Canada: it’s known for its friendly people. It’s famous for its lush maple syrup. And it has a rep for making some incredible whiskies. Case in point? Pike Creek. This 10-year-old dram is a blend of corn and rye spirits - a calling card of Canadian whisky, FYI.  

Take a sip, and you’ll get some rich sweetness layered on spicy, nutty notes - that’s because Pike Creek’s aged in rum barrels in southern Canada, where some pretty wild temperature swings help it develop heaps of flavour. Hell yeah. 


Your holiday drinking just got sophisticated thanks to this Champagne Cocktail riff… 

Little Red Rooster 

  • 45ml Pike Creek 10 Year Old Canadian Whisky 
  • 15ml oloroso sherry 
  • 15ml cranberry syrup 
  • 15ml fresh lemon juice 
  • 60ml Champagne 
  • Lemon twist, for garnish 

Combine all ingredients except the Champagne in a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake until it’s cold. Fine strain into a flute, then top up with the Champagne. Express the lemon twist over the drink like a pro, then use it as garnish.
