Downtown Victoria culinary tour digs into cocktails and hors d’oeuvres

Holiday Spirits and Culinary Tour stops at four restaurants for drinks, appies next week

Since two of the most important food groups during the holiday season are cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, Off the Eaten Track – a food-based tour guide experience – has partnered with New Theatre Spirits & Tonics to present a sampling tour through some of Victoria’s downtown eateries.

On Dec. 14, 15 and 16, the Holiday Spirits and Culinary Tour stops at four restaurants for drinks, appies, and a guide to creating the perfect cocktail.

“This tour is perfect for a unique date night, a friends night out, or for the cocktail enthusiast,” said Alexis Ragan, co-owner and tour guide with Off The Eaten Track.

The tour starts at 5:00 p.m. at The Mint on Douglas Street. Tickets are $85 and include all food and beverage samples. Visit http://victoriaspiritstour.eventbrite.ca for tickets and info.
