sortiledgemojto1 Maple Whiskey Mojito (The Sortilege Mojito)

I apologize that it’s taken me this long to get my newest cocktail love to you. I’m sorry, there’s no excuse, other than..well… contrary to my reputation, I actually don’t drink these during the day.  (Fine, maybe with all my cookbook work I WANT to drink during the day. But I still haven’t caved.)

I’ve had no opportunity with ample light for photographs, so it waited for a weekend.

Just for you, I’ve stepped up my day drinking. The things I do for you guys!


The original recipe is the Sortilege Mojito, that my friend Nicole brought as her new recipe for my Christmas soiree. I had asked her to bring fixin’s for a great cocktail and she totally delivered.

This is one tasty cocktail and I’m sure it’s because of the maple whiskey and the brown sugar. There’s something perfect about this recipe.

I’ve served it since, to rave reviews and I’ve also sent the recipe to friends who love Sortilege, to more rave reviews.

It’s amazing.

For those of you who don’t have Sortilege, I’m sorry. This recipe comes straight from their website and I can assure you, there is no maple whiskey like it. I’ve settled for a maple version here while I am in the States, but there is nothing, and I mean nothing, like true Sortilege.

You can use a maple whiskey (like I am) but you need to make sure it’s really strong with the maple flavor or it’s simply not as good.

Honestly, try this. If you love maple, you will love Sortilege and you will LOVE this drink! It’s also a serious party pleaser, everyone loves it, even people who aren’t traditional mojito lovers.

Love you more than whiskey,

The best mojito I've ever drank uses maple whiskey and brown sugar paired with classic lime and mint. I'm never returning to normal mojitos again.
Original recipe from the Sortilege website.

  • 1.5 oz of Sortilage Original or your choice of maple whiskey
  • 2 oz of club soda
  • 12 leaves mint

    The Executive Chef, Darren Brown, of the Fairmont Pacific Rim was with us and took some Wasabi leaves back to try the drink on his summer menu.

    No, I have not tried this one, but we invented a Wasabi Mojito last summer. WE grow Wasabi and decided to try the leaves in a drink- it was a big hit at the Brunch we were hosting!

    I used to make the trek to Quebec to buy Sortilege a case at a time, did a little dance when it was finally available in Ontario!
