Cocktails for Inglewood at The Nash and The Offcut Bar

>> Friday, June 30, 2017


Canada is celebrating 150 years and what better way to celebrate than to give back to the community, which is what The Nash and The Offcut Bar is doing. They are giving back to Inglewood. Together with other establishments in the neighbourhood they are creating delicious ‘Cocktails for Inglewood’. An event that runs all summer long where a portion of the proceeds go towards The Alex Youth Health Center.

Each of the cocktails are featured for a certain number of weeks throughout the summer with a possibility of returning at a later date. I was lucky enough to get to sample each of the cocktails and here is a quick summery of each. The first two cocktails unfortunately are no longer featured but here’s hoping that they bring them back since Cold Garden’s Caribbean Cake Affair was one of my favorites.


ESPY Experience – Afternoon Tea Light
June 1 – June 14
Featuring Bulleit bourbon, assam tea syrup, ango stura bitters and topped with a sprig of mint. This one is for the bourbon lovers. A good strong kick, the perfect aperitif to get those taste buds going.


Cold Garden – Caribbean Cake Affair
June 15 – June 28
Made with Cruzan spiced rum, pineapple juice, lemon juice, vanilla syrup, egg white, topped with Cakeface beer. This one was my favorite of the bunch (even though it was hard to choose). It was hard to imagine what it would taste like after reading the ingredients but this cocktail was perfectly well balanced and super refreshing. Fingers crossed that they bring this one back again and again!


The Livery Shop – Barn Burner
June 29 – July 12
The mixture of mezcal and tequila are the star here along with lime juice, cranberry juice, cherry syrup, juniper bitters and finished with absinthe wash. You can definitely can taste the smokiness of the mezcal as it lingers on the palate. This one would work great with a hearty meal!


Rosso – Cold Fashioned
July 13 – July 26
Featuring Jim bean, rosso coffee bean infused syrup, rosso cold brew coffee, walnut bitters and topped with a cherry garnish. I enjoyed the subtle hint of coffee and it felt like drinking a sophisticated iced brew. It would work great even as a disgestif after dinner along with some delicious dessert.


Kent of Inglewood – Rose of 1867
July 27 – August 10
Made with Dark horse, Dolin sweet vermouth, Benedictine, ginger rose tonic, rose water and garnished with an orange peel, this drink what I think a manhattan and an old fashioned would taste like when combined together. This cocktail is perfect for those who enjoy theirs not overly too sweet but still with a nice well rounded flavour profile.


Plant – Coniferous Zingibeer
August 11 – August 24
The combination of Ginger spruce beer, Plymouth gin, lime juice, herbal syrup and alpino amaro, topped with ginger spruce beer and a rosemary sprig was interesting to say the least. I was curious whether it might be sweet due to the ginger beer but that was definitely not the case. Instead it was earthy and fizzy with lots of kick!

Although Canada day celebrations will be at the peak this long weekend. Don’t forget that you can continue to celebrate all summer long at the Nash with their amazing cocktails that support the community which is a celebration in itself!
