Yum, yum: a vacation beverage for your enjoyment

Like most Canadians, we are off relaxing for the Civic Holiday today. A long weekend in the summer isn’t complete without a tasty drink, so here’s a recipe to mix up and enjoy in the sun.

This margarita comes courtesy of Quinn’s Steakhouse and Irish Bar. It doesn’t seem likely that an authentic Irish pub should be able to produce a great margarita, but Quinn’s Margarita hits the mark. Many joints in town use a processed, sugary mix instead of freshly squeezed juice. Don’t settle for the alternative. Once you go Quinn’s, you never go back — aside from great cocktails, they boast an amazing menu from chef Paul Pisa. Visit their site for more details and location.
