Event LOVE: #BombayCocktailHour with Bombay Sapphire

Bombay Sapphire recently invited us to experience a Cocktail Hour like no other! Just in time for summer entertaining, the iconic gin took the popular pastime of the Roaring Twenties and re-introduced it to the Twenty-Thirteen with a modern and refreshing twist! Bombay Sapphire Master Mixologist, Raj Nagra and acclaimed Toronto Chef, Cory Vitiello, partnered up to show us how to throw the ultimate “How-To” Cocktail Hour party. Cory demonstrated how to whip up delicious hors d’oeuvres, and Raj followed by giving us a demonstration on how to create the perfect cocktails to pair with Cory’s creations. I’m not a big gin drinker, but Raj definitely changed my mind with those cocktails he created! They were so so good. And the food? Oh my gawd, the food was soooo GOOD! We all had a great time, everybody had a bunch of questions for Raj and Cory, we were all laughing, chatting, sipping cocktails, and devouring the delicious appetizers. It was a good night!

This was mine: A lot of gin, some orange juice, orange zest, muddled raspberries, and topped with club soda! It was yummy.
