Day 165 – June 14

National Bourbon Day! 

As wonderful as it would be to head down to Bourbon Street, New Orleans, I settled for the 83rd best bar in the world, Keefer Bar in Chinatown, Vancouver

Their drinks involve exotic ingredients and the use of blowtorches.

I planned on heading out for a basic Old Fashioned, in honour of the day, but upon viewing their cocktail list, there were several bourbon based drinks to choose from

Christina started with the Chinatown Sour-Wild Turkey Bourbon 101, Fernet Branca, lemon juice, astragalus/ orgeat syrup (right)

Steph had the Opium Sour- Wild Turkey Bourbon, Grapefruit, lemon, tamarind, poppyseed tincture (left)

And I sort of stuck to my guns and had a slight variation on an Old Fashioned and had a Bold Fashioned- Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon, coconut gomme, house bitters (front centre)

They were so damn good, the service was great as was the company

If you are ever in the area I highly recommend checking this place out !
