Olympic fever is high as we head into the final rounds of the 2014 Winter games. Who cares whether you’re watching decked out in red and white or red, white and blue, or any other combo of colours – just as long as you’re cheering on your favourite athletes in a roomful of family and friends. What’s Olympic watching without a few spirits to keep those spirits high? So get ready to enjoy our top Canadian cocktails for Sochi 2014. Go Canada!

First up, we’ve got something gold for our medalists. The limited edition Molson Canadian Victory Bottle is proudly brewed to celebrate our athletes at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. It’s the same crisp light Molson Canadian brew but in a stylish large format bottle (more is more, right?) that will have you bumping bottles with each win.

If there’s one drink that screams Canada, it’s our famous Bloody Caesar! To each their own special twist, but what makes this drink work is its flavourful tomato base. Start with Walter, Canada’s first premium all-natural craft Caesar mix. Whether you take your Caesar neat (just add your favourite toppings and you’re golden!) or with a shot of good ol’ Canadian Vodka, a redder drink you won’t find! You may want to go with the spicy version as the athletes turn up the heat.

If you like your games on the stronger side, go for our famous Canadian Whisky cocktail. Start with one and a half ounces of Pike Creek Whisky (aged in port barrels) plus an ounce of Criollo Chocolate Raspberry Truffle liqueur. Stir in a splash of OJ and a drizzle of maple syrup before shaking over ice. Enjoy this concoction by a roaring fire as you watch the bobsleds whiz by!

Busting with pride as our athletes take the podium? Get ready to raise your glass full of something almost too sweet to behold: Criollo Chocolate Sea Salted Caramel. Keep it simple and just pour it over ice. Toast with this one again and again! Let’s GO Canada!
