Plus: Labatt Buys Mill Street Brewery
Canadian Cocktails? Yes.
Local cocktail lovers should snag a copy of A Field Guide To Canadian Cocktails, by Victoria Walsh and Scott McCallum ($24.95, Appetite by Random House). Full of recipes, stories from the authors’ trans-Canadian travels and reflections on our country’s drinking culture, the guide follows Walsh and McCallum’s adventures across our fair land to discover what makes a drink quintessentially Canadian.
