Whisky Cocktail: Canadian Caribou

The Canadian Caribou
an original cocktail By Chip Dykstra (Aka Arctic Wolf)

For this cocktail we need a Canadian Whisky with a strong Rye profile.  Here are several which work fine, Gibson’s Finest, Alberta PremiumHighwood Centenial, and the one I chose this time Black Velvet Deluxe Canadain Whisky.

As we are using a rye profiled whisky, I chose to mix with  Canada Dry Ginger ale.  The use of real ginger in the manufacture of this soda adds a taste component that compliments rye in a most beautiful way.

Finally the foil ingredient for this recipe is a remarkable Canadian Liqueur, Yukon Jack.  This is a honey based whisky liqueur which adds just the right amount of sweetness and elegance to the taste.  I love this cocktail, and I hope you do too.

Great tip. I love your comment abut the real ginger used in the Canada Dry Ginger Ale working so well with rye. I wish I could try one of these right now.

About this topic

Wiki

The other day I was trying to construct a nice cocktail or bar drink for a nice smooth Canadian whisky. I wanted something that anyone would recognize as a drink meant for the ‘Canadian Palate’. It had to be smooth and easy to drink, the way us Canadians like our bar drinks; and it had to be made entirely with ingredients which would be identified easily as Canadian.

The Chosen ingredients are:

3 parts Canadian Rye Whisky
1 part Yukon Jack
Cnadai Dry Ginger Ale to taste
