If you think you have to escape the city for the ultimate summer BBQ experience, think again.
We’re hooking you up with the liveliest BBQ event of the summer on Thursday, June 11th at the Notable Lounge, showcasing fresh-brewed, all-natural Pure Leaf Tea.
And similar to Pure Leaf’s tea leaves, picked at their peak, we’ve selected the city’s most innovative mixologist and chef to join us for this experience. Together they’ve crafted five bold cocktails and appetizers to pair with each of Pure Leaf’s flavours (unsweetened, lemon, raspberry, peach and green tea with honey).
One of the five flavours you’ll be sipping on is Pure Leaf’s unsweetened, a cool, refreshing tea that goes naturally with fresh herbs and sweet fruit. Here’s a little taste of what our guests of honour have prepared to pair with this flavour.
Distinguished cocktail enthusiast Rob Granicolo – from The Minister Group – has created the Town of Childsbury. Named after the city that calls the Strawberry Chapel home, this cocktail starts with a generous pour of bourbon-infused unsweetened Pure Leaf tea, fresh lemon, sweet strawberry syrup and a dash of mole biters. It’s then finished with a simple basil garnish. This delicate blend is sure to be the cocktail of the season.
Kevin Castonguay, of Toronto’s beloved ProvisionsTO, will serve up his organic Irish salmon sashimi passed canapé, created exclusively to pair with Pure Leaf unsweetened tea. The dish begins with a crispy salmon chicharon, topped with sliced salmon sashimi and garnished with an avocado puree, julienne ginger, sliced chili, cucumber ribbon and cilantro. This refreshing dish aims to pack a big punch in a single bite. Your taste buds will thank you for this one.
And you, well, all you have to do is soak it all in with the finest crowd in the city in an urban oasis that’ll feel like a night spent dockside in Muskoka.
Did we mention we also want to throw you and your friends your own outdoor BBQ party featuring all of the above? All you have to do is share your best BBQ moment on any social media platform with the hashtag #pureleafsummerbbq for a chance to win.
