Revelers at the inaugural Capital Ukrainian Festival taking place in Ottawa this July 24-26 will have a new cocktail (created by Algonquin College students) to get them in a celebratory mood. Wild Steppe’s sweet, blue top layer is created by foaming Hpnotiq Original blue liqueur over a base layer of tart lemon and lime juices, and rounded out by Zirkova Vodka. Zirkova Vodka is owned by Ukrainian Canadians, imported from Ukraine, and quadruple-distilled in the historic birthplace of vodka. It is uniquely designed to make better cocktails, as it enhances the flavour of all ingredients and smoothes the taste experience. For those who prefer beer, the Festival will feature Lvivske 1715 Premium Beer. This light, dry pilsner is brewed in the legendary Lvivska Brewery in Lviv, Ukraine which is celebrating its 300 year anniversary.
Festival goers can enjoy these and other beverages starting Friday, July 24 at the kick-off pub night, 1000 Byron Avenue, Ottawa, featuring the Lemon Bucket Orkestra. Drinks, food and entertainment will continue to flow on Saturday, July 25 and Sunday, July 26 at the main festival site, 952 Green Valley Crescent, Ottawa. Whichever the drink, lift them to the Ukrainian toast of Nazdorovia (To your health)!
