6 Kick Ass Canadian Club Cocktails

Canadian-Club

While my favorite way to drink whisky is warm and neat, that’s a hard beverage to stomach during the scorching-hot summer months. So to help you cool down, while still keeping whisky solidly in your diet, the best way to go is the cocktail. My two favorite whiskies to mix are Canadian Club 10-year-old and 12-year-old. These two refreshing yet flavorful spirits go great with a wide variety of mixers. Here are the 6 Canadian Club cocktails I think kick the most ass.

NOTE: To all you whisky fanatics out there, be sure to try the Canadian Club 30-YO. Unless you’re a Goldman, Sachs employee, the $200 price tag makes it not the best for mixing. But with a nice, healthy pour and an ice cube, this smooth, vanilla whisky will practically wash your problems away. (You know, problems like having just spent $200 on a bottle of liquor…)
