Nadège Patisserie on Queen St. West is becoming one of my favourite foodie spots to visit this year! This past weekend on May 28th, 2016 from 1pm-4pm, Nadège teamed up with Perrier Canada to ring in summer with some incredible mocktails and a limited edition Perrier inspired macaron! They were also promoting the upcoming Rogers Cup with a chance to win tickets to the game in exchange for a lifestyle shot of the Perrier macaron and mocktail (#nadegexperrier). Now if you missed out of this fun event, do not fear! According to their Facebook page, the limited edition macarons should be available until June 10th and the mocktails will be happening all summer long (although they might not have all 4 flavours)!
Outside a small “bar” was set up for walker-bys to sample one of the 4 amazing mocktail flavours. As it was over 30C and humid, this was a much appreciated relief to the heat (and they weren’t stingy on the ice either)! When I arrived they had their rose water, lemon, bergamot syrup and Perrier mocktail being served up. After one sip I was hooked. Perfect combination of sweet, crisp flavours and of course those classic Perrier bubbles! I decided to go in and pick up some of the limited macarons (Yuzu and Pernod flavoured I believe), which was being served in an exclusive Perrier Roland-Garros gift box and a refreshing Perrier Mocktail. For the drink and 6 macarons (plus 1 free with purchase of the elixir) came to just under $20.
The macarons I purchased (aside from the 3 Perrier limited edition ones) included:
Orange Zest – delicious combo of chocolate and orange that reminded me of Christmas when I would often treat myself to a Terry’s Chocolate Orange
Salted Caramel – wow…next time I am getting a box of just these
All the macarons were made perfectly and bursting with flavour. Definitely a fancy and fun treat on a hot summers day!
In conclusion I would strongly recommend making your way down to Nadège Patisserie Queen St. West location for one of these mocktails and if you are lucky enough to make it before June 10th, you can also then enjoy a delicious Perrier macaron as well (call ahead to find out what is available and being served up). Oh and be sure to follow Nadège Patisserie on Facebook to catch their next food inspired event!
