Each room’s theme had a signature cocktail to match, we loved the Canadiana cocktail made of Canadian rye, peach cider and maple bacon!

We started with sangria garnished with a fruit popsicle, then hit up the champagne bar for bubbly with choice of fresh fruit or fruit puree, and then enjoyed a few classic cocktails.
