To a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add 1 ½ oz proof rum, 1 oz lime juice & 1 oz vanilla and cinnamon simple syrup. Shake sharply and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist.


*vanilla & cinnamon simple syrup combine equal parts sugar and boiling water. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Pour into a jar or bottle with a lid and drop in a vanilla bean and cinnamon stick. Let cool and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. HINT: Remove cinnamon after a day because the flavour will become very intense.

Garrisons (907 Queen Street West, 2nd floor  www.garrisons.ca) Doug Stewart and his wife Hollis Hopkins opened this cool retro barber shop in their Victorian home almost 2 years ago, along with barber Alan Brown. Inside, an antique city map covers much of one wall, along with a display of photos of the area from the city archives. Little displays of retro men's accessories line the park-framing windows. A spacious deck at the back is open, when the sun is shining.



Sunny Mummy Spa & Boutique: (903 Queen Street West, Toronto, 647-430-3883  www.sunnymummy.com) Named after Owner Nilla Petta’s daughter Soleil, Sunny Mummy is the first of it’s kind in Toronto.

The Combine Eatery: (162 Danforth Avenue, 416-792-8088 www.thecombineeatery.com) The Combine Eatery is one of the first restaurants in Toronto to offer a So-Cal menu, fresh enough to trick you into believing that you are in some cool Southern California city, like San Diego. They serve a combination of Canadian comfort foods like poutine, lobster fritters, burgers and BLT’s beside an extensive list of sunny so-cal items like, fish tacos (choose grilled or fried), burritos, chipotle grilled seafood and meats. 

They also have a good variety of salads and lighter fare to choose from. With friendly staff and awesome drinks, it’s a perfect place to hang. And make sure to order a proof 'The Make Thyme' while you're there. It's on the menu.
