Big Beehive Cocktail Recipe

Sip Lake Louise in your living room with our Big Beehive cocktail.

Inspired by the Big Beehive peak right here in Lake Louise, this cocktail is perfect for your at-home happy hour. If you’re missing Banff National Park, whip up a Big Beehive, close your eyes and imagine you’re sitting on our patio. Parked right in front of Lake Louise, mountain wind in your hair and drink in hand. Ah, serenity!


  • 1½ oz Woodford Bourbon
  • ½ oz Grand Marnier
  • ½ oz spiced or age syrup
  • ½ lemon
  • Dash Angostura


Shake with ice, strain into rocks glass. Add ice, garnish with Star anise and orange slice.

This drink is easy to make and even easier to sip. This is the perfect cocktail for a pre-dinner drink or night cap for those evenings when you wish you were having fondue at Walliser Stube after a big day of hiking in the Canadian Rockies. Even if your only hike was from the couch to the fridge today, you’ve earned yourself a Big Beehive. Cheers!
