Wednesday is Canada Day! We thought we would entice you with some Canadian themed cocktails to get the party started.
What is Canada Day without the ultimate Canadian cocktail? The classic Caesar!

RUN a lemon wedge around the rim of a tall glass, then turn it upside down onto a plate of celery salt. Fill glass with ice.
ADD 3 tbsp vodka, 4 dashes Tabasco, 2 dashes Worcestershire and the remaining juice from the lemon wedge. Top up with Clamato juice and a generous grinding of pepper. Garnish with a celery stalk and another lemon wedge.

What is more Canadian then maple syrup? Possibly Canada Dry Ginger Ale. This cockatil combines both! Celebrate the best of both worlds with a Maple Rye and Ginger.
