This drink is named for a town on the banks of the St. Maurice River in Canada’s French-speaking Quebec Province. Hence the Canadian whiskey base and the French-made Dubonnet and Cointreau. Vive le Quebec libre!
2 ounces Canadian whiskey
1/2 ounce Dubonnet Rouge
1 tablespoon Cointreau
Pour all the ingredients into an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake until very cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
Tasting notes: Dubonnet harmonizes well in this pleasant whiskey cocktail.
