Drink of the week: Gifted

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Most of the region’s cherry blossoms may have finished blooming for the season, but you can still enjoy a sakura-themed sip at Dachi Vancouver. Gifted, named in honour of the thousands of trees Japan gave to Canada in decades past, is a riff on the classic Aviation cocktail. It calls for original Dutch-style gin, a malted grain-based spirit.

      Dachi Vancouver’s gifted

      45 mL yuzu-and-cherry-infused de Vine Wine & Spirits Genever gin
