When the season changes and the temperature falls, I embrace spirits full of flavour with smooth oak notes.
Dock No. 57, a smooth Canadian whisky spiced with a hint of vanilla, cinnamon and caramel, blends nicely with apple juice and fizzy ginger ale. The whisky is named after the historic shipping dock in Windsor, Ont., where Canadian Club is produced.
Drinks like this make it easier to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall.
1 oz. Canadian Club Dock No. 57
2 oz. Apple juice
2 oz. Ginger ale
2 dashes cinnamon
Garnish with a cinnamon stick
Pour apple juice, two dashes cinnamon and Dock 57 into a shaker. Shake with ice and then strain into a glass with new ice. Top with ginger ale and garnish with a dash of cinnamon and a cinnamon stick.
Spiced whisky is not as sweet as a spiced rum so it’s a great choice for those who don’t what a sugary tasting spirit.
Look for apple juice that says “not from concentrate” on the label because using juice that’s not from concentrate will always give you a better tasting drink.
