Get the door, it's the liquor store
While not many Americans could probably identify Alberta on a map, this province is nearly as big as Texas; in... fact, one of Alberta’s nicknames is the Texas of the North, a cheeky nod to the province’s notable oil and ranching economies — not to mention a distinct “wild frontier” spirit among Alberta’s people. Bordering British Columbia and directly north of Montana, Alberta is a nature lover’s paradise. It may be compared to Texas for its size and industry, but Alberta has just one-sixth of the Lone Star State’s overpacked population. The Canadian Rocky Mountains cover nearly 10% of Alberta’s territory, and over 600 lakes decorate the province. A charming ski chalet city called Banff sits in the foothills of Cascade Mountain and hosts an annual outdoor adventure-inspired film festival that tours in over 40 countries. After a long day on the slopes (or just snuggled up watching a film), you deserve a cozy beverage befitting the frigid evening in this Texas of the North. With over five different liquor store partners on Drizly around Calgary, Edmonton and Okotons combined with one easy mobile app, it’s easier than ever to order Canadian whisky, mixers and even fresh ingredients like lemon juice and maple syrup — hot toddies, anyone?
