Jolly Coktails

Recipes by Hopson Grace

Behind every great craft cocktail is a balancing act. Success requires the right tension between alcoholic strength, flavours —sweet, sour, bitter, salt — temperature and texture. Choosing the right component can make or break a cocktail, so opting for high-quality ingredients is critical. When Doug Blendell couldn't find them for his mixed drinks, he decided to take matters into his own hands. With a background in distilling, the Hamilton-born entrepreneur founded Jolly Cut cocktail syrups. Made in Prince Edward County with foraged and organic ingredients, each flavour has been vetted by bartenders. With the ethos that simple and fresh is always best, we present four crafty cocktails —one for each syrup — and an opportunity for you to be a cocktail star.
