Canada is famous for a lot of things, including being one of the best nations on earth, Mounties, saying ‘sorry’, poutine, and hockey. One thing Canada’s reputation proceeds itself on is its Whiskey. No one—ok, maybe the Scottish—does whiskey better than Canadian Whiskey. The smooth, woodsy richness just cannot be match by other malts. Whiskey from Canada is just about as perfect of an alcohol as you can get.
It’s a smash hit, baby: that gorgeous amber Whiskey from Canada. Such a smash, that in honor of Canada’s spirited export and Victoria Day, HomoCulture is revealing a scrumptious little surprise new cocktail. The Canadian Whiskey Smash is everything perfectly Canadian in one gulp. Combined with mint, lemon, and Canadian maple syrup, the Canadian Whiskey Smash is a smooth rich taste of Canada in every glass.
Victoria Day is a celebration of Queen Victoria of England and a national holiday in Canada. While not Queen Victoria’s actual favourite drink, it is a great time to catch up with family and friends, celebrate Victoria Day in style with an apropos cocktail celebrating all things Canada: The Canadian Whiskey Smash.
