Revisit Joey’s, without tomatoes

I had a great time meeting Lisa Kadane, the Calgary Herald's Drinks Columnist, at the sneak peek party for JOEY EAU CLAIRE. Judging from her article this weekend, it sounds as though she loved the space (as well as a couple of new JOEY drinks). Read on here. And if you are looking for a great summer drink, here are recipes for Lisa's picks:

Aperol Spritz 1½ oz Aperol (Italian orange aperitif) 1/2 oz fresh-squeezed orange juice 2 oz Prosecco 1-2 oz soda Fill a large wine glass full with ice. Add the Aperol, orange juice and Prosecco, then top with 1-2 oz of soda. Garnish with orange wheel. Stir before drinking.

Blueberry Mojito 1 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice 1 oz simple syrup 6 mint leaves 1 tbsp(15 mL) fresh blueberries 2 oz Smirnoff blueberry vodka soda In a mixer cup, muddle the lime juice, simple syrup, mint leaves and blueberries. Add vodka, fill the mixer with ice and shake vigorously. Pour contents into a large collins glass. Top with fresh ice, then top with soda. Garnish with a mint leaf.
