Winter Whisky Sour

’Tis the season: The retro tipple.

November 22, 2019 | | Drinks

Take a cue from Orangeville’s new speakeasy-style cocktail bar Revival 1863 for your own holiday gathering. Co-owner Angela Ward suggests fans try making their Winter Whisky Sour, a handcrafted tipple topped with “a bit of nostalgic Christmas spice.” The drink exemplifies the cozy, classic feel of the lounge, which Angela conceived as a throwback to a simpler time when families and friends slowed down to “break bread and talk over a great drink.”
