At Bauhaus Restaurant, we like to keep on the cutting edge of culinary trends. That's why we provide the option for serving eau de vie in our cocktails. Eau de vie, which translates from the French to "water of life," is a un-aged fruit brandy that can be substituted for vodka in cocktails and other drinks. This spirit can be based on a wide variety of fruits, including pears, apples, and raspberries, which have been fermented and distilled. Much like other spirits, eau de vie provides a subtle fruit-tinged flavour so light that it does not overwhelm the taste of the cocktail itself.
Perhaps the best thing about using eau de vie at Bauhaus Restaurant is that it helps support local farmers. Because of the visually-imperfect nature of fruit-based spirits, it is less marketable in commercial liquor stores than clear vodka or whiskey. By serving eau de vie, we're directly supporting local producers by providing a market for the delicious spirit. Try eau de vie in our fabulous and refreshing cocktails at Bauhaus Restaurant.
