The Best Cocktails In Vancouver

July 14, 2012 // Vancouver

Did you know that the #1 reason for married couples to divorce is because they fall out of love? Apparently we are all too busy multitasking that we lose sight of the things that make our heart beat a bit faster.

The flip side to this is to obviously keep on falling in love with your spouse. For me, nothing makes me feel as reconnected with my husband than when we go on a dinner date. I love getting dressed up with purpose and having dinner out, it is one of my favourite things to do with my husband.

Last night we hit up a ‘new-to-us’ spot in Gastown called L’Abbatoir; a very fresh and funky spot with a great cocktail menu. I chose 2 perfectly mixed cocktails to enjoy while we relaxed and talked and giggled. The meal we had following these delicious cocktails was perfect too and we left so satisfied and in love.

Clover Club Refashioned ~ Gin, fresh raspberries, sweet vermouth, mint, fresh lemon

El Camino~ Watermelon-infused tequila, Campari, fresh lime, grapefruit pop, salt

What makes you feel fresh and in love? Do you love going out on dinner dates as much as I do? I’m seriously already looking forward to the next one and very thankful that our babysitter (my sis!) has the summer off from work. It’s the summer of dinner dates I tell you! Which means it’s also the summer of love.
