Juice-forward cocktails with Carissa Campeotto from Black Bamboo
Joe Leary and I taped another episode of my segment, Good Life Vancouver, part of his TSN1410 Hand Crafted Spirits Show, this time with Carissa Campeotto from Black Bamboo, a new pop-up!
Listen to the segment here:
From the release…. The city’s newest pop-up experience, Black Bamboo, is ready to elevate the everyday cold-pressed juice with its cocktail bar at 1219 Granville Street (back alley entrance). Guests can expect to celebrate summer vibes in a tropical-inspired and intimate room, while enjoying music, live entertainment, champagne, and of course, juiced cocktails.
Black Bamboo has partnered with Aperol, Hendricks Gin, and locally-created Bittered Sling Bitters to provide high-quality, small-batch bitters and extracts to the cocktails.
Current cocktail creations include a Pineapple Margarita with fresh pineapple juice, Cazadores Resposado Tequila, Bitter Sling Lem Marrakech Bitters; Grapefruit Cosmo with Campari Aperol, fresh strawberry juice, and bitters; and a Mandarin Gin Drop with Hendricks Gin, fresh mandarin orange juice, and bitters. There will also be speciality punches and champagne service which includes champagne and a tasting of juices.
The Black Bamboo pop-up cocktail bar experience is open now until September 30, 2017, every Friday and Saturday, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Reservations are accepted up to two weeks in advance. www.BlackBambooExperience.com
