This is not a "How To" post because I don't think there is ever a way to say goodbye to your pet - no matter how old they are. Today we had to say goodbye to our toy poodle, Mousse. Being the owner of a 20 year old dog, it was inevitable that this day … Continue reading Saying Goodbye to Your Pet
One of my favourite patio drinks is the Peach Bellini. I absolutely love the sweet peachy flavours in my summer cocktail. This past weekend, I hosted a wine slushy party with some of my close friends and made these peach bellini-inspired wine slushes.

Their most … Continue reading Wayne Gretzky Estate: A Distillery Tour

Contrary to popular belief, poke is not always served on rice or lettuce - the seafood can also be served on it's own with seasoning. In the past few years, North America has adapted … Continue reading Food Trends: Poke Bowls
I should start this off with some full disclosure: I'm a fan of Collingwood. I know, that's sort of an unpopular opinion among whisky snobs but if you think about it, you've probably had much worse. Collingwood has been pretty consistent in taste over the few years I've been drinking it and by my books, … Continue reading Malt Collective: Collingwood Double Barrel
