Mission – Hand Crafted Spirits TSN1410 with Joe Leary

Hand Crafted Spirits Radio Show Checks Out Barteneder Marc Smolenski at Mission in Kitsilano

We’re doing some radio again thanks to Joe Leary and TSN1410 on a new show called Hand Crafted Spirits. My segment will involve checking in with a local craft-spirit using bartender along with Joe to find out what’s been shaken and poured in our favourite spots.

Hand Crafted Spirits

The first week we visited Marc Smolenski at Mission Restaurant in Kitsilano, a spot Michael and I recently headed to for date night. Smolenski’s cocktails were so great that night, we had him choose a few more seasonal drinks for this segment and he whipped up a blueberry-based and raspberry-based drinks made with Sid’s Vodka. Such well-balanced drinks with just the right amount of boozy-ness to fruit. I preferred the Blueberry and Joe the Raspberry-version; that worked out well!
