proof rum, Bamboozled, Vol. 56



Traditionally, Vitaminwater (www.vitaminwatercanada.ca) has been consumed as a healthy means of hydration the day after a big drinking night out. Well, last week, to kick off Toronto’s Fashion Week, we were asked to develop cocktails using the hangover elixir as a mixer. Nip it in the bud the night before with these two all-in-one drinks served at the Seven Continents Warehouse party, Bamboozle.
