/ 5 Of The Most Beautiful Wintry Cocktails From Across Canada

“At Botanist in Vancouver, creative cocktail director Grant Sceney and bar manager Jeff Savage concoct four signature drinks inspired by earth, air, water, and fire in the restaurant’s cocktail lab.

The earthy Candy Cap Magic cocktail uses a whiskey infused with rare, locally foraged Candy Cap mushrooms that lend the drink a spiced, caramel flavour.
