Three cocktails made with Canadian spirits
If we talk about spirits in Canada, the first thing we think about is rye whisky, better known as rye. And of course, if the country is home to great fields of rye and grains that provide a solid production of whisky.
Canadian spirits: more than whisky
But in Canada, spirits products in general are varied. Gin and vodka, and even bitter, are part of the national production. We introduce you to some of them to create cocktails.
Cocktail with Whisky Sivo
This whiskey is made from rhubarb liqueur. To prepare this fresh cocktail you will need:
- 45 ml of Rhubarb Sivo liqueur whisky
- 30 ml of Rye Sivo
- 22.5 ml lemon juice
- 22.5 ml simple syrup
- 4 to 5 mint leaves
Add the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill it with ice. Shake and filter as you pour the preparation into a glass with ice.
Cocktail Negroni with bitter Amer Amer
The company Spiritueux Iberville produces a bitter liqueur with notes of strawberry, rubarb, rosemary, pink grapefruit and pine.
