Sunkist Growers treated Montreal residents to a bright, garden-themed pop-up to escape the winter blues.
The citrus cooperative’s Citrus & Herb Garden taught more than 1,000 people how to pair citrus and herbs to encourage citrus consumption, according to a news release. The event was at Le Cathcart, a new foodie destination at the Place Ville Marie.
Mixologist Rose Simard served mocktails at a citrus herb garden beverage bar, and skincare and wellness expert Léa Bégin taught Montrealers about using citrus for skins scrubs.
“This is a great time of year to bring a little California sunshine to Canada,” Christina Ward, director of global brand marketing, said in the release. “By giving consumers in Montreal a taste of our California-grown citrus, we were able to showcase the versatility of our fruit through herbaceous pairings in dishes, drinks, décor and more.”
Sunkist plans another Citrus & Herb Garden pop-up for a tour around Toronto this spring.
