It’s cocktail season and we’re serving a Canadian twist on a traditional holiday cocktail. The Holiday Flying Canuck Cocktail is inspired by the Flying Dutchman. The Canuck version has an extra premium taste and presentation with the addition of herb-infused Whistler Water ice cubes and a base of Whistler Glacial Water.
Holiday Flying Canuck Cocktail
Whistler Water herb-infused ice cubes (recipe below)

½ oz triple sec
2 oz gin
2 dash lemon bitters
- Add a few sprigs of thyme to a pot along with most of the Whistler water (save ¾ oz) and bring to a boil. Once boiled remove the water from the heat and let the herbs steep for 10 minutes. Pour the infused water and herbs into ice cube trays and freeze.
- To make the cocktail, combine a few herbed ice cubes in a shaker with the triple sec, gin, bitters and remaining ¾ oz Whistler water. Shake and pour into a class with ice.
- Garnish with a few sprigs of thyme or herbs of choice and a lemon twist.
