At least eight people shared their story this week, including Joanna McDonald, Izzy Hirji and Awish Aslam, a trio of university students who were all singled out and denied access to the events.
On Thursday, the Prime Minister offered an apology. But if it's leaving the PM with a sour taste in his mouth, a Campaign Cocktail will take surely off the edge.
CBC Day 6 Campaign Cocktails: Rally Rejector
As always, we tasked Toronto Temperance Society bartender Oliver Stern with creating a cocktail inspired by this week's campaign trail.
Day 6 Campaign Cocktail: Rally Rejector *in honour of three students who had a hard time attending Conservative rallies this week, our drink uses three ingredients that have been hard to find in Canada. Feel free to substitute if you want to experiment.
1 part Yellow Chartreuse
1 part Luxardo Maraschino Originale
1 part Sazerac Rye (or other straight rye whisky)
1 part Lime juice
Combine all ingredients in shaker glass. Add ice and shake 10-15 seconds. Double strain into a cocktail glass, or into shot glasses.
Pre-register the cocktail with your taste buds, then proceed to allow it into your liver.
Do not drink so many Rally Rejectors that you actually physically begin to reject them. Drink like you vote: responsibly and without regret.
