Carpano Antica Formula vermouth
Though advance tickets are sold out for the Roundhouse Winter Beer Fest Saturday (January 25, 11 am to 5 pm, craftbeerfest.ca) limited $25 tickets are still up for grabs at the gates. Cross your fingers and come early for a chance to feel Canadian to the bone while drinking craft beer in the cold.
Vermouth in small doses
Attention, cocktail geeks: minis of Carpano Antica Formula vermouth have been spotted at select LCBO stores (375 ml/$15.95, Vintages 360248). Who knows how long they'll last, but let's hope they become a Vintages fixture.
