VEGAN COCKTAILS DEBUT AT BAMBUDDA

Egg white substitutes are pretty commonplace when it comes to baking, but until now they just haven’t worked the same in cocktail. Bambudda bartenders, Tarquin Melnyk and Dylan Williams, have been working with Ms. Betters Bitters to create an all-natural solution that will hit store shelves across the country. It’s already behind their own bar, making an appearance in three faves, including the Pisco Sour. VancityBuzz got the full scoop here.
