The comprehensive cocktail guide to Shake, Stir and Strainbow! 2021

Here's where you can sip Pride-themed cocktails in support of a great 2SLGBTQ+ cause

Alumni's Creamsicle Fizz is one of many cocktails helping to raise funds for Skipping Stone Foundation this month.

It’s no secret that Alberta is home to an amazing array of cocktail creators, but there’s just something about bartenders across the province rallying together to showcase their creativity for a great cause that makes summer sipping taste so much better!

From August 13 to September 3, more than 50 restaurants and bars from across Alberta will be serving up unique Pride-themed cocktails to help raise awareness and funds for Skipping Stone Foundation, a province-wide charity that supports trans and gender-diverse youth through a variety of year-round programming.

From popular Calgary destinations like Deane House, Proof, and Bridgette Bar to Edmonton institutions such as Central Social Hall and Rostizado, to Canmore’s Tapas, Banff Ave Brewing Co. and beyond, here is your definitive guide to the 2021 Shake, Stir & Strainbow fundraiser cocktail campaign!
