The Christmas holiday is approaching fast, and families will gather together to catch up on the events of a tough year. Now that going to a land-based casino is not a viable option at the moment, you can opt for Jackpot online casino to play your favorite casino game with family and friends as you sip on some Canadian inspired cocktails. In this guide, you’ll learn about six of the most popular Canadian cocktails you can try.

Donald Sutherland

Do you know the Rusty Nail cocktail? Well, Donald Sutherland is the Canadian version of Rusty Nail. You’ll need to combine Canadian rye whiskey and Drambuie to prepare it. Pour the two ingredients into an ice-filled glass and stir. You can garnish the cocktail with a lemon twist before serving. The Canadian drink is named after one of the most famous Canadian actors, a huge fan of rye whiskey.

Angry Canadian

Angry Canadian is a variation of the classic cocktail. It is prepared by mixing Canadian rye whiskey, bitters, club soda or water, and pure maple syrup in place of sugar used in the classic cocktails. Steven Johnson is the father of this modern version of the famous classic cocktail, which he invented in Calgary in 2013.

Raymond Massey

Raymond Massey is a Canadian cocktail made by mixing rye whiskey, ginger syrup, and champagne. To prepare it, shake whiskey and ginger with ice, strain the mixture into a highball glass and top it with champagne. It would be best if you garnished the cocktail with lemon or lime peel. This cocktail was created in Toronto as a tribute to legendary actor Raymond Massey (1896 – 1983).


Mahogany is a cocktail that is well known in Canada and England. It is made by mixing Jagermeister, Benedictine, dry vermouth, and cinnamon tincture. To prepare the cocktail, you should first coat a cocktail glass with the cinnamon tincture or cinnamon schnapps. Stir the other ingredients with ice, then strain the contents into the glass.


Caesar is a Canadian cocktail made by mixing vodka, clam-infused tomato juice, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. The cocktail is usually served in a large glass with ice and celery salt rim. It is garnished with a lime wedge and celery stalk before serving.

Many people believe that the Caesar was invented in 1969 in Calgary by Walter Chell, a restaurateur. He is believed to have made the cocktail to celebrate the opening of a new Italian restaurant. The cocktail was named after Chell’s Italian ancestry.

Although the cocktail is not celebrated much outside the Canadian borders, it is used by many revelers as an excellent hangover cure. Nowadays, it is a staple at many Canadian parties.


Banff invented this layered cocktail in Canada in 1977. It is a widespread belief that the drink was named after the long-range bomber Americans used during the Vietnam War. The ingredients include coffee liqueur (Mexican Kahlua), Irish cream (Baileys), and Grand Marnier orange liqueur.

You can replace the Grand Marnier with triple sec, Amaretto, Cointreau, or absinthe. If you prepare it correctly, build the elements in a shot glass, and you should see the layers. Usually, the orange liqueur is on top and coffee liqueur at the bottom. The traditional B-52 is served neat in a shot glass. However, there is a variation known as Flaming B-52, which comes with a top layer of rum that helps to ignite the flame.
