Her assignment – define a cocktail culture for the resort’s newly launched Aura restaurant and Cure lounge and patio.Growing up in Victoria, Hailey finished school and immediately began a career in the local restaurant industry. Through working in all aspects of the industry including serving, bartending and managing, she found her stride in fine and funky dining. As a cocktail specialist, she defined her style playing with unique and fresh ingredients and combining them with premium spirits.During her tenures at The Wickaninnish Inn, Café Brio, and Stage to name a few, Hailey has achieved an informal education in premium distillates, craft beer, wine, and traditional liqueurs that has served her well. She has taken inspiration from working with chefs and pastry teams to effectively marry the flavours of everything from fresh herbs to fruit to chocolate with spirits to create a complete beverage culture.Hailey has used her resources wisely and now makes her own bitters, syrups, and infusions, and has stayed true to her playful roots by incorporating interesting themes and garnishes to her cocktails.Burnt Schramm Gin MartiniRinse the inside of a chilled Martini glass with 1/8 oz Lagavulin (or any very peaty single malt)Shake out excess whiskey In a glass shakerCombine: 1oz Schramm Gin ½ oz Martini BiancoAdd ice and stir for 15 secondsStrain into the “burnt” Martini glassGarnish: coriander and cumin compressed cucmbersCreated By: Hailey Pesemko of Nita Lake LodgeCocktailsGold Medal PlatesLibationsWhistler SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Guest Writer We get many people writing guest articles for us, as well as past contributors.
