Cheers to Pride month with this cocktail inspired by Jade Jolie of RuPaul's Drag Race!

Now that June's here, it's Pride month. Individuals and businesses are making the most of it across the country. From Pride-themed cider in Halifax to a schwack of interesting and inclusive events like Lilith Fair's upcoming one-woman drag dinner theatre show at Yellowhead Brewery, it's nice to see the majority of Canada supporting the community during an important time of year.

While Calgary Pride is still a couple of month away (from August 23 to September 1, to be exact), we're excited to be partnering with them again this year for Drags Benny 2.0. Our headliner for the June 23 brunch is none other than Jade Jolie of RuPaul's Drag Race.
