Crown Royal Flavors and Shooter Recipes

Hear ye, hear ye! Make way for the Crown. Crown Royal is more than a whisky with a regal name. In fact, the brand got its name because it was created to honor King George VI and Queen Elizabeth’s first trip to Canada. As the top-selling Canadian whisky in the world, it’s no wonder that in North America many believe that Crown Royal does, indeed, wear the crown of whiskies.

The most preferred method to drink Crown Royal is neat or on the rocks. However, when you’re pleasing a variety of party guests you’ll want a crowd pleaser that goes down sweet and easy. So, we bring you a collection of flavored Crown Royal whiskies and party shooter recipes that will do just that!
