One of the best things about the holidays is all of the festive holiday drinks! It’s the perfect excuse to grab a friend and catch up over a steaming beverage.
For the holidays, Starbucks has some new and old festive drinks that I’m just dying to try. (more…)
It’s so hot. Right? It’s so, so hot and it’s not even August yet. Keep yourself cool by whipping up this delicious cocktail. This cocktail uses Thirsty Buddha coconut water, an all natural Canadian product. For a unique twist, try making it with their aloe & coconut water!
6 oz Fresh pineapple juice
4 oz Thirsty Buddha coconut water
2 oz Vodka
1 tsp Organic honey
½ tsp Fresh ginger juice
Combine pineapple juice, Thirsty Buddha coconut water, ginger juice and vodka in cocktail shaker. Shake to combine. Pour into serving glass. Add a touch of honey and add lime juice. Top off with mint leaves and enjoy!
It’s almost Ontario Cider Week! From May 27th to June 4th, this week is devoted to celebrating local cider. This is my favourite week, because cider is my preferred drink of choice. Cider is rapidly becoming more popular in Toronto, which is awesome to see.
I’m really excited to share this event with you! The Craft Cider Cruise brings together 12 cider companies and 1 brewery for an evening cruise along Lake Ontario on June 5th, at 7pm. This 3 hour boat ride is $40 and includes a commemorative mug along with four sample tokens that can be used at one of the participating cider companies for a 4oz sample of your choice. There will also be some tasty bites to buy on board.
Participating cider companies include: Pommies, Forbidden, Spirit Tree, Thornbury, Revel Cider, Shiny Apple Cider and more.
Sounds like fun? Grab your ticket here before it sells out!
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…)
