It's always nice to be able to give back to a local charity, especially when it comes in the form of drinking. This week, Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts' restaurant property, Bar C, celebrated its second birthday. This week, as a nice gesture to the city that has supported them through two years of business, they're donating proceeds from feature cocktails to initiatives like Inn From The Cold, the Calgary Humane Society and more.

“We want to celebrate Bar C’s second birthday in a way that allows us to thank Calgarians for their patronship over the last two years and give back to the community in which we live and work,” says Lauren Webb of Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts.

CRMR, as a whole (they have a variety of hotel/lodge properties and multiple restaurants in Alberta), has been noted for stepping up their cocktail game in recent years with a selection of dynamic drinks coming out of Bar C, as well as Bar C's older brother and next-door-neighbour Cilantro, care of award-winning mixologist, Dominik Aschauer.

If you won't be in town this week, Kelly Akins (the man behind the bar at Bar C) has generously shared a couple of the well-crafted cocktail recipes with us. Do us a solid and make a little donation to a worthwhile charity in your area if you find yourself making one of these at home. Cool?
