Savour Food and Wine Festival – Imbibe Event

I had to pace myself at the Savour Food and Wine Festival's Imbibe event! So many unique cocktails, designed by Nova Scotia's best mixologists, made for a fun evening. Rich in colour, texture and detail, these custom cocktails were as visually pleasing as they were in taste. There was something for everyone from refreshing and fruity to warm and spicy. It's a fantastic event to try something new.

Sponsored by the NSLC, you can find these spirits at your local liquor store.
