Alloy is known for its delicious and beautifully plated food, but perhaps less for its lush, sunny patio in the summertime. A bit out of the way off Macleod Trail, this award-winning restaurant is the perfect spot for a cocktail and a bite on a warm day.

This year, for the Shake, Stir and Strainbow campaign, Alloy's barkeep Roydon Mitton has come up with a satiating drink with Cointreau, gin, tequila and plenty of citrus. Try your hand at it at home this long weekend!

The Shake, Stir and Strainbow campaign wraps on Monday, Sept. 2, 2019, so swing by Alloy for a sip to see how your homemade version compares!
