In case you missed my earlier post, or in case you have been in complete hibernation the past two weeks and have been absolutely ignorant of all world happenings, let me fill you in on all the hubbub: THE OLYMPICS ARE IN FULL SWING! I am somewhat of an Olympics enthusiast (read: full on Olympic psycho fan) and as such have been celebrating everything USA, Olympics, and Canada. What better way to celebrate our neighbor to the north than to concoct a cocktail with good ol' Canadian whiskey. The cocktail of the week celebrates Canada and all the fabulous spirits they offer. So grab a seat, turn on NBC Primetime, and take a good, long sip. It is time to enjoy all the Winter Olympics have to offer!
1 1/2 oz Canadian Whiskey
1 1/2 tsp Triple Sec
1 dash Bitters
1 tsp Simple Syrup
In a rocks glass packed with ice combine whiskey, triple sec, simple syrup and bitters. Stir and garnish with an orange twist or a lemon.
