Bring in summer with made-at-home cocktails. The possibilities are endless, but we think these four cocktails suit the occasion nicely. Mix one (or all) up for your summer celebrations.
Dark ’n’ Stormy
Give this cocktail a fresh Canuck feel by making it with Chic Choc Spiced Rum. Made in Canada, it is produced with six indigenous spices, creating a fresh take on rum that features a spicy bouquet with nuances of sugar cane and cinnamon, complemented by a subtle peppery tone.
45 ml (1 1/2 oz.) Chic Choc Spiced Rum
60 ml (2 oz.) ginger ale
15 ml (1/2 oz.) lemon juice
1 sprig of spruce
Fill a glass with ice cubes. Add Chic Choc Spiced Rum, ginger ale and lemon juice. Garnish with the sprig of spruce.
