Oh kitty girl, we can't lie to you. If you aren't coming to Drags Benny (our inaugural and sold out Calgary Pride fundraiser) at the Fairmont Palliser, you are missing out this Sunday.
No tea, no shade.
The good news is, though, that you can easily whip up our event's signature cocktail, a spin on a mimosa, in the comfort of your own home. Award-winning bar manager, Madeleine MacDonald (Calcutta Cricket Club, SAIT) found inspiration for this bubbly brunch concoction from drag queen Laila McQueen's vibrant hair and makeup. Lemon, raspberry purée, Eau Claire Distillery Parlour Gin and lavender bitters help to flip the predictable idea behind a mimosa on its head.
Shantay you stay...to cheers with us to Pride season!
