Hot Dining Edmonton

Where to Get the Best Holiday Drinks + Treats

Edmonton’s local dining destinations are showcasing the familiar flavours of Christmas in innovative new ways.┬áHere are 12 mouth-watering holiday treats to help you have a delicious 12 Days of Christmas!

1. The Grand Basil Poinsettia Martini can be enjoyed in the luxurious Confederation Lounge at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald (10064-100 St.). The mix of strawberries and basil give the the drink a tangy, lemonade-like flavour and, though the drink is made with an elaborate mix of vodka, Chambord, and Grand Marnier, it is an easy drink to sip and savour. WHERE Edmonton attended the Fairmont’s media holiday party where this festive drink was served and eagerly enjoyed by everyone at the event!

The Fairmont Hotel MacDonald has a festive holiday display in their lobby that includes an elaborate gingerbread replica of the hotel. Be sure to stop and check it out on your way to the Confederation Lounge for a Grand Basil Poinsettia Martini!

Hot Tip: You don’t need to be a guest at the hotel to enjoy a drink in the Confederation Lounge! Everyone is welcome!
