This is my submission for one of the Canadian Cocktail Competition, and the name of my creation is
The Treasure of the North.
As you remember, We the North, so I have created a cocktail, made from ingredients that represent Canada, but not only for Canadians. So, here is the truly Canadian Cocktail.
What makes it truly a Canadian Cocktail?
(Post may contain affiliate links.)
Using local products, such as Ice Wine, Verjus and Maple Syrup from Ontario is a part of the sustainability program. The headliner of this creation Crown Royal Limited Edition Blended Canadian Whisky together with Bitterling Bitters from BC make this drink unique and truly Canadian. So here is my creation.
Most importantly, the brand of my choice is Crown Royal Limited Edition Blended Canadian Whisky is a blend of batch-distilled whiskies that are “extra-aged to perfection” at a Gimli Distillery, Manitoba. Moreover, my inspiration is hiding inside of the bottle. Firstly, on the nose floral notes, a little bit of apple at the beginning with oak and vanilla with a creamy texture on the palate make it light and approachable, perfect pair with delicate Ice Wine and not overpowering it. Above all, you can buy it only in Canada.
Hey, what is that…… you see, you must always keep your treasure with you, especially on Bartender Competition.
1 ¼ Crown Royal Limited Edition Blended Canadian Whisky
¼ Ice Wine Cave Spring Riesling (any Riesling Ice Wine, no more than sugar content 230 g/l)
¾ Verjus Southbrook Preserves
¼ Maple Syrup (1:1 ratio)
2 dashes Bittered Sling Kensington Aromatic Bitters
Half-rim of dehydrated grape leftover from the kitchen blended and muddled to dust, maple syrup.
Make the half rim. Chilled the glass; measure and pour all ingredients into the shaker tin, fill with ¾ of ice, shake vigorously, double strain, serve with love.
