Watch: Evelyn Chick shows us three cocktails In the Kitchen with Foodism

In our Cocktail Episode, we shake things up with certified beverage expert Evelyn Chick and make three swoon-worthy cocktails perfect for at-home entertaining.

To coincide with the first ever Drinks Issue of Foodism, we brought our latest episode of In the Kitchen behind the bar to shake things up with certified beverage expert Evelyn Chick. In our Cocktail Episode, Chick shows us how to make two alcoholic and one non-alcoholic cocktail — all perfect for at-home mixing.

The founder of Evelyn Chick Projects started her career in Vancouver, before moving to Toronto to take on the beverage scene here. In 2015, Chick gained international notoriety when she was crowned “Best in the World” at the Global Beefeater MIXLDN championships. She went on to visit 16 cities in a year before settling back down in Toronto.

During the height of the pandemic, Chick launched her business Evelyn Chick Projects, offering cocktail kits, virtual classes, consulting and more. Her creative concoctions range from booze-forward tipples to non-alcoholic serves and even cannabis cocktails. Here, she flexes her mixology skills with three of her own creations.

A believer in supporting local, Chick's Fun Fino Fizz features Dillon's Dry Gin, while her take on the Scofflaw uses Bearface Whisky for a richer taste. Meanwhile the Fennel Fiddler has all the layers of a cocktail, without the alcohol for those who don't want to imbibe but still want all the flavour.

Check out the video above to watch Evelyn work her mixology magic.
