Canadian Cocktails For Your Olympic Party

There are so many great reasons to throw a winter bash coming up in the next few weeks, from the Superbowl, to Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day, and the Chinese New Year. One that only comes around every 4 years is the Winter Olympics.

The Winter Olympics are in Canada this year, so you should give your party a little flavor of the area. If you’re planning a Winter Olympic viewing party, here are a few ideas to help you plan, and some cocktails to go with them.

  • Play Euchre, a traditional Canadian card game. This popular Canadian card game is said to have introduced the Joker into modern playing packs.
