Canuck Cocktails

Bars in the city are gold-medal ready with Canadian-inspired drinks to keep your patriotism up when you’re out. Here are a few sips.

Nothing could be more strong and free than Cooper Tardivel's award-winning True North martini. Tardivel concocted the drink using a maple dessert wine from Jost, garnished with maple-candied apple balls. "It's a dessert other words, great for warming up in the ski lodge after a gold medal run," writes Tardivel.

Tribeca Bistro & Bar

Dawn Negus, Tribeca bartender, divulges her most Canadian recipe for the Dartmouth Caesar: mix ice, Great White Wine Beverage, soy sauce and ketchup (that's right) in a martini shaker, then pour it into shot glasses. "Although it sounds gross...the real punch line to this joke is that the Dartmouth Caesar doesn't taste gross," writes Negus. More like ketchup chips, actually.

Argyle Bar and Grill

Folks at the Argyle are keeping the class alive with their Canadian Gold martini, only available during the Olympics. "This martini is sweet-tasting, with a cinnamon finish," writes Argyle manager Kateri Slaughter. It'll probably go down smoother than ketchup, and sit as pretty as that shiny gold medal.

Snaubar Lebanese Cuisine

In keeping with the golden hues (gold medals on the mind, anyone?) Snaubar's new Gold Medal-Tini mixes tequila, peach schnapps, triple sec, Sprite, grenadine and tops it off with a garnish of olives. Only available during the Olympics.

For a couple weeks at this time of year, the blooming cherry trees on Park Avenue make for the ultimate photo backdrop in the city. But what’s the most photogenic location year-round in HRM?
