Cocktail: Mistaken Movie Quotes | Bartender: Dylan Brentwood

This was my submission for Hali.Team ‘s Campari Bitter Brawl, a first, exclusive Halifax cocktail comp!!! This drink is inspired by memories of seeing movies with my family and the legend of Cola Slushies at the Theatre. I swear the machine at the theatre in St. John’s was broken from 1999 until they got rid of it. It was my dad’s favourite drink. I built this drink on a base of Averna for it’s beautiful cola like qualities, trying to stretch and play with flavours that reminded me of of those slushies. I will remember those movies forever – being obsessed with the big screen and cartoons that I saw as a kid with my cola slushie, my popcorn and my dad – Toy Story, Lion King, the Star Wars Re-release, (and prequels.) This drink is about looking back on those times throughs the blur of youth. Thanks for the memories.
