Complementing Calgary’s red-hot food scene, bartenders (who prefer the more humble moniker as opposed to the trendy term, “mixologist”) are mixing and muddling house-made spiced syrups and smoked bison with top-shelf spirits like floral Botanist gin and aged Guatemalan rum. From chic restaurants to dark, sexy lounges, cocktail connoisseurs can expect novel tastes, exciting experimentation and revisited classics on par with cocktail hotspots like Vancouver, Toronto and Portland.
