Canada Cocktail, Eh?
Ever wonder what Canada tastes like? We've always had the sneaking suspicion it would be Pall Mall cigarettes, Molson Golden and back bacon, but apparently that's not the case. Thanks to the mixologist over at Smirnoff, we now know that Canada tastes like rhubarb. Who knew? We've included the Canada Cocktail below - click through to the press release for more drink recipes including Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.
1 1/2 oz Smirnoff Black Cherry Vodka
1 oz 1:1 Simple Syrup
4 oz Rhubarb Juice
Build all ingredients in a tall glass filled with cubed ice.
Garnish with sliced rhubarb stalk.
Peel rhubarb and juice in a juicer, or puree in a food processor and press through a sieve. The result will be a green juice high in sediment. It is easiest to prepare a day in advance and let the juice settle in the refrigerator overnight. The next day you will have a beautiful pink juice layered on top. Pour this slowly through a coffee filter or damp paper towels, stop once you reach the green sediment. Keep the juice and discard the sediment. Yield: 5-6lbs equals approximately one litre of the finished product.
