This morning the Greater Toronto Area was blasted with some wicked cold weather (and unfortunately it will be sticking around for at least a week so bundle up Toronto!) but luckily I got in a super fun weekend before the deep chill set in.
A divine Saturday night dinner at The Saint Tavern (a must-visit when in Toronto, food and service were beyond marvellous!) followed by an amusing performance of 'Avenue Q' at the Lower Ossington Theatre, made ever more delightful when I happened upon one delish cocktail at The Saint! One of my very favourite daily reads, A Crimson Kiss, featured the 'Aviation' cocktail on Friday morning and while I spent the rest of the day trying to source some 'crème de violette' to mix up a drinky or two, I came up empty-handed. How amused was I when I saw it listed as a featured cocktail at The Saint!
I took it as a sign of fate and just had to try it out, all in the name of research of course!
I can now say with conviction that it will definitely be worth my new search for the elusive 'crème de violette'!
Sunday was spent quietly at home, nursing a smidge of a headache due to my Saturday night 'research' but the Lemontree kiddos were more than sweet and so excited to play a little game called 'who can be mummy's quietest helper', giving me plenty of opportunity to rest and recuperate, ready to battle Mother Nature and her boy Jack Frost this week!
But now tell me-what fun did you have this weekend?
