Cast Your Vote: Choose Your Cocktail

Start the countdown. We are only three and half weeks away from the Third Annual Canopy Awards presented by Whole Foods Market!

As you can imagine, everyone here at Casey Trees is busy prepping for this amazing event. From finalizing catering, ordering decorations, hiring talent, to creating those amazing picture-worthy awards.

But while we work behind the scenes to bring you the best event possible, we also want to peel the curtain back a bit and let you, our dedicated readers, influence some of our decisions.

So in that spirit, we want YOU to help determine the signature welcome cocktail.

Our lovely libations sponsor, Republic Restoratives, has offered up two delicious thirst-quenching options for you to choose from.

And unlike other votes you may cast this year, the outcome is something everyone can enjoy:

  • Tarragon Greyhound made with Civic Vodka, fresh tarragon, grapefruit, grapefruit bitters and a smidge of simple syrup. How aromatically arresting!
  • Adult’s Mint Lemonade made with Civic Vodka, fresh-squeezed lemons, fresh mint and a dash of simple syrup. A perfect way to celebrate spring!

Both sound delicious. Which will you choose?


We’ll be having more votes and surprising reveals for the Canopy Awards in subsequent Leaflets and over our social media. Stay tuned to be in the know!

Still don’t have your ticket yet? No worries, they are still available but are going fast. So grab yours today!
