Here are two simple warm drinks that you can make at home and stay warm and cozy.
Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year. The temperature drops perfectly from the heat of the summer, the transformation of trees that change colour as winter approaches, and the bounty of fall harvest are reasons to celebrate.
Kelowna's summer heat can leave you thirsty and with cherry season in full swing, it's the perfect time to make cherry cocktails. Cool off with these delicious locally inspired drinks using Okanagan grown cherries.

Irish Style Black Emerald Float
Instead of the traditional green beer for St. Paddy's Day, try this delicious Kelowna inspired cocktail.
In Ireland, the locals love their stout on its own or topped up with some Ribena (blackcurrant juice) and often referred to as a "Stout & Black". This Black Emerald Float cocktail is inspired by the later with a Kelowna twist.
The Urban Flirtini
Are you looking for a drink recipe to wow your valentine? Look no further, this recipe is guaranteed to make them blush. Refreshing and flirty, this romantic martini features local ingredients from Urban Distilleries and Summerhill Pyramid Winery. It is the perfect way to start off a romantic Valentines Day date.
Okanagan Spiced Mulled Wine
Mulled wine is a popular North American beverage with deep European roots. Traditionally served steaming hot during Halloween and Christmas, this wintertime favourite consists of red wine, mulling spices, and often raisins. Some even chill their mulled wine and drink once cold. For me, mulled wine is best served hot and holds the spot as my favourite winter warmer because it's always favourful and comforting on chilly winter night.

Grown Up Chai Tea (Called, "PS: Chai Love You")
Enjoy this black tea cocktail with a delicious combination of cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, tea, and gin. In this recipe, I used Urban Distilleries'' Spirit Bear Gin because it is made from local grains, and 10 fruits and botanicals including Okanagan apples and Okanagan lavender. This fragrant local gin is the perfect spirit to match with the spiced chai tea that is central to this drink.
