Valentine’s Day is kind of my favourite holiday ever! I was very happy to be able to partner with one of my favourite coffee shops, Aroma Espresso Bar, to collaborate with some of my favourite social people to celebrate all things hearts and hot chocolate.
Along with a classy atmosphere and a delicious menu, e11even has some amazingly delicious cocktails. My favourite cocktail? Their Georgian Mule. So tasty, I could drink 3 of these! If you’re looking for something yummy to pair this with, I suggest Nonna’s Meatball (This giant meatball is a crowd pleaser and my favourite dish!) or their Chocolate Pecan Pie. Yum. (more…)
I’m not really into sports, but I’m a big fan of all the food that goes along with spots. Think nachos, burgers, and other delicious bar eats.
Enter, Real Sports Bar, a mecca for sports fans, but also food fans! I had been here a couple of times in the past for non-sporting events, and had tried some of their food. (Shout out to the amazing Buffalo Chicken Pizza that I devoured!)
I was invited to try their brand new menu that will be launching this week! (more…)
Next weekend, the first Toronto Cider Festival will take over Yonge-Dundas Square! I’m so excited about this festival because I’m just starting to get into cider, and can’t wait to try the 15 cideries that will be featured! I’m looking forward to trying Angry Orchard. They’re a festival sponsor and have helped to bring the festival to life. (more…)
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.)
Summer may be fleeting, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it to the fullest! Next time you host an outdoor soirée, consider making this playful tea cocktail. Made with DAVIDsTEA Strawberry Colada, its sure to be a hit.

1. Steep tea for 5 minutes then strain.
2. Fill a medium bowl with ice and pour in tea.

Summer is halfway through, and if you haven’t been to the Drake Hotel patio yet, then you’re missing out.
The Drake Skyyard is arguably one of the best patios in the city. Combine that with its artistic atmosphere and delicious food, and you’ve got a winner. (more…)
