This morning I’m heading over to Salt Spring Island to judge the Glowtini competition where local bartenders and mixologists will be creating their idea of the perfect Salt Spring Island holiday cocktail.
Participants will be from Auntie Pestos Cafe, Harbour House Hotel Restaurant and Organic Farm, Marketplace Cafe, Moby’s Oyster Bar + Marine Grill, Oystercatcher, Raven Street Cafe, Rock Salt Restaurant, and the Salt Spring Inn.
John and I have been in love with this diverse Gulf Island since we first visited together in 2008. The community, the network of artisans and local producers, the landscape, it’s all very warm and welcoming.
Our latest stay at Hastings House was just as magical as the first. You may laugh when I use the adjective “magical” but once you go, you’ll know the feeling that Salt Spring Island gives you.
The Salt Spring Christmas Committee, Saltspring Air, and the Chamber of Commerce promoting the island as a destination at any time of year. As such, they have all partnered up to offer one of my readers a fantastic Salt Spring Island “Glow” prize package. This includes:
- A two night stay at the Blackberry Glen B&B
- Two round-trip flights from Vancouver via Saltspring Air
- Lunch provided by Bruce’s Kitchen
- Dinner at Auntie Pestos
- A Salt Spring Hamper full of locally produced gifts
