Our wine expert, Cathy Choi, is available for wine tastings for groups of all sizes. The cost starts at $25 per person. This is the perfect addition to any spa party.
Door prizes, demonstrations and treats... oh my.
But there was something different this year... we were so impressed by the women from the Bissell Centre last winter that we wanted to do more to help. So this year we're helping to raise money for a great program designed to help women in need at the Centre.
Although Studio J officially moved into our new digs on January 22, 2008, it took some time to prepare for a great event. Guests enjoyed refreshments, snacks... and marvelous prizes -- including a spa day for two, dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House and a night at The Union Bank Inn.
#9 - Studio J's Signature Martini
I designed this martini with the help of tasters - Brian & Ida Kaliel and Mark Kandborg. I had 10 martinis lined up for tasting and # 9 was the winner.
1 1/2 oz. cherry brandy (#9 was made with the brandy that the cherries
soaked in for my mothers famous chocolate dipped cherries)
1/2 oz. soho
1 oz. pomegranate & black currant juice
splash of lemon
Stir or shake with ice, and I personally like to garnish with a pitted lychee.
*Just a note*
On the evening of the Grand Opening, it was premixed in large quantity and there was a tiny bit of sparkling water added to the glass (not shaken).
Also, you can replace the cherry brandy with 1 oz. of raspberry vodka for another option. Also really, really good!
