How to Make A Mexican Bulldog Margarita: Longhorn’s Signature Drink

The bartenders at the Longhorn at the base of Whistler Mountain make thousands of "Bulldogs" each year - recently we had a request by a UK based visitor wanting to know how he could make this legendary concoction home. He wanted to take the taste of his summer adventure in Whistler home, so we decided to send him this video to show him just how it's done.

Toro, the Owl and the Grill and Vine Whistler

We love good food and drink here at Gibbons Life, but most of all we love passion. We recognize that passion is what sets people and businesses apart, and we want to support those who strive for excellence in their field. Our friends at the FireRock Lounge told us about a summer dinner series that piqued our interest and so we checked in with Whistler's Grill and Vine restaurant to find out more.

The Clam Barrier of the Canadian Caesar Cocktail

Over 350 million Caesars are consumed each year in Canada, but it's possibly their "special ingredient" that keeps the Caesar within the confines of Canada. This would be "Clamato juice", and as the name suggests its a mixture of tomato juice and clam broth. This is your Bloody Mary with a distinctly fishy finish.

The skies of Whistler are overcast, ominous clouds are bringing the rain spring is known for and we all start to feel a bit gloomy. Living in a temperate rainforest gives us the lush, green landscape we like to play in, but it also means we have to put up with a lot of H2O. This spring we’ve decided to embrace the rain, instead of whine about it - like Gene Kelly we’re planning to dance in it if we have to.
