Get Ready For Easter

“There’s no denying that winter [has] come to an end …” says Kristin Newbigging, Account Coordinator of Skyy Vodka. “Whether you’re celebrating Easter or hosting your first patio party, here are some fresh new recipes to brighten up your next cocktail hour!”

In many parts of Canada, this winter was the one that wasn’t. As much as I enjoy lacing up the skates, I’m not complaining about the mild weather we’ve been having. Seriously, there is something truly wonderful about being able to don shorts and tees and sip something cool on the patio in the middle of March. But, the lack of snow and cold is no reason why we shouldn’t celebrate the fact that spring has officially arrived. That little detail just adds to the anticipation. The days will be getting progressively warmer now until there’s nothing to do but lay on the beach and soak up some rays. Before then, however, we have some celebrating to do. Beginning today, Tidings will feature three inspired cocktails that will have you looking forward to your Easter get-togethers.

There’s one for each day of the upcoming long weekend!

Skyy Spring Fling

1.5 oz. Skyy Vodka
.5 oz Passionfruit Liqueur
.25 oz. simple syrup
Juice of half a lemon
Star fruit
Sparkling wine

Muddle a star fruit in shaker. Add remaining ingredients, expect sparkling wine, and shake to combine. Strain into a champagne flute. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with a slice of star fruit.
