Summer weather has decided to grace us with its presence in Toronto this week, and thank goodness it has. With September starting, we all know that cooler days are ahead…so why not take advantage of the sun? You know what goes really well with sunshine? Cocktails. (Actually, cocktails are kind of amazing and go well with many things, but I digress.)
Aroma Espresso is one of my favourite cafes in Toronto. I remember when I first came across one in New York, and I was so excited to see that they had made their way to Toronto. In the winter, I love devouring their hot chocolates, but in the summer, I have a new obsession.
Aroma makes some delicious frosty drinks. I’m a fan of their Iced Berry Tea Lemonade (berry tea from Pluck mixed with lemonade! Yum.) but it gets better.
At licensed Aroma locations, you can get cocktails! (In Toronto, these locations are Liberty Village, Yonge and Eglinton, Forest Hill, Shops at Don MIlls, Avenue Road, Bay and Dundas and Niagara on the Lake.)
I enjoyed sipping on an Iced Berry Tea Lemonade mixed with rum with some friends. Other popular spiked drinks we enjoyed that day were the Aroma Rise (Blended orange juice with a dash of vanilla) with vodka and the Iced Aroma Float with Baileys.
Of course, we couldn’t resist trying out some of the food!
If all of this looks amazing to you, then you’re in luck! We are giving away a $50 giftcard to Aroma for you to try your own cocktails and find your own #AromaFaves. All you have to do is tell me your favourite Aroma item or your beverage of choice. Winner will be contacted on Monday Sept 7th. Good luck!
