who created it!
