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.

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.”
