Celebrate Canada Day with this ingenious Canadian cocktail. The Rocky Mountain Shrub features rich, bold flavours of barrel-aged Canadian rye whisky, lemon citrus, sweet sugar water and balsamic vinegar.
This pleasingly refreshing, slightly sour cocktail is great for pairing with a fresh spring salad or a rich cheese appetizer.
1½ oz. Alberta Premium Dark Horse Whisky
½ oz. simple syrup (1:1 ratio sugar to water)
½ oz. fresh lemon juice
½ oz. balsamic vinegar
Pour all ingredients into a shaker and shake vigorously with ice. Strain into a glass with new ice.
This cocktail is a strong sour-style drink. The type of balsamic vinegar you use will determine just how sour it will initially be. To make it less sour, use more simple syrup; to make it more sour, use more lemon juice.
Whether you are preparing a meal or mixing a drink, fresh ingredients always make a positive difference. The Canadian Daisy features real lemon and crisp raspberries, soft woody oak notes and some fizz: a beautiful blend of flavours using fresh ingredients and premium spirits.
1 oz. Canadian Club whisky
2 lemon wedges
3 raspberries, including one to garnish
1 tsp. sugar
Splash of Courvoisier VS cognac
Splash of Soda
In a glass, muddle lemon wedges, two raspberries, and sugar. Fill glass with ice and pour in whisky. Add soda to just below the rim and stir gently. Slowly drizzle Courvoisier VS around the top of the drink. Garnish with raspberry.
When using fresh ingredients, it’s important to taste them before using them in a drink. Eat a raspberry to taste how ripe it is. If the batch of fruit you have isn’t as vibrant in taste as the last, you may need to add more to give the drink the same flavour. Is the lemon juicy and bright yellow, or dry and old? The better your ingredients, the better the end result.
Weekends are what many of us count down to each week — the few days we take for ourselves and relax. To help you chill out, try this fruity-sweet cocktail full of tropical notes of coconut, banana, and orange.

3 oz. orange juice
Swirl of grenadine
Pour rums, liqueur and grenadine into a tall glass filled with ice. Add orange juice and top with ginger ale. Carefully stir and garnish with any tropical garnish, or a cocktail umbrella.
If you’re serving a few people, make up a pitcher so you can relax instead of constantly preparing more drinks.
Pour all the ingredients except ginger ale into a pitcher. When someone needs a refill, stir the pitcher and pour into glass with ice, then top with ginger ale.
