Last night I attended my first ever Toronto Cocktail Week bartender HogtownShakedown competition at the Drake Hotel. I’m by no means a drink expert so it was a really interesting to see five super talented bartenders from the city make some custom drinks for a panel of judges and explain to everyone the story, ingredients and idea behind each drink. Bartending can be so creative and is definitely an art form. I was rooting for Josh F Lindley, my friend Jessica Blaine Smith‘s man and bartender at Bar Isabel. Though he didn’t end up winning, he definitely had the best stories, best glasses and is a fantastic barman. Worth checking out next year!
Plans for the weekend? It’s supposed to be a rainy one here in Toronto, so I bet I’ll be spending lot’s of time reading and catching up on Netflix and the latest movies.
