      Vij’s has finally settled into its new digs, and to celebrate, bartender Jay Jones has created a signature cocktail that pays homage to the award-winning restaurant’s 19-year stay on 11th Avenue.

      A modern riff on the Moscow Mule, this gin-based cocktail ($12.50) uses Vij’s Bolly Water—a small-batch, London Dry–style gin specially crafted by Okanagan Crush Pad Winery—Italian amaro, citrus juice, locally made ginger ale, and fresh mint.

      Hit the new Vij’s (3106 Cambie Street) for a glass of your own or plan a shindig at the old location, now a private event space (1480 West 11th Avenue), where you can include it in a custom cocktail list.
