Drawing from CURE’s quirky and popular winter Fairytale theme, the refreshed summer list offers nine delicious and quirkily named creative libations with a Riddles theme that focus on seasonal and local British Columbia spirits and produce, including herbs from Nita Lake Lodge’s rooftop garden.
Try a Preserved ($16) with Odd Society oaked gin, basil-infused Martini Blanco Vermouth, strawberry jam, fresh lemon, basil foam and cracked pepper while you ponder: ‘What goes up but never comes down…’ or sip on a Grill Master ($16) with Bulleit Bourbon, liquid hickory, orange vanilla, grapefruit juice, lime and orange bitters, and solve the riddle: ‘Coal in my belly, steel on my feet, when I get hot it’s time to eat!’
“Our team has had so much fun with this cocktail list, and we can’t wait to share it with our guests,” says head bartender, Rhiannon Csordas. “As well as creative cocktails and our delicious bar menu, guests can enjoy our enviable location with our incredible lakeside patio and mountain views, as well as a vibrant, relaxed interior with a stripped-back Canadiana-cabin style finish.”
Other new offerings for the summer include “Meatless Mondays” with a delicious three-course vegan menu available from 5.30-9.30 pm and “Go Local Wednesdays” with $15 AAA beef burger served all day and special pricing on select beers and wines. “Throwback Thursdays” feature classic cocktail specials and “#FridayCure” welcomes in the weekend with an eclectic mix of smooth beats from DJ Smokey every Friday and Saturday from 3-9pm.
Well positioned as Whistler’s only lakeside hotel and with its realm of summer offerings, including lakeside patios at Aura Restaurant and CURE Lounge & Patio, as well as use of their guest exclusive dock with complimentary stand up paddle boards, kayaks and canoes.
