There are some truly outrageous cocktails in Calgary.

With so many great bars and bartenders, there are bound to be a few menus with some huge cocktails and wild recipes.

Whether it’s been a long day at the office, you want to impress your friends, or you just want something a little bit crazy – the reason really doesn’t matter.

What matters is that you’ve got the attitude to tackle something off the beaten path of the normal drinks menu.

Casaer Stack

Cleaver on 17th Avenue has a few wild cocktails, but this one has to be the most eye-catching.

The Caesar Stack is topped with a fried chicken drum and wing, jalapeno waffle, beef slider, house bacon, tomato fennel ketchup, and a tempura corn dog.

The food sitting on top of this tasty drink also tastes incredible, from the waffles made from scratch to the two-day brined fried chicken that is then sous vide in chicken drippings and deep-fried in a special cleaver spice.

Chef Spain, coming from Ireland, didn’t always love the Canadian cocktail, and now she’s created one of the best places to go on a Calgary Caesar Crawl.

Address: 524 17th Avenue SW Unit 102, Calgary


Green Bottle Kitchen & Soju

Soju Dog

This massive drink is a refreshing soju dog, a blend of soju and fresh fruit.

Sip with friends and then decide who might be putting the empty watermelon on their head!

Address: 683 10th Street SW #105, Calgary


Lanai Rooftop

50$ Daiquiri

Fun and colourful drinks like the blue Hawaiian, mai tai, pina colada, and a Trinidadian tiki bowl will be found on the menu here, but it’s the one-of-a-kind $50 daiquiri that’s one of the outrageous cocktails in Calgary.

Made with three different kinds of rum, this massive drink also has charred lime, pineapple,  passionfruit, and falernum syrup.
