Day 2 of our Canada Day Cocktail Planner

Nathan Cameron, Casey’s Bar & Grill’s mixologist suggests that adding cider offers a thirst-quenching, carbonating charge to the classics. The extra zing makes them perfect summer sippers to help you kick back on the patio on a super hot summer day. Nathan has made sure that these cocktails are not only easy to whip up, but they can be made in large batches too! Pour the cocktails or punch (when it’s in a larger batch) into a pretty glass beverage dispenser. Fill it with fresh fruit, ice and stack pretty punch glasses beside it.

This Blueberry Cider Sangria is a summer staple. It’s also to die for delicious – definitely not your mom’s Sangria! What makes this cider stand out from the rest is its added medley of fruit and spirits. Those simple touches result in an explosion of flavour all over your tastebuds. To boot, the cocktail’s subtle sweetness just enhances the fusion of all the various elements, creating a sangria that trulystands out.
