Holiday Cocktail Recipes
Remember those orange bitters from our Harvest cocktail roundup? You’ll use them in a maple-flavoured classic, an Old Fashioned, with purely Canadian ingredients. Then, just in time for the countdown to the New Year or brunch with some girlfriends, you’ll try a tasty French 75 using a little bubbly and delicious, sugar kelp infused gin.
Treat your dinner guests (or yourself) to our Classic French 75 as an aperitif (a drink taken before a meal to stimulate the appetite) and our Canadian Maple Old Fashioned as a digestif (for after Christmas dinner).
Classic French 75:
- 1 1/2 oz Isle of Harris Gin
- 3/4 oz lemon juice
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- Bottega Gold Champagne (to top off each glass)
Serve your French 75 in a Riedel champagne glass. Get two for $74.90 from Noble Estates.
Canadian Maple Old Fashioned:
- 1 tsp raw maple syrup
- 3 dashes orange bitters (We love Dillon’s!)
- 2 ounces Howitzer Canadian Whiskey ($3 off at Noble Estates and the LCBO from Jan. 3 to Jan 30!)
- Orange twist (for serving)
- Luxardo Maraschino Cherry (for serving)
Serve your Old Fashioned in a Riedel whiskey glass. Get two + a pitcher for $199.90 from Noble Estates.
