Drink This: the elderflower martini at Park Hyatt Toronto


Published:

Although the weather is rapidly cooling off, there are still some patio-worthy days remaining. With that in mind, the rooftop lounge at Park Hyatt Toronto is a cozy space, outfitted with tufted leather banquettes, tables nestled closely together and Joe Gomes behind the bar (he’s only been there 53 years). Out on the patio, imbibers can sip on one of his cocktails while taking in the season’s changing colours and peering out at the CN Tower.

Our pick is the rather festive elderflower martini ($24). Pairing Grey Goose La Poire with St-Germain artisinal elderflower liqueur, the drink is finished with Anna Spinato prosecco and a sliver of bosc pear. With each beverage comes a dish of olives, almonds and bar mix, and should the mood strike, patrons can dabble in a fine Cuban cigar.

Park Hyatt Toronto, 4 Avenue Rd., 416-925-1234

The calories and fat are reasonable for a filling meal, but the sodium gives you three quarters of your daily intake in one sitting! Don’t go adding any kimchi fries on the side.

In Season: Mustard is more than just the top condiment at restaurants like Toronto’s Black Hoof

Canada is the world’s leading producer of mustard seeds. So this week, we’re veering west of Ontario to talk about how the yellow/honey/hot mustard plastered all over your late night hotdog (often my midday snack) probably started in the Prairies’ mustard fields.

Inside the world of AAA Bar, purveyor of Toronto’s most authentic Texas-style barbecue

Inside a corrugated tin lean-to near the corner of Gerrard and Broadview, you’ll find one of the most intense barbecue setups in the city. There, four Traeger grills operate nearly non-stop, slowly inundating beef, pork and chicken with oak smoke. Brisket and ribs emerge sheathed in crispy, candy-sweet bark, tinged deep pink beneath the surface.
