proof whisky, the Pantry, Vol. 124



St. Patty’s Day is usually the time to get out to your local pub and celebrate with your pals. However, if you do want to keep the festivities more intimate, we can get you started with a couple of great St. Patty's Day house party tips.  

 

Irish cooler 1 oz proof whisky • 1 can William Cider • 2 dashes Peychauds bitters • 1 lemon slice
Pour all ingredients into an ice-filled glass. Garnish with a lemon slice & enjoy.



If you plan on hosting a St. Patty’s Day gathering this year, we highly recommend stopping by The Pantry for some authentic Irish takeout. (1620 Gerrard St. East, 416.268.1342)

Maeve McCarthy, owner of McCarthy’s Irish pub and her twin sister Sinead have brought a taste of Ireland to Toronto’s Little India neighbourhood with The Pantry. Located in what was a fruit and vegetable shop on Gerrard and Coxwell, and just two minutes away from their irish pub, it’s the first of its kind for Toronto.


All the deli foods — soups, coleslaw, chicken curry pies, shepherd’s pie, sausage rolls, fresh baguette sandwiches, Guinness porter cakes, Madeira cakes, scones and brown soda bread — are homemade on site. For beverages, they offer tea, Fanta and Lucozade for a taste from back home

A couple of the customers favourites are the Guinness and beef pie and the soda bread.


After we stopped in for a visit, Maeve sent us on our way with a couple of delicious hand-made sausage rolls. Maeve was an absolute darling and her rolls were incredibly light and flaky. Visit their facebook page, where Maeve says a lot of people place their orders.


 McCarthy's Irish Pub is a popular watering hole located just around the corner. It serves as the most authentic Irish pub in the area. Live music and Guinness on tap. (1801 Gerrard Street E)
