By this point in isolation, you should be getting good at this. That’s why we’re upping the difficulty level this week with the cocktail supplied by bartender Grant Sceney. The drink adds a few extra elements and seasonal ingredients — and comes with a healthy dose of good news from Moet Hennessy.
The drink is part of Moet Hennessy’s #ComeTogether program, which launched this week in support of the hospitality industry in Canada. The Maison Hennessy is donating $50,000 to the Bartenders Benevolent Fund, which will help keep the men and women who make your drinks afloat during this time. The initiative includes Instagram Live cocktail sessions, restaurant and catering partnerships, and The Coming Together Project — a book of cocktail recipes prepared by Canada’s top 50 mixologists, and where today’s recipe can be found.
Grant Sceney oversees the cocktail program at The Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver. Originally from Australia, Sceney has made a name for himself in the Canadian cocktail community over the past 10 years, and the bars he tends — including the lobby lounge and Botanist — have received multiple awards and global recognition.
His cocktail is called Brighter Skies, and it’s every bit as uplifting as the name suggests — the perfect end to another week at home. Here’s how to make it.
