This bright and sparkling drink is filled with Canadian flavour though and through, from the tart and sweet rhubarb simple syrup, to Canadian rye whisky and completed with a splash of Canadian Montellier® Sparkling Water. A cocktail this patriotic is best enjoyed with classic Canadian cuisine, so gather your friends to a platter of poutine (served family-style), or opt for an easy, elegant Canadian cheese plate with sharp Cheddars and gooey brie drizzled with, you guessed it, maple syrup!

Directions

Step 1

In a saucepan, heat the water, sugar and chopped rhubarb over medium-high heat until the mixture is boiling, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Lower the heat to medium and continue to cook, stirring occasionally for 8 minutes. The rhubarb will have become very soft at this point.

Step 3

Remove from the heat and pour the mixture through a metal sieve into large bowl and use a rubber spatula to press down the fruit to release the liquid.

Step 4

Bring the syrup to room temperature, pour into small jars or bottles and refrigerate until needed.

Step 5

Add ice to each glass.

Step 6

Pour rhubarb simple syrup, then the whisky over ice.

Step 7

Top up with Montellier™ Sparking Water, to taste.

Step 8

Stir and adjust with more simple syrup if needed.

Step 9

Top with a cherry and enjoy!
