Cirque – Fernie

Sometimes all a girl needs is some dessert and a cocktail.

Found myself having just that at a recent weekend away to Lizard Creek Lodge in Fernie.

Cirque is a favourite hangout of the in-laws, they’re in their shoulder season right now, so not a full menu, but who needs a full menu when all you want is dessert and an old fashioned?

I’m not a huge chocolate fan in real life, but I am a huge chocolate torte fan. Go figure. The cake was presented beautifully and very rich, but a touch on the dry side for my ideal torte.

The star of this visit however, was the old fashioned. Damn it was a quality cocktail. The bartender asked what bourbon I would like, and since I’m not yet a bourbon connoisseur, I went with Maker’s Mark since it was the only name I recognized when he rattled a bunch off.

It was smooth, a hint of sweet and that big mother ice cube is the thing cocktail dreams are made of.  Oh, and that orange peel? A work of art.
