Saskatoon Berry Busk


  • 60 milliliters (2 ounces) Canadian Club Rye
  • 3-4 mint leaves (muddled into glass)
  • Ginger ale
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of Saskatoon Berry Spread
  • 1 mint spring (garnish)
  • 1 lime wedge


  1. Grab a collins glass and three to four leaves of mint. Give the mint a quick slap between each of your hands to break the leaves and release the aroma. Then place these leaves into the Collins glass and begin to muddle the leaves into the base of the glass.
  2. Add Saskatoon berry jam into the base of the glass and then add in the 60 milliliters (two ounces) of rye. Grab a teaspoon and give this a quick stir to evenly integrate.
  3. Fill the glass just over half full with ice. Fill the remainder of the glass full with ginger ale.
  4. Garnish with lime wedge, mint leaf and pickled Saskatoon berry skewer.
  5. Ensure you give the drink a good stir to ensure all of the flavours blend.
