Happy Canada Day!!!

Since I know a bunch of beautiful people who are from the great country of Canada (you know who you are) I've decided to have myself a Canadian cocktail using Crown Royal. As you've read from a prior post, I profiled Crown Royal but before I talk about the drink, I wanted to tell you all what Canada Day is.

According to about.com Canada Day page:
Canada Day is celebrated on July 1st across the country. July 1st marks the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada - that's the technical explanation, but Canada Day also means fireworks and the year's biggest national party. The Canada Day holiday is akin to the U.S. July 4th celebration but on a more Canadian scale.
Good enough reason to light up fireworks and have cocktails. No? Here is the cocktail I chose to use to commemorate Canada Day.
Crown Royal® Whisky Splash Classic Cocktail
Ingredients:
Crown Royal® - 1.5 oz.
Sweet and Sour Mix - 1 oz.
Grenadine - 1 teaspoon
Club Soda - 3 oz.

Combine Crown Royal whisky, sweet and sour mix, and grenadine over ice in an Old Fashioned glass. Top with club soda. Garnish with a lime wedge.

The Whisky Splash is a pitch-perfect drink. Crown Royal is combined with the tangy, sweet flavor of sour mix and grenadine, all wrapped up in one package. This is one, taste-bud pleaser.
As the description suggests, it is a tasty blend of sweet and sour from the grenadine and sweet and sour mix with the bubbles of the club soda and obvious the whisky of the Crown Royal. Delicious!!!! So in honor of all of our neighbors up North: Happy Canada Day. Cheers!!!!



Until Then Happy Drinking,
