The Globe and Mail has published a recipe from the George Ultra Lounge in Vancouver. Created by Timothy Schofield, bartender at the George, this one strikes me as “don’t try this at home” kind of a cocktail, what with the bee pollen and all (it’s not everyday that I say to my wife, “honey, can you pass the bee pollen please?”). This looks a trifle weird to me, but next time I’m there, by George I think I’ll try on of these, whatever they’re called.
1 1/2 ounces Woodford Reserve bourbon
1/2 ounce Navan natural-vanilla liqueur
1 Stoney Paradise or other organic plum
1 squeeze fresh lemon juice
Plum fan and honey stick rolled in toasted bee pollen for garnish
