Canadian Cocktail Recipe

An elegant Canadian cocktail is made by combining Canadian whisky and orange liqueur with lemon and bitters. It is simple to make and a great way to learn more about the profile of a good blended whisky. The recipe uses the “cocktail” formula of a base spirit mixed with sweet, sour, and bitter components. Cocktails that originated in the late 1800s are based on this spirit, which dates back to the bartenders who mixed them up. There are many popular recipes that share this formula, for example the brandy cocktail, and that use any of the base distilled spirits to create, for example, a “whiskey cocktail” or “gin cocktail.” But this recipe specifies Canadian whisky.
