The Beacon Hill Buck

Woohoo, we found a cocktail with 100% Canadian ingredients!

An awesome drink for Canada Day celebration (and for any other for that matter), this refreshing and tasty drink is a great find! Made from Canadian whisky, Canadian maple syrup and Canadian ginger ale, served with ice and a lemon/lime twist, this triple Canadian is a true Canadian 😀

Here is how this oldie got its funny name. Buck or mule, except for being animals, are archaic names for mixed drinks that involve ginger ale or ginger beer, citrus juice and bourbon, scotch, or whisky!

That’s enough talking, rise the glasses 🙂

The Beacon Hill Buck


  • 2 oz. Canadian whisky chilled
  • 1/2 oz. maple syrup
  • 1/2 oz. freshly squeezed lemon/lime
  • ginger ale


Build in the glass with ice.
Mix all ingredients but ginger ale.
Stir to dissolve the maple syrup fully.
Top with ginger ale.

Easy peasy. 🙂 Cheers!
