Cocktail menu and beer.

Classic Cocktails

The Derby  12

Buffalo Trace, Carpano Antica, Dry Curacao, Lime.  Bridging the gab between cocktails and horse racing, this refreshing mixture is perfect for home or the track.

The Ford  12

Haymans Old Tom, Dolin Dry, Benedictine, Bitters.  No affiliations with the horseless carriage that bore the same name, this cocktail delivers a smooth herbaceous finish.

Jack Rose  13

Pere Magloire, Alberta Premium, Lemon, Grenadine.  Showcasing bright notes of fruit and apple along with a truly Albertan rye.

Boulevardier  15 

Bulleit Bourbon, Punt é Mes, Campari.  Always a favorite of ours at North 53.  Bittersweet and boozy!


House Cocktails

Nihon Sun  14

Suntory Toki, Plum Wine, Lapsang Souchong, Bitters.  It only makes sense to showcase a well-balanced Japanese whisky with an equally balanced cocktail.  We find that the smokey essence of lapsang souchong allows this drink to bloom into something that truly warms the soul.

Sabio’s Pleasure  15

Don Julio Reposado, Haymans Sloe Gin, Lemon, House Grenadine, Sage.  Pairing the fruit forward flavours of our house grenadine and sloe gin with a slightly aged tequila invite a celebration of the senses.  Just sit back, relax, and imbibe your time until you can enjoy this on a patio again.

Year of the Rabbit  12

Pisco El Gobernado, Carrot, Lemon, Ginger, Cinnamon Syrup, Egg White.  This autumnal sour will help you embrace the changing of the seasons.  Carrot, cinnamon, and ginger play nice in this fall friendly cocktail.

Maybe Tomorrow, Doc  14

Great King Artists Blend, Laphroaig, Calvados, Apple Ginger Shrub, Lemon, Apple.  Orchards full of juicy ripe apples makes you think of scotch right?  Regardless, this sweet, tart, and smokey libation ought to keep you out of the doctors office.  (Note: We are not medical professionals.)

Freyja’s Folly  13

Linne Lysholm, Chardonnay, Thyme Liquor, Fenugreek, Lime, Sauerkraut.  Akavit, fenugreek and sauerkraut form a tempting trio in this approachable savoury cocktail inspired by the flavours of Northern Europe.  Next stop, pickled herring!

Black Moon  14

Mezcal, Vanilla Pear Balsamic Shrub, Amaro Montenegro, Salt, Charred Lemon.  Dark as a winter’s eve and twice as flavourful, this sultry sipper defies description.  Smokey Mezcal, fruity shrub, and bittersweet Montenegro will excite the soul even on the blackest of nights.

Sweater Weather  14

No.3 Gin, Averna, Lemon, Sugar, Green Cardamom, Bitters.  Expressions of fresh muddled cardamom pair nicely together with the peppery gin.  Fresh lemon juice still makes this cocktail a refreshing sipper but the flavours together scream autumn.

London Calling  13

Haymans Old Tom, Poli Miele, Galliano, Earl Grey, Lemon, Egg White.  Earl gray tea, rich honey grappa, and a classic British gin form a delightful frothy ode to tea based lattes.  Hat’s off for tea time!

Welcome to the Neighborhood  14

Rittenhouse Rye, Dolin Dry, Strega, Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927, Bitters, H2O.  We have a firm belief here at North 53 that experimentation leads to revelation.  This libation serves that belief to the letter.  Instead of diluting this drink with ice, we’ve decided to add room temperature distilled water to allow the herbaceous undertones to shine through against the over-proof rye.

Smoke & Oak Fashioned 15

Oaken Gin, Smoked Maple Syrup, Orange Oil, Bitters. The drink. The legend. The Smoke & Oak. This take on a classic old fashioned seems to keep our regulars happy, and that makes us happy! (B. B.)
