As Executive Chef and Assistant Lodge Manager, I strive each season to improve our food and beverage service for guests here at Northern Escape Heli Skiing in British Columbia, Canada. For my third season with Northern Escape, I will step a bit back from “time at the stove” in order to assist in managing lodge logistics and front of house. I look forward to creating new experiences for the 2019 heli ski season, including new Après Ski cocktail recipes!
Moving into bar management, my excitement is in applying my culinary knowledge to create a regional modern cocktail menu for Après Ski and evening lounge enjoyment. Putting into practice the concepts of seasonal flavors, modern (and classic) techniques, plus quality spirits and ingredients, I hope to provide you with all new Après Ski cocktail recipes that all will elevate your Northern Escape heli skiing experience.
This one is on the House…

Peppered Aquavit, Strawberry Cordial, Krumpnik, Gammel Dansk, Rhubarb Bitters
- 1 oz Peppered Aquavit
- .5 oz strawberry cordial

Fill shaker ¾ full with ice, shake vigorously 15 times, strain into coupe glass, then express and garnish this Great Dane drink with lemon twist.
Ask your bartender for this Après Ski cocktail on your next visit…whether it be a fine cocktail, a pint of our local Sherwood Brewery, or a visit to our Shot Ski…did someone say Shot Ski?

Shake over ice, strain and serve in two shot glasses, and share with a friend…preferably a ski buddy!
