Plus de Fleurs is a romeo's gin cocktail, created by Malik Deluy from The Drake Hotel, inspired by Jason Botkin's artwork at Yorkville Murals.

Malik Deluy

“When I was looking at the mural for the first time, the first thing that hit me was how absolutely vibrant and bold it was. But then I tried the romeo’s gin which was beautifully floral and delicate, which made me want to play off of the floral notes. This helped me choose my ingredients but also the name. But because the mural has a strong nature’s bounty influence I went to choose some additional ingredients that reflected that character, like orgeat, chocolate, and cardamon. And there it was: Plus de Fleurs, a strong, multi-flowered Martini that screams spring!”

Jason Botkin

Since 2009, Botkin has been involved in the creation of over 200 murals internationally, while exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe. A graduate from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 1997 (with honors), his body of work includes the co-creation and ongoing direction of the EN MASSE project.

The artist believes that Public Art should be accessible to all and strives to create offerings that challenge the assumptions of everyday life and its institutions. The mural is an interconnected series of plant, animal and insect life indigenous to Ontario, and each of which has been deemed threatened, endangered or extirpated.
