Food & Wine | Sipping on Spring Cocktails with some of our favourites

Despite what has been a lackluster start to spring weather, it’s time to start thinking about warmer nights ahead and sipping cocktails with friends. As the days get longer and our social calendars begin to fill, it’s time to get excited for entertaining! Our friends at Moët Hennessy have come up with some spring cocktails to keep you and your guests entertained, and I’ve even created one of my very own to help you all get excited with us.

In my opinion, one of the best parts of Spring is heading to my local LCBO (for those of you across the country, your local liquor store will also work) to stock up for cocktail ingredients. Just like a full fridge after a grocery shopping run, seeing a fully stocked bar always brings a smile to my face.

Some of our personal must haves to keep stocked include Belvedere, Chandon & Hennessy VS or VSOP. Having products of this caliber and flavour profile can help to create a memorable cocktail that will wow your guests or offer a great option for a host gift when attending a get together.

Of the cocktail recipes I had a chance to try out, here are a few of my personal favourites!

And of course, it wouldn’t be a feature without a #DoTheDaniel cocktail. Take a look at my recipe below which was inspired by fresh ingredients and flavours:


A cocktail can truly set the tone for an event, an evening or a romantic night in. These recipes can help you to embrace the spring & create an occasion that you won’t soon forget.
