Canalside Soda Co. Grand Opening

We’re finally having an official grand opening! Canalside Soda Co. started in late 2019 and it’s time to celebrate our fun, fizzy drinks with a party that lasts an entire long weekend.

Cocktail of the Month: Canalside Whiskey Sour

Cocktail of the Month: Canalside Whiskey SourThe classic cocktail with an orangey twistTwo things come to mind when we think of whiskey.
