Mosey Up to VTSL’s Bar For Limited Edition Western World Cocktails
(Vancouver, BC) – Cowpokes and gunslingers, school marms and madams are just some of the individuals you might meet when you visit Western World, Vancouver TheatreSports’™ (VTSL) parody of the hit HBO series Westworld. As in the TV series, Western World takes place in a Wild West theme park populated by AI inhabitants called ‘Hosts’ who portray all the stereotypical characters found in every western movie and TV show.
It has become a tradition for The Improv Centre’s Bar Manager Paul Belsito to design specialty cocktails to complement the theme of each new VTSL feature show and Western World is no exception. From April 6th through May 13th, theatre patrons can mosey up to the Neil Macrae Bar & Lounge and treat themselves to one of these limited-edition cocktails:
- THE MAN IN BLACK – a badass drink worthy of any gunslinger, this is a modern version of the 1880’s favourite ‘Sasparilla’ (sarsaparilla, the basis of the drink ‘Sasparilla,’ is to this day an actual ingredient in root beer). Ingredients: Bourbon Whiskey, Tennessee Whiskey and Root Beer
- THE MADAM – refreshingly ‘tart,’ this is a cocktail that Westworld’s Maeve or Gunsmoke’s Miss Kitty would have surely enjoyed. Ingredients: Bristol Cream Sherry, Tanqueray 10 Gin, San Pellegrino Limonata, lime juice and soda
- CANADIAN COWBOY – many of the cowpokes who worked the ranches and roamed the prairies in 1880’s Canada were originally cattle herders from the Scottish Highlands and Ireland, this drink pays homage to them. Ingredients: Canadian Club Rye Whisky, Baileys Irish Cream and Butterscotch Liqueur
Specialty cocktails are a ‘steal’ at only $8.75. The Bar & Lounge also serves a full range of premium and on-tap beers along with wines, highballs and non-alcoholic beverages.
So rustle up a posse and head on down to The Improv Centre for an evening of western-themed spirits and high jinks.
