proof rum, out with the old! Vol. 86



Well, it’s yard-sale season again. And because this year, we will be organizing and pricing our merch in much warmer than usual temperatures, we have decided to mix a simple and refreshing drink to enjoy while peddling our goods.

Here’s an easy, yet classic recipe that should help pass the time between customers. It's our twist on the Dark & Stormy.
Legend has it that this refreshing drink was originally concocted in Bermuda for a young sailor. The bartender poured the ginger beer and then, seeing that he had forgotten the rum, tipped the shot of dark rum on top.

bright & sunny 1 oz proof rum • 4 oz ginger beer • lime wedge
Pour the rum into a tall, ice-filled glass. Add the ginger beer. Garnish with lime wedges and serve.



Once you have cleaned out some of your old dishes and furniture, you may find that your cupboards seem a little too bare. 
Perhaps some new patio accessories would fill the gap.


 We have looked around a few Toronto shops to see what is on offer this patio season. Here are some of our favourites:(www.cb2.com, www.crateandbarrel.com, www.potterybarn.com, ikea.com, homesense.ca, www.presidentschoice.ca)
