Drink Recipes: Canadian Club Whisky’s “Boardwalk Empire” Inspired Cocktails

It only makes sense to celebrate the season two premiere of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” with Canadian Club Whisky. Canadian Club was apparently quite the hot product during the Prohibition Era. It’s said that an astonishing 20,000 cases of Canadian Club were smuggled into the United States each month during that time. So when you tune into HBO this Sunday evening, which I strongly suggest that you do, you should make sure you’re sipping on one of these Canadian Club cocktails.
