If you’re looking for a great drink to accompany your meal, or your trip through YVR has cause for celebration, here are 5 unique drinks to try next time you’re at the airport. Keep in mind, cocktails can also be made non-alcoholic on request if you prefer something less boozy (with the exception of the beer and wine)!
Fireside – Jetside Bar
Available starting November 1st, this tangy new cocktail by the Fairmont Vancouver Airport hotel will feature Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum, Averna, simple syrup, rhubarb bitters, black walnut bitters, fernet, and flamed orange zest. While you’re there, take time to taste their delicious West Coast inspired food offerings! Find out more about the Fairmont Vancouver Airport here.
