What makes a cocktail Canadian? Is it the rye in a Manhattan or the clam juice in a Caesar? To celebrate Canada’s 150th ANNIVERSARY, we’ve asked some of Whistler’s top bartenders to share the stories behind the most patriotic libations on their summer lists.
What is Canadian cuisine? In a country of so many diverse regions, cultures, traditions and even nations, it is almost impossible to pinpoint defining foods that represent our collective history. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun trying. To celebrate the country’s 150th ANNIVERSARY, we’ve asked some of Whistler’s top chefs to tell us about the most Canadian plate that they’ll be serving this summer — and why it says “Canuck” to them.
Summer in the mountains calls for crisp, cold beverages on the patio. The craft brewing scene is on fire in British Columbia, and with three taphouses right here in Whistler, there is no better place to soak up the suds scene. To help keep you quenched, we asked three local brewmasters to recommend their favourite seasonal brews. Prost!
