Classic Cocktails Are Revisited Thanks To Angus Winchester

November 20, 2017


I visited one of my favourites hotel in Montreal earlier this month, InterContinental Montreal, to learn about [and sample!] the new line of Wordly Classics. This program in partnership with mixologist Angus Winchester offers a playful twist on cocktails that have become staples around the world. I loved how creative Angus got by mixing different countries and flavours together. He is one hell of a bartender, including being quite attentive and entertaining!

The list includes a play on the following cocktails:

  • Brazilian Smash
  • French Moto
  • Hong Kong Mule
  • Indonesian Ne Fashioned
  • American Dutchman
  • Argentine Libre
  • Australian Daisy
  • British Bellringer
  • Mandarin Imperial
  • Mexican Fire & Ice
  • Watermelon Julep

The most impressive cocktail was the Mexican Fire & Ice, which left an unbelievable smell in the room following a performance with fire!

I don’t want to spoil the surprise on what they might taste like on the new menu so if you’re serious about cocktails, make sure to check out Sarah B at our beautiful InterContinental here in Montreal or any hotel from the chain here.
