Part of our tour included a brief mixology class with Tish on all the ways you can use CC Whisky. So now that we’re all whisky experts – lets get to the nitty gritty stuff – how to get your whisky on. Here are a few of my favourite cocktails we made.
The CC Berry
- Fill a highball with ice
- Add 1oz CC Whisky Premium
- 1/2 oz of cranberry juice
- top with soda water
- garnish with berries
CC & Ginger Ale
- Pour 1.5 oz of Canadian Club over ice in a lowball glass
- Top with 4oz of Ginger Ale
- Garnish with a slice of lemon
Had to capture the moment; Stella, Mark and Andrew channeling their inner paparazzi
The CC Caesar
- Rim your highball glass with a caesar spice blend
- fill your highball with ice
- add 1.5 oz of Canadian Club Reserve
- 4 dashes of Tabasco
- 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
- pepper & salt to taste
- top with clamato juice and garnish with your favourite pickled item or celery
Naturally, after “class” was over – Tish let all the kiddies out to play. And man, oh man, did we play. That’s Christine pictured above getting her groove on and reminiscing back to her old bartending days. I took the lazy girl route and made myself a CC caesar – my all time favourite drink! I was not bout to start muddling stuff and squeezing fresh OJ, nuh uh.
Of course, you get a few drinks in and all-of-a-sudden everyone is comparing pet pictures and gushing over who has the cutest fur baby. That’s Margaret peeking in the background!
What, that doesn’t happen at your social gatherings?
Well that wraps up Canadian Club Whisky month .. just kidding! See you suckahs next week for the grub that went down during this whisky tour – we’re talking carbs, carbs, carbs, at a primo Italian joint and boas & feather caps at another.
