COCKTAIL OF THE YEAR
The recipe for the Hotel Georgia cocktail first appeared in Ted Saucier’s Bottoms Up circa 1951 and was tweaked by Hawksworth bar manager Brad Stanton for the property’s reopening in 2011. It’s hotel history in a glass, suitably served in a champagne coupe.

  • 1 egg white
  • 1¾ oz Plymouth gin
  • ¾ oz lemon juice
  • ½ oz Giffard orgeat
  • 6 drops orange blossom water
  • Fresh nutmeg

Beginning with the egg white, combine all ingredients in a mixing vessel. Shake mixture briefly (without ice). Add ice and shake vigorously for around 20 seconds. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail glass. Grate a little fresh nutmeg onto the surface of the drink.

Your take on Clive's (trucker hats? Coors? Wha?!?) is so off base that it makes me wonder if you even had someone go to that establishment - and if the reporting on the rest of the bars is just as inaccurate.

I agree with Dea Bee - what's with the review of Clives? I've been there a number of times and it was chic and refined, with business travellers and well-dressed professionals.
Coors Light ad - what does that even mean? Trucker hat? What?

I'm glad that the Keefer Bar and the Tiki Bar at the Waldorf were included. Both are slightly off the beaten path choices for a great cocktail in Vancouver.
