Remembrance Day cocktail Remembrance Day is a day all Canadians pay their respect to not only Canadian heritage and Pride, but also for remembering and respecting WWI and WWI veterans and Canadian Peace Keepers. Homoculture pays homage to all Canadians on this day and will celebrate the holiday with a new twist on the old Remembrance Day Cocktail. The red poppy is a flower that grew along the Western Front in World War 1, and Canadians wear a poppy on Remembrance Day to honor those who fought and died for Canada. Honor ceremonies begin at 11:00am all across Canada. Afterwards, the country celebrates. Maybe even with the new version of the Remembrance Day Cocktail.

The original version of this cocktail was invented by the voyageurs (French-Canadian explorers), but their version called for whisky mixed with caribou blood, served hot. The Remembrance Day Cocktail is now made with red wine or port, Brandy and maple syrup, but is still served hot. It’s made in large batches and often served at festivals or in people’s homes.
