Juspur, Montreal's favourite cold pressed juice mecca is joining forces with Pur Vodkato create the ultimate tipsy treat for this Holiday season - a healthy alternative to traditional alcoholic mixes. No more vodka soda, gin tonic or rum and coke... No, sir! In 2015, it's time to get drunk by mixing hard liquor with healthy cold pressed juices!
Unlike a traditional vodka-soda or other mixed drinks, it keeps you hydrated, balances your electrolytes, tastes good and is 100% natural. In addition, the hangover is much milder than from any other mix available today.
There are six Juspur mixes to choose from that are part of a specially crafted line of juices called the "M line":
M1 - apple, ginger, lemon, lime (Goes well with vodka or gin)
M2 - orange, grapefruit, alkaline water, cayenne, lime (Goes well with tequila)
M3 (personal favorite) - pineapple, grapefruit, alkaline water, ginger (Goes well with rum, vodka or tequila)
M4 - watermelon, grapfruit, cayenne, lime (Tastes best in a vodka or rum slushie)
M5 - spinach, pineapple, lime, maple water (If you add rum, it looks and tastes like a green piña colada)
M6 - cucumber, maple water, cholorophil, ginger (Goes well with gin)
While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
