The Frozen Habitant

To kick off summer, we’ve taken a sixties-era cocktail and reimagined it as an icy blender drink. The Frozen Habitant whirls Canadian whisky, maple syrup, lemon juice and bitters into a polar vortex, yielding a smooth, refreshing libation that’s sweet, sour and smoky. Have this one at the ready for Victoria Day and for barbecues through to fall.

4 oz Canadian whisky
2 oz pure maple syrup
2 oz strained fresh lemon juice
6 dashes Angostura bitters
2 cups (500 mL) ice cubes
Compostable or paper straws

1. Stir together whisky, maple syrup, lemon juice and bitters in an airtight container. Cover
and freeze at least 6 hours and up to 2 days. (It will not solidify because of the alcohol. You just want it very cold.)
2. Place 2 lowball glasses in freezer just until chilled.
3. Pour drink mixture into blender and add ice. Blend until smooth. Divide among chilled glasses. Serve with straws.
