Drink This: Disgraceland’s Swill in Hell


Published:

Disgraceland beckons passersby with its strands of Christmas lights twinkling in the window — regardless of the season. Inside, the Bloor Street bar caters to a mixed crowd, with patrons entwined in board games (plucked from a hodgepodge on the shelf), cheering over a foosball match (there’s a table dead-centre) or noshing on food (the menu is vegans and vegetarian friendly).

Although most kids choose to swill beers, a cocktail menu is there for those who wish to widen their strokes. Created by bartender Ana Wolkowski, the list of libations includes a number of classics in addition to some riffs on the tried and true.

We opted for the Swill in Hell ($13), which, for the month, deviates from the menu descriptor slightly. Pairing Evan Williams Apple Orchard liqueur — redolent of nutmeg, cinnamon and other warming spices — with Basil Hayden’s bourbon, the drink is served over a single rock and finished with a curl of preserved orange rind.

This’ll stave off the November chill in a way a cold brew simply can’t.   

Disgraceland, 965 Bloor St. W., 647-347-5263
