The hunt for patio furniture in the basement begins.
The first backyard BBQ with friends is planned …

“The emergence of spring is a coveted time for Canadians across the country, ” said Rich Fortin, Marketing Manager for Jackson-Triggs. “It’s a ritual that we can all identify with and to celebrate this moment, Chef Tim Mackiddie brought the garden to the vineyard to mix the refreshing and crisp tasting notes of our white and rosé wines with our favourite springtime flavours.” The four cocktails – The Grigio Waltz, The Vidal Elixir, The Springtime Sauvjito and The Rosé Violette (coming up over the next couple of days) – each contain a base of white or rosé wine, a scoop of fresh fruit, and are garnished with either fresh garden herbs or edible flowers.


The Vidal Elixir

4-6 oz Jackson-Triggs Vidal
2 inches chopped lemongrass
3 leaves basil
fresh grated ginger
1 tbsp simple syrup

Muddle lemongrass, basil, and ginger in a martini shaker. Add simple syrup and Jackson-Triggs Vidal. Shake and strain liquid into a mason jar or cocktail glass. Garnish with a sprig of lemongrass as a stir stick. Top with soda and serve chilled.



Looking at the small things that make life great and the people who create them.
