Happy Hour - Sweet Craig


I don't know about you, but I've got a serious case of the Mondays. It's hard to get back to work after spending a weekend on the lake sailing, so what better way to perk up a Monday by talking about cocktails again! There's a restaurant in Montreal, called Deville Dinerbar, that makes AMAZING cocktails. My favourite, called the Sweet Craig, is named after 007 himself, Daniel Craig. What's not to like? I've been playing around with the ingredients trying to re-create it, and I think I've finally settled on the right mix. Read on for the recipe!

- 1 oz. Vodka
- 1 oz. Amaretto
- 1 1/2 oz. Chambord raspberry liqueur
- 1/2 oz. Lime
- Lemon soda

In an ice filled shaker, combine the vodka, amaretto, chambord and lime. Shake it up good! Strain into an ice-filled glass.

Top it off with lemon soda and a straw. Enjoy!

This recipe makes enough for a large highball glass, or, in my case, a 500mL mason jar. You could easily halve it if you prefer a lowball tumbler.

Slightly sweet with an edge, and a killer kick, this is a great drink for a hot summer day. Let me know if you try it out!
