Southampton - Canadian Club Whisky offers some tasty cocktails to celebrate the first day of Spring on March 20, with warmer weather around the corner.

From the bright-colored "Mango Smash" to the multi-colored, classic "Thunderbird" cocktail, these drinks not only go with the spring theme, but are also easy to mix up and great to enjoy during the season.

Mango Smash

 • 1.50 parts Canadian Club
 • 3 - 1" chunks of fresh mango
 • 1 half moon slice of orange
 • 2 sugar cubes
 • 2 to 3 dashes of Orange Bitters
 • Soda water
 • Maraschino cherry for garnish

In an Old Fashion or double rocks glass, muddle the sugar cube with the bitters, add fruit and muddle again, ensuring the release of oils from the orange peel. Fill glass with small, cubed ice, add whisky and stir. Add splash of soda water, stir once more, drop in a cherry for garnish.
