Kelowna's Most Walkable Tasting Trail

Tuesday, July 18, 2017 3:00 PM by Eric Saukarookoff

Beer, wine, cider, and spirits... all within and easy-to-walk 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) with some great stops along the way to eat, shop, snap photos and soak in city vibes.

Head into downtown Kelowna for a self-guided, walking tour of award winning wineries, breweries, distilleries, and a cidery that call the downtown urban core home.

Warm weather and cold beers are a perfect date combo. And with three breweries (and a forth on the way) all within walking distance of each other in the heart of downtown Kelowna, a brewery loop tour is an easy and fun way to spend the day with your sweetie.

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 Perfect Drink for Winter Nights in Kelowna

Okanagan Spiced Mulled Wine

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.
