A Playground of Crafted Elixirs
At Shelter Cocktail Bar, mixology is a blend of science, creativity, and passion. Each cocktail is meticulously crafted to evoke a sensory experience that transcends the ordinary. The new summer menu serves as a testament to the bar team’s commitment to pushing boundaries and delivering an unparalleled drinking adventure.
Here, we shine a spotlight on a few of the remarkable concoctions that exemplify Shelter’s dedication to crafting cocktails that are as sophisticated as they are refreshing:
A tangy, sweet concoction, with delicate creamy notes of green tea. Totoro is composed of gunpowder tea infused cachaça, yogurt liqueur, uji umeshu, lychee, vanilla, lemon, and peach. Served in a highball glass with split-peeled orange zest, Totoro provides depths of flavours woith an unexpected “cravability” to it.
Shelter Shaft Volume I
A harmonoous blend of bitterness, sweetness, alcohol and coffee, we’re proud to present our first official (ie. on the menu) version of a classic Calgary cocktail, The Shaft. Our shaft cocktail include sotol, rye, amaro del capo, and salted caramel espresso with whipped cream. Indulgent yet so crushable, this drink will keep you up all night one way or another.
When Japan meets Mexico, the outcome is the Bodega Blossom. A spicy, vibranty, Nikkei-inspired Margartia play, this barbie-pink cocktail is composed of reposado, junmai nigori sake, muscat, perilla, hibiscus, lime, grapefruit, and palo santo tincture. Refreshing, and oh-so-smooth, start or finish your night with this gem of a drink.
Shelter Cocktail Bar’s new summer menu is a testament to the seamless fusion of craftsmanship and imagination. Our bar team has proudly put effort into every individual drink, each to be savoured and celebrated individually. We’ll see you at the wood.
