We at Foodietown.ca are so excited to have Harry Dosanj as a contributor! I mean a wine cocktail recipe is so unique. We sipped this while writing! In the Okanagan, Harry has long been apart of the growing food scene. His family owned the popular Poppadoms Indian restaurant before dissolving into various channels headed by the wildly talented Dosanj siblings. Harry is one them. His cocktails, cocktail kits and converted Bucephalus Bar are much beloved in the Okanagan. If you’re looking for cocktails to have at your events, wedding, or maybe have a cocktail class for a group of friends, Harry’s your man! – Murissa, founder of Foodietown.ca.
This particular recipe was created while at an event at West Kelowna’s Grizzli Winery. Harry used Grizzli Merlot in this cocktail recipe to show that wine can be a versatile cocktail ingredient and not just a drink to enhance your dinner. This wine cocktail would be a great showstopper at any holiday party with the festive flavours of orange paired with campari and Merlot, but it could also be a cocktail for a red wine lover in the spring, fall or late nights around a fire.
If you’re looking for recommended barware to enhance your cocktail game then please consider shopping from Harry’s site – BarTravellingMan.com – where you can find everything he uses in the recipe video and so much more. If you want a fully build cocktail and you’re in the Okanagan area you can order one of his expertly curated cocktail kits here.
Born and raised in Southampton, England, somehow he jumped over the pond to Canada in 2008 and unexpectedly, the food and drink thing started with our restaurant Poppadoms Taste India! With over 14 years experience in the food and beverage industry from bartending, serving to bar managing, you know you will be in good hands with your event or special day.
