Impress, Cocktail in Hand

Jul.13.2015

Missed The Supper Club invite? Host your own evening of delectable bites and elegant drinks. Effortlessly impressing your discerning company will no longer be impossible, with a little help from Tealeaves and The Vancouver Club’s lead bartender, Jonathan Richard.

· An Effortless Plan ·

Find inspiration for your plans with Tory Burch’s dinner party music playing in the background, before looking into magazine-worthy dinner party ideas and jotting down necessary preparations. Send out the memo to your selective guest list and breeze through recipes that can be easily prepared the night before. Well, except for the custom cocktail for The Supper Club by bartender Jonathan Richard– but we don’t think you’ll blame us once you have a sip or two. Or three.

· Menu of the Evening ·

This is the menu to impress, without crinkling shirts or smearing makeup in the preparation process. A theme of fragrant citrus ties together all dishes, from savory shortbread to chocolate tangerine slices. Meanwhile, the Fountain of Youth cocktail refreshes the palate with notes of meyer lemon, pomegranate, and vanilla.
