The CoHo's Buttersnatch shot. I'll take 15.

Thanks to this colourful selection of cocktails and shooters, this week you can drink proud too.

Tall Ship Silva
Queens Wharf, Halifax Waterfront, 429-9463
Hop on the Silva's ever-popular pride cruise and try a Rock Lobster. Whiskey, raspberry Sour Puss and cranberry juice make for a sweet and sour treat.

The Company House
2202 Gottingen Street, 404-3050
Sweeten your palate at one of Pride's home bases with their popular (and orange) Buttersnatch shot. You can't go wrong with butterscotch schnapps, you just can't.

1505 Barrington Street, 423-6632
Niche's patio is a prime post-parade drinking spot. Go mellow yellow with their Subtropica martini---a blend of Grey Goose vodka, peach schnapps, apricot brandy and pineapple juice

Menz Bar
2182 Gottingen Street, 446-6969
See green at this Pride hot-spot by testing their Green Monkey shot; it's an interesting mix of creme de bananes and creme de menthe.

The Fireside
1500 Brunswick Street, 423-5995
If your pre-drinks find you at The Fireside, chill out with a Mr. Freeze martini. Vodka, blue curaçao, Galliano and a splash of lime create an alcoholic blue freezie, and it's damn delish.

5184 Sackville Street, 422-2957
Dance your pants off all through Pride week at Refs, with a Purple Haze in hand. The mix of blue curaçao, vodka, lime, 7-Up and grenadine, of course, will cool you down fast. And this week, you'll need it.
