Food | Hendrick’s Gin is Home For The Holidays

As the hustle and bustle of the holiday season settles in the next few weeks, we forget to be carried away by the whimsy and joy of the season; we get so wrapped up in unwrapping those presents that we forget what this season is meant to be. Thankfully, Hendrick’s Gin has decided to remind us all what the holiday’s are supposed to be.

Starting on December 9th in major cities across the country, Hendrick’s Gin is decking the halls in Victorian Holiday spirit. For those Torontonians wondering what that means, keep your eyes open for streetcars wrapped in Victorian themed decor on a total of eleven lines around the city. The 501 Queen & 504 King routes will get extra attention with their double-length trams dressed up to “delight and inspire the downtown core.”

But my favourite transformation are the select elevators in the city core being transformed into scenic Hendrick’s Gin hot air balloon rides. Imagine how whimsical a dull grey elevator will feel as you step in a realize for just that one minute, you’re amid a world free of the chaos and craziness. The elevators “will be attired in Hendrick’s inspired décor, giving riders the impression of a Jules Verne-esque hot air balloon ride to the heights of the city.”

Hendrick’s Gin Toronto elevators can be found at:

1 Richmond Street

55 York Street

Dynamic Funds Tower (parking elevator), 1 Adelaide Street East

Metro Centre II, 225 King Street West

Last but not least, head on over for a smooch at the Hendrick’s Gin Mistletoe Kissing Booth at the Lowe’s Toronto Christmas Market. From November 29th to December 15th, Hendrick’s has an old time kissing booth & Hot Gin Punch tasting. For times and location, click here; a beautiful Christmas Market and a beautiful drink? Done and done.

Hendrick’s has a much needed holiday cocktail and my personal recommendation is the The Hendrick’s signature Hot Gin Punch. Find the recipe below to give this cocktail a try for yourself!
