Hi.

We are two best friends documenting their adventures in travel, food, style and design while based in St.John's, Newfoundland.

Holiday Cocktail Guide

Holiday Cocktail Guide

The season of holiday parties and hosting is here! Of course, we all know the key to a good celebration at Christmas is to have the perfect cocktail on hand. Our keys to the perfect cocktail are having the right glass for the job, a refreshing yet bold taste, and festive visual appeal. The locally owned Third Place Cocktail Co. produces delicious products that can give your holiday cocktails the extra oomph and flavour you're looking for.

Launched in 2015, Third Place Cocktail Co. is the producer of a selection of small batch tonics and handmade mixes that pair with your favourite gin, whiskey, vodka and beer. Not to mention, their clean and sophisticated branding is an ideal and good-looking addition to your bar for the holidays.

We partnered up with Third Place Cocktail Co. to put together a few holiday cocktail recipes that are sure to look great and impress your guests - or, just to spoil yourself on a cozy night in!

TONIC & GIN

Tonic is the inaugural product from this great local company and we have to say it's delicious! Mixed with The Botanist Gin, soda water and styled with fresh lemons and rosemary, this cocktail has a light and delicate flavour that's enjoyable to all palates. If you prefer something sweet, try pairing with a lemon-flavoured soda water instead of plain.

GINGER ROSE & GIN

Being that visual appeal is crucial for creating a crowd-pleasing cocktail, we were very excited to try out Ginger Rose. It's red colour is ideal for making a holiday-inspired drink. Layered with The Botanist Gin and soda water it creates a gorgeous ombre of colour and taste. The flavour of Ginger Rose is more robust and fragrant, typically pairing nice with whiskey, but being gin-lovers we liked the pared down mix of it with the gin.

ELDERFLOWER & VODKA

Paired with Iceberg Vodka and soda water, Elderflower from Third Place Cocktail Co. creates a delicate yet complex tasting cocktail. We chose to dress up this drink with slices of clementine and pomegranate seeds for an extra festive appeal.

GINGER ROSE & WHISKEY

For our final cocktail recipe, we chose to do a heartier mix - one that's perfect for New Year's and bidding farewell to 2017 with a nice, stiff sip! We mixed Ginger Rose with soda water and Gibson's Whiskey, garnished with an orange slice and a skewer of cranberries for a strong, masculine look.

We loved tasting all of these products from Third Place Cocktail Co., and look forward to trying out the rest of them like their Radler and new Shrubs. Their gorgeous packaging makes these tasty bottles a really cute gift! On top of all this, they also have a line of cute tees that are super soft and comfortable and adorable Dad Caps.
