The Guide to Pangea’s Cocktails

05Sep

The word is out. Pangea, which only opened in August last year, has already gained a reputation as one of the best places in Whistler to enjoy expertly-crafted cocktails. It’s not just staying guests that are saying it – it’s the locals too. (Remember: The Living Room and The Rooftop Patio are open to everyone). Perhaps it’s our convenient location right in the centre of Whistler – no-one wants to be far from the action when they’re on cocktails, right? Or maybe it’s because our cocktails can be enjoyed on Whistler’s only true top-deck terrace? Both true. But we also think it has something to do with the fact that our drinks are, quite simply, divine – the brain-children of our master mixologist whose creativity knows no bounds. Here are just some of his creations…

CHILIPIÑARITA.

  • Glass type: coupette
  • Ice: straight up
  • Ingredients: gin (1 ½ oz); lemon, (¾ oz); berries syrup (¾ oz); egg white (¾ oz)
  • Method: dry shake; add ice; shake; fine strain
  • Garnish: floating petals

Created in honour of Romina, the female protagonist in our cafe mural, this classy cocktail was conceived while imagining the kind of drink Romina might be sipping at a Pangea party. It’s an adaption of the classic Clover Club cocktail, using a homemade syrup made from four different berries, though don’t let the berries fool you – this drink packs a punch that belies its velvety texture.

DALMATIAN.

  • Glass type: rocks
  • Ice: cubed
  • Ingredients: vodka (1 oz); cracked black pepper syrup (¾ oz); grapefruit juice (1 oz); lemon juice (½ oz)
  • Method: built
  • Garnish: rosemary sprig

A drink that shouldn’t work but does, so much so that it’s come to be known as Pangea’s signature cocktail. A drink to be enjoyed while looking out from Pangea’s floor-to-ceiling windows in The Living Room or a little higher up on The Rooftop Patio. Intrigued by the genesis of the name?… You’ll have to ask Matt (nicely).

DAVIE STREET COOLER.

  • Glass type: Collins
  • Ice: cubed
  • Ingredients: vodka (1 oz); white wine (1 oz); apple juice (1 oz); elderflower cordial (¾ oz); lime juice (½ oz)
  • Method: shake; strain
  • Garnish: apple slice

Designed originally for “Queer Wednesdays” – Pangea’s weekly LGBTQ2+ meet-up – we wanted to create a beverage that personified the LGBTQ2+ community in our neighboring “big brother” city of Vancouver, hence the name. It’s crisp and refreshing and most importantly still light – a combination that makes it perfect for a warm afternoon on The Rooftop Patio.

DELICIOUS SOUR.

  • Glass type: Nick and Nora
  • Ice: straight up
  • Ingredients: cognac (¾ oz); peach liqueur (¾ oz); lemon juice (¾ oz); simple syrup (¾ oz); egg white (¾ oz)
  • Method: dry shake;add ice; shake; fine strain
  • Garnish: bitters hearts

Adapted from the book The Flowing Bowl by A. William Schmidt (1892), this is a drink that harks back to a simpler time. Delicious by name and delicious by nature.

BRAZILIAN SMASH.

  • Glass type: rocks
  • Ice: cubed
  • Ingredients: cachaça (1 oz); strawberry puree (1 oz); orange liqueur (½ oz); lime juice (¾ oz)
  • Method: shake;strain
  • Garnish: dehydrated lime; baby basil leaves; black pepper

This Frankenstein cocktail is the love child of two of the greatest summer inventions – the Caipirinha and Basil Grande. The seasonal strawberries and fresh basil give this drink a great fresh summer feel. To be enjoyed when the sun is high in the sky. All party, no siesta.

ROMINA SOUR.

  • Glass type: coupette
  • Ice: straight up
  • Ingredients: gin (1 ½ oz); lemon,(¾ oz); berries syrup (¾ oz); egg white (¾ oz)
  • Method: dry shake; add ice; shake; fine strain
  • Garnish: floating petals

Created in honour of Romina, the female protagonist in our cafe mural, this classy cocktail was conceived while imagining the kind of drink Romina might be sipping at a Pangea party. It’s an adaption of the classic Clover Club cocktail, using a homemade syrup made from four different berries, though don’t let the berries fool you – this drink packs a punch that belies its velvety texture.

The Pangea: The new Pangea Pod Hotel in the exciting Olympic town of Whistler is an affordable, convenient getaway with individual berths designed for solo travellers.

If you’re willing to share space, Pangea has several strong points: good prices, a sociable ambiance, progressive food and drink and an enviable location almost adjacent to the Whistler Blackcomb Gondola.”

Wild & Us | OVERNIGHT STAY AT THE PANGEA POD HOTEL, WHISTLER

by Wild & Us

Excerpt:

“We ran to snap some photos outside before it got too dark, then properly checked into the hotel. Pangea’s cool vibe hit us right away, with their all-digital check-in procedure, wrist bands instead of room cards and edgy artwork adorning the walls. Dimmed atmospheric lighting ran throughout the building and there was a real sense of mountain sport and adventure, meets stylish and chic comfort.”
